Cuando una obra te deja intranquilo, te provoca rechazo-miedo-amor es que probablemente sea una obra de arte. No lo sé.

Tengo mis dudas cuando oigo el preocupante tema de casi diez minutos de , Blackstar”.

Canta Bowie que no es un gangster, que no es una estrella del pop, que no es una estrella de cine, que no es una estrella limpia.

Es decir, casi reniega de todo lo lo que puede representar. Sin embargo, asegura que es una “estrella-estrella” , una estrella negra, impredicible, alienígena.

En el video encontramos probablemente al major Tom muerto . Es como si el major Tom se hubiera reencarnado en esta “estrella negra” de Bowie.

No sé. Lo que sí sé es que cuando canta “Something happened on the day he died… ” para justificar que es una estrella negra, todo cobra un sentido epíco, porque la melodía es maravillosa.

Pienso sobre todo que las influencias de Scott Walker , en la primera parte del tema, son increíble.s Bowie siempre ha sido el fan numero uno de un genio como Walker. Ahora se ha acercado más a su ídolo.

¿Una obra maestra?.

Repito, no lo sé. Pero lo que si sé es que David Bowie nunca te deja indiferente.

Este es el video del famoso tema.


Esta es la letra del tema:

In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah
In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all
Your eyes

On the day of execution, on the day of execution
Only women kneel and smile, ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, at the centre of it all
Your eyes, your eyes

Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah

In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah
In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all
Your eyes
Ah-ah-ah

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)

How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangster)

I can’t answer why (I’m a blackstar)
Just go with me (I’m not a filmstar)
I’m-a take you home (I’m a blackstar)
Take your passport and shoes (I’m not a popstar)
And your sedatives, boo (I’m a blackstar)
You’re a flash in the pan (I’m not a marvel star)
I’m the great I am (I’m a blackstar)

I’m a blackstar, way up, oh honey, I’ve got game
I see right so white, so open-heart it’s pain
I want eagles in my daydreams, diamonds in my eyes
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a star star, I’m a blackstar)

I can’t answer why (I’m not a gangster)
But I can tell you how (I’m not a flam star)
We were born upside-down (I’m a star star)
Born the wrong way ‘round (I’m not a white star)
(I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangster
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar
I’m not a pornstar, I’m not a wandering star
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)

In the villa of Ormen stands a solitary candle
Ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, your eyes
On the day of execution, only women kneel and smile
Ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, your eyes, your eyes
Ah-ah-ah
