Best Rock Song


As much respect as I have for David Bowie’s career and talent, the best rock song was not Blackstar.  I realize why he won the rock Grammys, but let’s be real, the album released hours before he died wasn’t that great.

This, though, this is good.  And stuck in regular rotation for me.

I’m feeling the way that I’m feeling myself
Fuck everyone else
Gotta remember that nobody’s better than anyone else, here
(Do you need some time to think it over?)
Look what they do to you; look what they do to me
Must be joking if you think that either one is free, here

Get up off your knees, girl
Stand face to face with your God
And find out what you are
(Hello, my name is human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello, my name is human)

I’m ready for love, and I’m ready for war
But I’m ready for more
I know that nobody’s ever been this fucking ready before, hey
(Do you need some time to think it over?)
So figure it out, or don’t figure it out
I figured it out
The bigger the river (the bigger the river), the bigger the drought (the bigger the drought)

Get up off your knees, boy
Stand face to face with your God
And find out what you are
(Hello, my name is human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello, my name is human)

Fire world[?] I love you
Fire world[?]

I’m up off my knees, girl
I’m face to face with myself
And I know who I am
(Hello, my name is human)
And I stole the power from the sun
I’m more than just a man
(No longer disillusioned)

But, more so, this song.  I wake up with it in my head.
