“Life on Mars?”
My No. 1 dream song of this so far speculative Bonnaroo performance. Can you imagine if everyone in attendance knew all the words and jumped in to sing “Saaaaailors fighting in the dance hall” at the exact same time? Oh man. OH MAN.
Also, guys? Also? How about that we live in a time that there is probably proof that there was life on Mars? What if David Bowie makes an announcement right before performing this song like, “We have some special guests tonight,” and NASA scientists appear onscreen to confirm it first, and then we all cheer and cry and then the song starts?
My imagination is why I’m almost always disappointed by real life.
I will personally track down and incapacitate that Buster Poindexter-lookin’ fun. motherfucker if he even thinks about it. Acceptable Freddies:
- Reanimated Freddie (that would go over even better than the NASA stuff)
- Hologram Freddie
- Me, after I fall down and bump my head and magically gain singing abilities
- Kate Middleton
This is the unlikeliest of all unlikely scenarios so far, but if it does happen, it will probably solve homelessness once and for all.
Can you imagine the fireworks display that could accompany “Heroes?” I can, and I’m already choked up. Butterflies appear from nowhere. Somewhere, deep on the knoll, a child is born. The baby crowd surfs up to stage, protected by butterfly wings and happiness, and is blessed by David Bowie. We vote that child our leader, and the first Decree from Awesome Baby is that everyone gets home safely. What a cool baby.
