Rock n’ Roll Suicide // David Bowie

Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger, then another finger, then cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
Ohhh, you're a rock n' roll suicide...

My theme song, I suppose, after being voted by secret straw poll as the graduate “Most Likely To Be a Rock and Roll Suicide By Our Ten-year Reunion”.

Lovely people I went to school with to have a dead pool for folks when we’re only 18, amiright?

Proved them wrong, obviously. But it still sticks in the craw when I think about it. I’m pretty certain those are not the people I still keep up with on a casual basis today, but it was a secret poll.

One of my favorite Bowie songs from my favorite Bowie album ever.
