DAVID BOWIE – AMERICA [LIVE, 2001]

Μόνο ένας Bowie θα μπορούσε να κάνει αυτό εδώ με ένα φτηνό αρμονιάκι.
Από το κονσέρτο για τη Νέα Υόρκη, 20 Οκτωβρίου του 2001 – μετά την πτώση των δίδυμων πύργων – με συμμετοχή πολλών ηθοποιών και μουσικών.
Ο DB έπαιξε/διασκεύασε το τραγούδι του
Paul Simon, μαζί με το “Heroes”…

Only Bowie could do this using a cheap organ.
From the Concert For New York City, October 20, 2001 – after the September 11 attacks – with the participation of many actors and musicians.
DB played / covered
Paul Simon’s song, along with “Heroes”…

      I ‘m not a fan of the traditional “rock’n’roll concert” concept, but I find this performance exceptionally touching. Thank you!

    I hear what you mean about the organ.
    It’s DB’s emotional delivery via his strong voice that woos & woes us. The organ seems almost merely a metronome.

      I may be wrong but I think it is very deliberate. Both the sound and the style of chord playing is childlike and innocent. And that is exactly the point of the Paul Simon song really. An innocence in looking to America as the land of dreams.

        I certainly couldn’t agree more. It’s Bowie level brilliance!
