Day 352 | Here Comes the Night

This song is about someone realizing his happiness is about to end because his girlfriend has chosen someone else.  The night that is about to come is a post-break up depression.  That’s what the song is actually about.  I’m posting it here because, taken just for its title and refrain (which is repeated over and over), the night that is coming is Bowie’s death.  Bowie grunts and and howls from the beginning of this song.  The lyrics about his girl with another guy seem almost perfunctory- this is a cover, so he needed to get through those lyrics, but what he really wanted to do is shout “here comes the night” as if he’s warning about something that worries him.  Album: Pin Ups
