“Shock video” anti-Catholic crud. Video (but not Page) downdinged.

Good to see what David Bowie is up to. As usual with him I like the song, not the video. A protest piece designed to shock and anger. The sadist sex angle is a little more shocking in the aftermath of the Cleveland kidnaps.

The lyrics:

“Look into my eyes,” he tells her.
“I’m gonna say goodbye,” he says yeah
“Do not cry,” she begs of him goodbye yeah
All that day she thinks of his love, yeah

They whip him through the streets and alleys there
The gormless and the baying crowd right there
They can’t get enough of that doomsday song
They can’t get enough of it all

Listen

Ignoring the pain of their particular diseases
They chase him through the alleys, chase him down the steps
They haul him through the mud and they chant for his death
And drag him to the feet of the purple headed priest

First they give you everything that you want
Then they take back everything that you have
They live upon their feet and they die upon their knees
They can work with satan while they dress like the saints
They know God exists for the devil told them so
They scream my name aloud down into the well below

Here I am
Not quite dying
My body left to rot in a hollow tree
Its branches throwing shadows
On the gallows for me
And the next day
And the next
And another day

Here I am
Not quite dying
My body left to rot in a hollow tree
Its branches throwing shadows
On the gallows for me
And the next day
And the next
And another day

Here I am
Not quite dying
My body left to rot in a hollow tree
Its branches throwing shadows
On the gallows for me
And the next day
And the next
And another day

I like this video and song a lot. It’s a trip. That’s what I expect from an artist like Bowie - something that challenges your assumptions and makes you deal with things you’d rather not look at.

Good on Bowie for still pushing it.

It feels and sounds like a tribute to Byrne, it revives a lot of things for me.

re: #1 Dark_Falcon

Utter nonsense.
Your kind of whinging about Catholic victimhood reminds me of right wingers being oh-so upset with the Obama administration because the Bush administration’s report on terrorism coming from the right suggested that terror could come from the right.

“designed to shock and anger” my ass.
I just love how so many people consider themselves psychics.

re: #2 Political Atheist

I think it’s designed to shock, but I don’t think its designed to anger. I think they realized some people might get angry, and considered it worth it.
