I never lost control



Many happy returns to that marvel of smoky vocals and classy soul the diminutive Lulu - (gulp) 65 years old today!

Suffice to say, I have blogged about the lady many times before so, without further ado, let us wallow in the gorgeousness of her fantabulosa collaboration with David Bowie - The Man Who Sold The World...



We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend
Which came as some surprise; I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone, a long long time ago

Oh no, not me
I never lost control
You're face to face
With The Man Who Sold The World

I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home
I searched for form and land, for years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazely stare at all the millions here
We must have died alone, a long long time ago

Who knows? not me
We never lost control
You're face to face
With the Man who Sold the World


Lulu Kennedy-Cairns, OBE (born Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie, 3rd November 1948)
