Midnight in the Village Seeger lights the candles From Bitter End to Gaslight Baez leaves the stage Ochs takes notes When the black girl and guitar Burn together hot in rage You’ve got what it takes You say too much Oh you will set the world babe You will set the world on fire
267. (YOU WILL) SET THE WORLD ON FIRE - Album: The Next Day, 2013
The best thing about this is neither the Elvis impersonation or that it’s the newest recording of David Bowie speaking, it’s the insanely funny fact that you can hear the soft “plop, plop, plopplop” of the Mac towards the end which regulates the volume of the background song (and the click at the beginning which starts it).
This man does records for a living. He could’ve just… edited it in. And, you know, make a fade out. Probably would’ve been a lot easier to time, too. But no.
Bless David Bowie, honestly, and bless you. Have a happy, happy holiday time.
