Beautiful Mind is a collection of short stories by Bowie.
The stories range from the mundane to the magical, but the one thing that’s always struck me about the books is Bowie’s mastery of language.
In each of his stories, Bowie uses words that, while not technically “singing”, are used to create something of a melody.
It’s not just the use of words in these stories, either.
The words he uses are so poetic that you have to wonder if Bowie’s songs were all written by a single artist.
The words are a combination of “lack”, “love”, “belonging”, “life”, and “love”.
In the stories, you’ll hear Bowie using words like “labor” (the same word that you hear in the opening of The Beatles song, I Feel Love) to refer to the pain and loneliness that exist in his life.
“The pain I felt when I was a boy was unbearable,” Bowie wrote in one of the stories.
“It was so unbearable that I thought I was going to die.
I couldn’t live without the pain.
But it didn’t matter.
It was what I had been told.
I had to endure it.
It made me strong.
The pain was unbearable and it was the only thing that made me feel alive.”
In the story The Queen and the Peacock, written in 1960, Bowie writes that he felt like he was “blessed to be alive”.
The title of the story is a reference to a line from the song Queen and Peacocks: “I am blessed to be on the side of the birds/The birds are blessed to me”.
“I was blessed by my love,” Bowie said in the book, according to a BBC News article.
“I felt that love for the people I loved.
I was blessed to feel that love.”
Bowie’s lyrics were used to write The Beatles’ debut album, The Next Day, which was released on December 18, 1970.
The lyrics of The Next Night are a mixture of love songs and pop songs.
In The Next Side of the Moon, a love song from 1968, Bowie wrote: “I have a beautiful friend.
She is a lover of peace and a friend of the world.
She speaks in beautiful English, she has beautiful hair and eyes, she looks lovely.”
In Beautiful Mind, he writes: “We all have something beautiful inside of us that we never knew existed.”
The songs were written to help Bowie find a way to let go of his pain and isolation, according the BBC article.
It all came to a head on November 21, 1970, when Bowie was on tour in Germany when he collapsed in the middle of the tour.
He had been drinking heavily and had been diagnosed with a severe case of pneumonia, according a BBC article from the time.
He was taken to hospital where he died the following day.
The story that he told that night about being able to see his girlfriend, Kate Moss, was a reference from the book to his previous relationship with Moss.
“You’re looking at the picture of Kate Moss with the caption ‘she is beautiful’,” Bowie told the radio station.
“She was beautiful, she was beautiful in so many ways.
I said to her: ‘You know what?
I can see that she is beautiful.
And you can be happy.’
That was a very beautiful night, but I think I just couldn’t get out of bed.”
Bowie was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1975 for his contribution to human rights.
He was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.
