Do They Know It’s Christmas? (Band Aid, 1984)

Do They Know It’s Christmas?
It’s Christmastime, there’s no need to be afraid
At Christmastime, we let in light and we banish shade

And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime

But say a prayer, Pray for the other ones
At Christmastime it’s hard, but when you’re having fun

There’s a world outside your window
And it’s a world of dread and fear

Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it’s them instead of you

And there won’t be snow in Africa this Christmastime
The greatest gift they’ll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it’s Christmastime at all?

Here’s to you
Raise a glass for everyone
Spare a thought this yuletide for the deprived
If the table was turned would you survive

Here’s to them
Underneath that burning sun
You ain’t gotta feel guilt just selfless
Give a little help to the helpless
Do they know it’s Christmastime at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmastime again

Ziggy Stardust (interprétée par Bauhaus)

Ziggy Stardust
Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Wierd and Gilly,
And The Spiders from Mars.
He played it left hand, but made it too far,
Became the special man,
Then we were Ziggy’s Band.

Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan, he could lick ’em by smiling
He could leave ’em to hang
Here came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan.

So where were the spiders while the fly tried to break our balls?
Just the beer light to guide us.
So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were Voodoo
The kids was just crass,
He was the naz
With God given ass
He took it all too far
But boy could he play guitar.

Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man
I had to break up the band

Ziggy played guitar

The Magnificent Void

(Musique : Steve Roach/images : Josselin Jegu)

Poésie de l’espace.
De la lumière.
Du son.
Du mouvement.
Poésie pure.

Steve Roach, The Magnificent Void.
Jamais le néant n’aura été si impérial, si lumineux, si éloquent. Jamais n’aura-t-il été si magnifique.

Cette vidéo de Josselin Jegu était tout simplement conçue pour la lune funambule. La voici donc, pour une seconde fois.
