“Dancing Out In Space”

 

Today’s lyrics are track number ten from The Next Day, Dancing Out In Space.

As you’ve no doubt noticed by now, we’ve illustrated each set of words with vaguely connected images from the upcoming David Bowie is Exhibition at The V&A

Today is a detail from the 1979 jumpsuit designed by Willie Brown with a graphic pattern inspired by Le Corbusier.

The outfit was worn by Bowie for his 'future nostalgic' performance of Space Oddity in December 1979 on NBC's Dick Clark’s Salute to the Seventies.

Stills from the performance were used for various picture sleeve releases for Alabama Song/Space Oddity in February 1980.

 

Dancing Out In Space
 
Cutting through the water
Hands upon the ghost
To the city of solid iron
Through the kingdom of the ghost
Send your friend away now
Let him sail back home tonight
 
Something like religion
Dancing face to face
Something like a drowning
Dancing out in space
 
No-one here can see you
Dancing face to face
No-one here can beat you
Dancing out in space
 
Silent as Georges Rodenbach
Mist and silhouette
Girl, you move like water
You’ve got stars upon your head
You’ve got my name and number
You’ve got to take the floor
 
Something like religion
Dancing face to face
Something like a drowning
Dancing out in space
 
No-one here can see you
Dancing face to face
No-one here can beat you
Dancing out in space
 
Dancing face to face
Dancing out in space
 
Dancing face to face
Dancing out in space
 
Dancing face to face
Dancing out in space
