With David Bowie’s passing, I thought it only right to dedicate this Tubes post to him.
I remember the days my dad visited our family in Puerto Rico. My strongest memory of this time was when he danced to rock music on his headphones. Cassette; not CD. He’d shimmy up and down our patio listening to songs I don’t remember, except one.
At the top of his lungs he let out a chorus of “Young Americans” while trying to get me (a 4 year old) to loosen up. I laughed at my dad and joined in as he placed the tiny speakers over my ears. Now at the age of 32, I appreciate this memory more than I ever realized.
Thanks for the good times with my dad, Mr. Bowie. RIP
