Watch David Bowie Perform ‘Oh! You Pretty Things’ In Special 1972 Performance [HD Video]

first_imgFrom the Best of Bowie DVD, this video was recorded on February 8, 1972 for The Old Grey Whistle Test on BBC, though it wasn’t broadcasted until over ten years later. The song was written by David Bowie in 1971 for the album Hunky Dory and features simple piano playing with powerful lyrics that question the dedication of present society.Ten years into his career, Bowie was entering his Ziggy Stardust stage and influencing popular culture to join his trends of anti-traditionalism. “Oh! You Pretty Things” invokes concepts of the ever-evolving races of humanity, providing images of strangers joining to better understand the state of society, with refrain lyrics like “You gotta make way for the Homo Superior” and ongoing urges to “wake up” and think about “the world to come.”Watch the uplifting performance below:Tedeschi Trucks Band included the Bowie song as a bonus track on their most recent album Let Me Get By. Watch a live version below:last_img read more

AUDIO: Delta Queens Coach Praises NWFL Board, Sets Sights On NWPL Title

first_imgAudio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume. Delta Queens coach Clifford Chukwuma has hailed the Nigeria Women Football League board led by Aisha Falode, saying that the Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) has improved a lot this season.The regular season – unlike in the past – ran smoothly without any walk over and the media interest in the league also increased to a large extent.And only last week Wednesday (16 August), the first ever NWPL Super Four Championships draw was conducted in a ceremony that was attended by the President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Melvin Pinnick.“I must tell you it’s been encouraging. There’s a lot of improvement. (As for) refereeing I have never got any course to complain, so we are really happy the way things are going,” Chukwuma stated at the NWPL Super 4 draw ceremony in Lagos.Delta Queens are one of four teams that will clash in Benin City, Edo State for the season-ending Super Four tournament which has been scheduled for 11-16 September.For a team that was in the fifth position in Group B by the end of the first round, it was really surprising to see them finish the regular season as Group leaders – overtaking Nasarawa Amazons in the process. However, it was thanks to their improved showing which saw them remain unbeaten in the second round.Nonetheless, they now have Bayelsa Queens, Rivers Angels and Nasarawa Amazons to wrestle for the title.“There is no intimidation. The four teams are good enough. We are four good teams, the margin between the four teams is not wide, so I think we are good enough to play among them, we are good enough to win the league,” he asserts.
