fripodding and changing: “changes” by david bowie


Last week I said goodbye to a handful of my friends who are moving away to start the next book in their lives. And when it comes to anyone making a big move, it’s a ripple effect for them and the people in their lives. A change. Whether you are moving or staying put, change is inevitable. You can’t avoid it, you can’t deny it, you can’t resist it. Change will come sooner or later if it hasn’t already. For the record, I’m writing a poem about this, as I stated earlier this week I’ve been working on new poetry.

While there are still many songs out there about change, today I’m going with “Changes” by David Bowie which is about cheddar cheese. I jest… However, the changes described in his song may or may not relate to me and my friends… a few lines here and there due… but I just like the song and in a sense, this is a special request from and shout out to one of dearest friends that I call my cousin who is also leaving, Felicia.

A few years ago she wrote about this song as she felt she was going through life changes of her own as she was growing up. Whatever she wrote and wherever it is is anyone’s guess, but it stuck with me. And anytime I hear this song, as confusing as the lyrics are to me and as weird of a guy David Bowie was (he seems to have mellowed out now), I think of her and accepting that change is inevitable. And in the long run, change can be a very good thing. So once again, cheers to those starting a new life, or a new book, as I call it.

  1. There is a quote from this song in the opening scenes of “The Breakfast Club,” which is how I was first introduced to it. Man, I love David Bowie. He’s a brilliant artist.
