Damn, I wondered what Polow da Don was up to. Ripping off Vindaloo. Shit is catchy as fuck. Amazing.

Note how it turns into Heart Of Glass for 12 seconds towards the end.

LYRICS:

Cowardice
Are you serious?
Apologies for freedom
I can’t handle this
When freedom rings
Answer the call!
On your feet
Stand up tall!
Freedom’s on our shoulders
U.S.A.!
Enemies of freedom face the music
C’mon boys take them down
President Donald Trump knows how to make America great
Deal from strength or get crushed every time!
Over here
U.S.A.!
Over there
U.S.A.!
Freedom and liberty everywhere
Oh say can you see it’s not easy
But we have to stand up tall and answer freedom’s call
U.S.A.
U.S.A.!
U.S.A.
U.S.A.!
With the land of the free and the home of the brave U.S.A.
U.S.A.!
The stars and stripes are flying let’s celebrate our freedom
Inspire proudly freedom to the world
Ameritude
American pride
It’s attitude, it’s who we are, stand up tall
We’re the red white and blue, fiercely free that’s who
Our colors don’t run no siree
Over here
U.S.A.!
Over there
U.S.A.!
Freedom and liberty everywhere
U.S.A.!
Oh say can you see it’s not so easy
But we have to stand up tall and answer freedom’s call

David Bowie Hollywood Boulevard Star

You’re Sleepy Now.

Thank you David Bowie. You were always such a huge part of my life. And always it shall be thus. You are immortal now.

I don’t have regrets. But I sometimes think back to that night in Los Angles in 2005, when I was backstage at a Nine Inch Nails concert, chatting with a security guard who used to be friends with Biggie Smalls. Someone tapped me on the shoulder of my white floor length rabbit fur coat and said, “that’s an amazing jacket mate!”

“Cheers,” I said, distractedly, without really looking, and continued listening to the security guard’s tales of Biggie Back in The Day. Presently my A&R dude Jeff ran over to me, perspiring somewhat. “You know that was only fucking David Bowie you just brushed off!” he barked, exasperatedly.

In another universe, I registered the compliment, and its giver, and we entered an illuminating conversation about UK Garage or Grant Morrison comics or crap speed or something, and smoked some cigarettes and became excellent chums and made a whole bunch of amazing songs, and today I am crying tears of sorrow for a friend I lost.

In this universe I watched a vigil begin around the Bowie Star on Hollywood Boulevard out my window at 2am this morning, and woke to find it covered in purple glitter and flowers, swarming with TV cameras and weeping fans. Today I have been watching the Where Are We Now video with Hercules, the song that soundtracked the first weeks of his life, on repeat all day and night in our little flat above a kebab shop in Hackney Wick. “Is that Mummy and you, Dad?” he asked pointing at the screen.

“Pretty much,” I said.

Hallo Spaceboy. Bye bye love.
