David Bowie – Hunky Dory

Reblogging this as a good review of one of my favourite Bowie albums – although much as I like all the individual tracks on Hunky Dory I do prefer The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the spiders from Mars.

It’s a hard thing to pick a favorite Bowie album. I’ve spent so much of my life with his music, discovering, and re-discovering, hits and deeper cuts alike, album to album. I’ve listened to them on vinyl, cassette, CD, and yes, even 8-Track. Although time has changed what songs hit me, and what albums I gravitate towards, there’s one that has remained consistent, beloved, and even made it to the number 1 spot of Lyriquediscorde’s Top 30 Albums. Hunky Dory.

The album was recorded at Trident Studios in July 1971, several days after his Glastonbury appearance. Hunky Dory has been said to…

2013-09-19 10.17.45 sommeWilfred Owen is etched on the collective British memory of the Great War in a way that no other poet is. I first came across Anthem For Doomed Youth and Dulce Et Decorum Est in the fourth form at school, in the late 1960s, long before I met any other poetry from that time. So what is it that makes Owen stand out, and is he better than the others?

His own tragic story adds poignancy to his legacy; certainly he was not the only poet to be killed in the war, but the story of his death in battle only a week before the Armistice, and the receipt of the dreaded telegram by his parents in Shrewsbury on Armistice day as the rest of the townsfolk celebrated the end of four and a half years of insanity cannot fail to move us. He died a hero, and he died…

Wonderwall

Following on from Kirsty’s prompt History, a prompt based upon a historical event that occurred 413years ago this month but, is remembered in the UK each November 5th: The attempt to blow up parliament when the King was due to attend therefore termed Treason.

The prompt is TREASON however feel free to think of it as betrayal if that makes it easier.
