David Bowie's Famous Last Song Called "Lazarus"
Holly Reyes 1/16/2016
David Bowie gave all his fans one last song to remember him by before his death. Singing "Lazarus" he leaves us all speechless. His final release appeared only days before he died, and as he lies in the hospital bed wrapped in cloths in his music video, he leaves us as if we were with him there to witness his very last moments for a bitter farewell.
Singing "I'll be free just like a bluebird" he describes his soon freedom from his recent battles with cancer. Shaking with arms outstretched to heaven, he feels a hand grasp him tightly and pulling him to where he had been reaching to go. Scenes of him with his bandaged eye and tiny black button eyes appear, yet he gains moments of energy, experiencing wild dancing and movements about the room.
He writes, he thinks back, yet sings of what is to come. A slow, heavy drumbeat pumps through the song like a heartbeat. Finally, he slips his body into a vintage, wooden wardrobe where he shuts the door slowly with his pale hand and vanishes. He leaves us all a haunting goodbye.
