First Post – Cruise Me


Apparently Mihai is a really persuasive guy, so here i am finally writing my first post on this blog. If he got me started, i fear this might be the beginning of many posts from me from now on, so i can only hope you bear with me :).

I am absolutely sure that everybody who ends up on this blog one way or another knows things about David Bowie, and has listened to him at least once. Without being a fan, i’ve been listening to many of his songs, but yesterday i particularly fell for one of them. Since i enjoy watching movies just as much as i enjoy music in general, when i discover a movie whose soundtrack is really well chosen, and seems almost vital for the intensity of some scenes, i get really enthusiastic. That’s the case with David Lynch’s “Lost highway”. The movie begins and ends with David Bowie singing ”I’m deranged”, while the images suggest a moving car on a highway. ”I’m Deranged” is a song written by David Bowie and Brian Eno in 1995 for the album Outside. And not only does the song suit the movie perfectly, but it’s also very appropriate as a car-track, as far as i am concerned. Which i’ve experienced last night, as hopefully suggested by this pic i took.

So, that’s about it for the first time. I’m curious about what you think about the track. And, Mihai, i promise next time it will be less about movies and more about the music ;).
