The self-reflexivity of the song from the very beginning mean we're looking at the song as being about Bowie writing about himself. So it's very nostalgic.
This is sharply contrasted with the chorus, "Ashes to ashes, funk to funky". Obviously, "ashes to ashes, dust to dust" is part of the Anglican Christian funeral service, and the pun with "funk" means we're attending the funeral of Bowie as a musician, not a person.
It's meant to mean that we're waving goodbye to the "action man" of the start of the song. The most effective way to create a sharp dichotomy between Bowie's pre and post 80s material in one song is to do what was considered the impossible in his old songs.
Lyrics to 'Ass Man (Billy Gunn)' by Wrestling: I'm an ass man Yeah I'm an ass man (Yeah!) I love to love 'em I love to kick 'em I love to shove 'em. My InterpretationSurely this song is about the paradox of having made it and being on top and still feeling like crap and having the same negative self-image and even greater self-doubt as when he was balthalimountainresort.com self-image problem makes the jump to the drug abuse references easy. Think about how optimistic the music and the initial lyrics of Major Tom are. Sure, ours is a dystopian universe 4/5(17). all ass on the pole (all ass aye, all ass aye) Yeah, beat the pot, beat the pot, beat the pot, oh Bad bitches walkin' out with bags at the store (bad).
And what is more impossible than to bring back that eternally lost in space character, Major Tom? Bowie could have just as easily brought Ziggy Stardust back to life, or given the Thin White Duke a genuine soul, but there's another layer in making mention of Major Tom: being from Bowie's first ever hit, 11 years before, Major Tom had not only been lost in the story, but forgotten in time itself by Bowie's audience.
Bowie even mentions this fact in the first line, making sure to ask "do you remember the guy? Now to finally end the first half of his career for good there is only one thing left to do: destroy major Tom for good, so the "impossible" can not be ever done again.
And what better fate for Major Tom to ultimately suffer, than the same that Bowie suffered throughout the 70s himself? And here is where the drugs come in. By presenting Major Tom as a "junkie, strung out on heaven's high, hitting an all time low" note the title of Low in that line, another bit of self-reflexivityBowie also creates an analogue for his old career, as well.
In an almost Dorian Gray-esque way, Major Tom is now suffering the addiction and debilitation while Bowie himself can now start again.
So the way I read it, Bowie tries "wrapping up the seventies" by bringing back his most impossibly lost character, and revealing that the intervening 11 years have treated him in the same way as they have Bowie himself. And finally, by concluding Major Tom's story, Bowie is left renewed, without the drugs, musical, and physical baggage of 11 years of musicianship.
There was an error. Autobiographical song about his previous drug addiction as many have already stated The pinacle of his drug use was during the recording of Station To Station. He didn't even remember writing or recording a few songs off that album. The next album was named Low and he was clean for that one or in the process of getting there The most brilliant and telling line for me is: Strung out in heaven's high Station to Station space theme and he was strung out Hitting an all-time low Low the album where he got clean Just my opinion - and I'm right too - sorry : - I love reading other people's take on songs cuz it can give you new perspectives.
But please people quit posting things like "so, erm, he's saying that Space Oddity was about heroin? Flag jimbob11 on June 24, A beautiful and well written interpretation. Flag toxiccute on June 14, Appers66 Dude, you are amazing. Thank you. Flag weats on January 11, Appers66 I think he was wanting to forget about a darker time in his life when he was taking drugsand he couldn't because Major Tom kept following him, so he decided to put him to rest.
Personally, I love Major Tom, drugs and all. Flag Happypandaaj on January 31, Not necessarily.
"Ashes To Ashes" lyrics. David Bowie Lyrics "Ashes To Ashes" Do you remember a guy that's been In such an early song I've heard a rumour from Ground Control Oh no, don't say it's true They got a message from the Action Man "I'm happy. Hope you're happy, too. I've loved. All I've needed: love. How your waist anorexic and then your ass is colossal Like whoo Drop that ass make it boomerang Take my belt off bitch I'm Pootie Tang Tippy tow tippy tay you gonna get a tip today Fuck that you gonna get some dick today I walk in with my crew and I'm breaking they necks I'm looking all good I'm making her wet They pay me respect they pay me in checks. Jun 28, Ass so fat, all these bitches' pussies is throbbin' Bad bitches, I'm your leader, Phantom by the meter Somebody point me to the best ass eater Tell 'im "Pussy clean" I tell them "Pussy squeaky".
So, in the end, maybe Major Tom was just strung out on the beauty of space and how Earth looks from all the way up there. Makes sense when ya take into account, "I'm hoping to kick but the planet it glowing" All in all, one of my favorite 80s era Bowie tunes, and I am an admitted Bowie junkie.
BigPoppaChidog Probably coke General Comment I feel like this is a victory song for Bowie. He, like Major Tom, had "hit an all-time low". And while Major Tom was not so fortunate, Bowie was able to make it to the other side of addiction.
This song is the funeral for Major Tom, but Bowie is able to be the one singing it.
Ass to ass lyrics
If he'd died young, it was pretty much guaranteed that we'd be hearing endless mournful songs about Major Tom from other artists other artists were already singing about Major Tom, after all. Think of Peter Schilling.
Bowie survived, however, and could end things on his own terms in his own way. So I really love this song. Not just because of the excellent music, but what it meant for Bowie as an artist. Things could have gone in a much, much worse direction for him but they didn't; this song is a reminder of that. It almost makes you proud of him. No Replies Log in to reply. My Interpretation Surely this song is about the paradox of having made it and being on top and still feeling like crap and having the same negative self-image and even greater self-doubt as when he was nothing.
The self-image problem makes the jump to the drug abuse references easy. Think about how optimistic the music and the initial lyrics of Major Tom are. Sure, ours is a dystopian universe - the people who have the stage can't even change the world planet earth is blue and there is nothing I can do or really even save themselves by returning to earth Can you hear me Major Tom once they've made it out of the stratosphere superstardom, that is.
But, then to discover there is no such thing as happiness I am happy, hope you're happy too or love sordid details to follow only the shrieking of nothing our own inner voice which in Bowie's case was pretty low during much of the 70's.
That's how you get "Strung out in heaven's high" that is on top of the world "hitting an all time low" ironic, isn't it, dope addicted and suicidal for all that money and fame.
It is about celebrity culture and isolation. Messing with Major Tom sounds more like forgetting who you really are, and losing all happiness and sense of direction. Becoming overtaken by one's own ego. Flagged degree7 on August 12, My Interpretation Bowie has stated several times that the song is an Edwardian-type nursery rhyme summation of his career to that point.
Bowie says the digger truck was a symbol of advancing violence love machine rumbles through desolation row Location was Beachy Head, an infamous suicide spot, a reference to Major Tom's suicide in Space Oddity Padded Cell, a reference to his brother's time in a Hospital for the Mentally Ill He wears Green Ziggy Stardust boots, again a reference to his past career.
Lyrics "Do you remember a guy that's been in such an early song". Obviously a simple reference to Space Oddity. Kabuki reference, the girls in Kabuki theatre are played by boys.
