Happy 60th Birthday, David!

There may be a few of you out there who don’t know, David Bowie was my first husband. This is before he dumped me for Iman, and before I dumped him for Ted, and before I realized just how OLD he is, just a few years younger than my parents. So David, in case you’re considering dumping that supermodel, it’s OVER for us. We can never be together again. I’m with Ted now, and there’s just no going back. I know, trying to squash our love is like “putting out a fire with gasoline”, but really…I’m sorry to break your heart like that, but sometimes, it’s best to be blunt, so you no longer harbor any hope, right?

But…that doesn’t mean we didn’t have good times, does it? It doesn’t mean we can’t step back in time, and remember our early love…I mean, how can we forget the love of Rock and Roll Suicide? (Click the link to hear the song…) I know you’re speaking straight to my heart when you say…

Oh no love! you’re not alone
You’re watching yourself but you’re too unfair
You got your head all tangled up but if I could only make you care
Oh no love! you’re not alone
No matter what or who you’ve been
No matter when or where you’ve seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I’ve had my share, I’ll help you with the pain
You’re not alone

I know baby, I know. Even though I never got into the drug culture with you, because, you know, I was 5 or something, I still know. I’m not alone.

Then there was Oh You Pretty Things, Geez, I loved that song, and I just bought it off of iTunes for you people, but it’s an MP4, and I can’t remember how to convert it, and dang it all…here’s some lyrics, if you like…

Look at your children
See their faces in golden rays
Don’t kid yourself they belong to you
They’re the start of a coming race
The earth is a bitch
We’ve finished our news
Homo Sapiens have outgrown their use
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they’re here to stay

Then there’s another old favorite, John, I’m Only Dancing. I know, you’re bi, and maybe you loved John. But I also know, I turned you on, and we had to dance, right baby?

I loved you through the time of China Girl, Let’s Dance, and Modern Love, when you needed to make some money, and take control of your own destiny. I even loved Blue Jean, and Never Let Me Down. But I kind of felt that they never reached the level of the early songs, the songs that made me love you. How could anyone NOT love you, after Space Oddity? They’d have to be heartless, which, baby, I’m not.

So, David, Happy Birthday. Even though we’re no longer married, even in my twisted imagination, I still very much like the Beat of Your Drum.

Love,

J
