DAVID BOWIE

VA - The Many Faces Of David Bowie (A Journey Through The Inner World Of David Bowie) [2016] (3 x CD's)


David Bowie was an icon. A legend. A musical chameleon. Some even say that he was a genius. Like Lennon and Elvis before him, when Bowie passed away on January 10th, 2016, it was the end of an era. The rock 'n' roll landscape that he helped create is vastly different now that he is gone. However, it is time to celebrate his life and the music he left behind. On this special three CD set, his legacy is celebrated in performances by his former band mates, collaborators and even the man himself. This release features songs written or covered by Bowie played by many of the artists he called friends: Iggy Pop, Tony Visconti, Ian Hunter, Mick Ronson, Reeves Gabrels, Mike Garson, Angie Bowie, Woody Woodmansey and many others. There are even some tracks performed by his former band The Spiders From Mars. To top it all off, David himself is featured as guest vocalist or producer on a handful of these recordings. So, raise a toast to the Starman and enjoy this triple disc dosage of David! (Amazon)

  1. Hmm, these won't go to the zippy site. Had no problem with other zippy files.

  2. CD 2, trach 14 is called Jacques Brel's original version of 'Le moribond', which could be translated as 'The Dying Person'.

    1. Do you mean that they put le Moribond instead of la Mort, both from Jacques Brel ?
      Because when I hear Bowie, it's clearly la Mort that was covered.
      I don't find any cover of Le Moribond By Bowie.

    2. Jacques Brel has never written nor recorded a song called 'La mort'. It is called 'Le moribond'. Why give the song a wrong name? La mort is simply the translation of 'The Death'.
      But the song is called 'Le moribond'.

    3. Hi peerke,

      You may be right but it was included and stated as such on this Bowie compilation as La Mort (My Death). A translation of Brel’s “La Mort” (1959)

      The song is also referenced all over the internet as a song written by Jaques Brel.
      Composer: Jacques Brel, Lyricist: Jacques Brel,Vocals: Jacques Brel, Conductor: François Rauber

      Covered by David Bowie, Marc Almond & Scott Walker.

    1. Seems zypeezjare has problems serving files at the moment, we can expect this to get to normal anytime soon. I hope. Several other links also not functional including ones that worked yesterday, day before...

  4. Bowie has covered La mort and Amsterdam, but not not Le moribond

  5. Hi All,
    Firstly thanks to all for their comments. You feedback is appreciated . @dom, I believe you are correct.
    RE Zippy I also found problems with the link just now so I will re-post a new link so.

    To me the track in question is clearly La Mort.

    Discogs specifies the track As La Mort.
    https://www.discogs.com/Various-The-Many-Faces-Of-David-Bowie-A-Journey-Through-The-Inner-World-Of-David-Bowie/release/8128127

    These are the Lyrics as stated in the song La Mort.
    La mort m'attend comme une vieille fille
    Au rendez-vous de la faucille
    Pour mieux cueillir le temps qui passe
    La mort m'attend comme une princesse
    A l'enterrement de ma jeunesse
    Pour mieux pleurer le temps qui passe
    La mort m'attend comme Carabosse
    A l'incendie de nos noces
    Pour mieux rire du temps qui passe
    Mais qu'y a-t-il derrière la porte
    Et qui m'attend déjà
    Ange ou démon qu'importe
    Au devant de la porte il y a toi
    La mort attend sous l'oreiller
    Que j'oublie de me réveiller
    Pour mieux glacer le temps qui passe
    La mort attend que mes amis
    Me viennent voir en pleine nuit
    Pour mieux se dire que le temps passe
    La mort m'attend dans tes mains claires
    Qui devront fermer mes paupières
    Pour mieux quitter le temps qui passe
    Mais qu'y a-t-il derrière la porte
    Et qui m'attend déjà
    Ange ou démon qu'importe
    Au devant de la porte il y a toi
    La mort m'attend aux dernières feuilles
    De l'arbre qui fera mon cercueil
    Pour mieux clouer le temps qui passe
    La mort m'attend dans les lilas
    Qu'un fossoyeur lancera sur moi
    Pour mieux fleurir le temps qui passe
    La mort m'attend dans un grand lit
    Tendu aux toiles de l'oubli
    Pour mieux fermer le temps qui passe
    Mais qu'y a-t-il derrière la porte
    Et qui m'attend déjà
    Ange ou démon qu'importe
    Au devant de la porte il y a toi

    To my ears the Lyrics are the same .

    Cheers.

  9. Hi, I owe you guys an apology. I completely messed up. David Bowie indeed covered 'La mort', a song Jacques Brel recorded in 1959.
    I somehow was thinking about that awful 'Seasons in the Sun' which is based on 'Le moribond', from 1961.
    Sorry, forget everything I said here about this.
    I won't do it again.
