“Wild is the Wind” ~ David Bowie (R.I.P.)

Deeply saddened by the passing of one of my favourite artists whose music will always remain an essential part of the soundtrack of my life.

“Wild is the Wind”

One of the most beautiful love songs
ever to have been written.

Turn the volume up really loud!

wild = impetuoso
caress = carezza
hungriness = fame
blow = soffiare
through = attraverso

spring = primavera
leaf = foglia

cling = stringersi

  1. Mr.Bowie wrote songs, above all, about being an outsider: an alien, a misfit, a sexual adventurer, a faraway astronaut. His music was always a mutable blend : rock,cabaret,jazz and what he called “plastic soul”, but it was suffused with genuine soul. He also captured the drama and longing of every-day life, enough to give him No. 1 pop hits like ” Let’s Dance.
