David Bowie – Golden Years (Tim Fuchs edit)


I love those mornings when you wake up feeling there’s an inexplicable lightness to the day: it’s the dawning of a new era and you’ve conjured up a fresh palette of rose-tinted hues by which to paint your world. Let this groovy number indulge you in the moment as you seamlessly glide into functionalhuman-being mode; the force is with you and the universe is your oyster.

“In walked luck and you looked in time
Never look back, walk tall, act fine.”

David Bowie‘s classic “Golden Years” exudes timeless brilliance and is a real relic of the past four decades. That being said, this edit by Tim Fuchs = limitless bootie-shaking potentiality. This tune will get you up off that thing and grooving, like a real-life Disco Stu. Inconspicuously bobbing your limbs in tempo is a likely side-effect, which is why I recommend this for anyone and everyone on their morning journey to work.

You may find yourself pelvic thrusting in your mind… and notice a certain ‘je ne sais quois’ in the air. Everything, especially the mundane, is particularly amusing. Falling in love with the nuances of the daily grind, these subtleties are what shape the essence of your narrative. Everywhere there’s a story to be told, unfolding moment by moment as you strut along.

These are your golden years, to be enjoyed here and now. Memories are but fleeting mirages of the past, and as Jack Kerouac said “Sweet life continues in the breeze, in the golden fields.” Coagulating in your consciousness, past experiences further refine your present state of [disco-looping] awareness.

“Ill stick with you baby for a thousand years
Nothing’s gonna touch you in these golden years,
Golden years, gold whop whop whop.”
