Yesterday we played Oh You Pretty Thing from David Bowie and, from there, Ren Zelen heads east for today's #NotBaconBits...
As always for #NotBaconBits, once you've listened to today's choice, we're looking for your suggestions for tomorrow's track.
Join in by tweeting us @albiemediaAM with the #NotBaconBits hashtag or adding your suggestions in the comments of our #NotBaconBits Facebook posts - remember the link can be as simple or contrived as you want, in any music genre (it doesn't have to be classical or pop) and you can link to anything about the song - the title, the artist, words in the song, something about the video ... anything as long as you can justify it. If we pick your suggestion for the link, you'll get the credit in that day's article and shout outs on our social networking streams.
Here's Ren's link for today: "David Bowie also collaborated with Brian Eno, who called Robert Fripp to play on Bowie's 'Heroes' album. When wanting to reform King Crimson, Fripp asked David Sylvian to join as vocalist. Sylvian declined, but went on to collaborate with Fripp on many occasions as he did with the great Riuichi Sakamoto, including vocals to the soundtrack to 'Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence' which starred....David Bowie! Full circle!" [and extra points for taking the scenic route - Ed]
Here's the main theme, Forbidden Colours by David Sylvian & Ryuichi Sakamoto
