My Music Monday

I'm back on an '80s kick, but not the pop portion I'd normally do - though I have been tossing around a few ideas for future entries.

I'm going with a soundtrack selection from a movie I have never seen, but a song I've always been drawn to - "This is not America" from David Bowie and Pat Metheny.

Honestly, I was a never a huge fan of the Pat Metheny Group either, but I love the title of their album, As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls.  The album art was great too.

Still, I was really like(d) "This is not America" - though it's hard to go wrong with Bowie.

...and while I didn't see the movie, the main character has been in the news as of late regarding Edward Snowden.  As he was in federal prison for a quarter century for providing secrets to the Soviet Union. He's been a resource of what Snowden will now be dealing with in Russia.

But the song resides on my iPod and iPhone, so it comes through rotation on a fairly regular basis.

Released in 1987 (?) it still meets my '80s vibe. Just not synths and one-hit wonders.
