Recording information by edgarGOLD

"Absolute Beginners" is not only a song that is great to Dance to it was also the theme tune to the film of the same name (an adaptation of the book Absolute Beginners), composed and performed by David Bowie.

Bowie was good friends with the film's director, Julien Temple (who had worked with him in 1984 on the Jazzin' for Blue Jean short film), and landed both the supporting role of Vendice Partners, and the deal to record the theme tune.

The sessions, at Abbey Road Studios, were set up in a novel way, with a group of session musicians all receiving a card to work at the studio with "Mr X", who turned out to be Bowie. The sessions were completed rapidly, but the song was delayed due to the problems with completing the film
Well Tony??? Thank you so much, as this Journey has enabled me to not only sing my Favourite song which is also by my Favourite Artist but to sing the song which I believe is the greatest Love song of all time!!! I Know that some of you have heard these words before but I just had to share them with you all again along with my ultimate Love Song............ the meaning of this songs words totally blow me away and have meant so much to me over the years!! Please let me explain...............Firstly

As long as you're still smiling
There's nothing more I need
I absolutely love you

In My Mind Poetic Perfection........................And

"If my love is your love,
we re certain to succeed"

One of the most real and powerful and genuine love lyrics possible. Simple, yet so powerful. What it says is that my love is so great that nothing will knock it, nothing, its unconditional. and if you feel that too? if you feel love that strongly like I do? then we cannot fail.......... And finally the last lines................. for these lines remind me of truth that has been forgotten for a long long time:

There's no reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
It's absolutely true

Powerful Powerful Stuff

I Hope You Enjoy!!

Wise men speak because they have something to say, fools because they have to say something. PLATO

Loving this Bowie tune...and Yes...he was something as a person...and as an entertainer...a benevolent genius. What a tribute you have done...and in so doing, honor yourself for your feelings about love and life, as well. Lovely. Hope to see you again on another journey....have enjoyed your songs and thoughts along the way.
