Nature Boy

David Bowie era uno de mis favoritos de todos los tiempos. Admiraba tremendamente su talento, su ambición, y su habilidad para arrojar algo de luz sobre algunos de los aspectos más oscuros de la existencia humana. Al igual que muchos otros, estoy de alguna manera llorando su pérdida. Tras su tránsito en Enero, he estado leyendo sobre muchas de sus historias, y escuchado muchas de sus canciones. Hasta hoy no había recordado esta maravillosa versión de Nature Boy, (que tan elegantemente solía cantar Nat King Cole ), igualmente gozosa y dramática, que grabó para la película Moulin Rouge en 2001. Hay otras grandes versiones de esta canción de Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, y The Real Group.

David Bowie was an all time favourite of mine. I admired tremendously his talent, his ambition, and his ability to turn the light on to some of the darkest sides of human existence. Just like so very many others, I am somehow in grief for his loss. After his passing in January, I have been going through many of his stories, and listened to many of his songs. I didn’t until today though recall this wonderful version of Nature Boy, the son by Eden Ahbez from 1947  (which Nat King Cole so gracefully used to sing), equally joyous and dramatic, that he recorded for the film Moulin Rouge in 2001. There are also great versions of this song by Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, and The Real Group.

Nature Boy was originally published on Tell Me Nature
