The Art of the Remake, XVIII

Remember the standard:
“If you are going to cover a song, rip it apart a bit and make it your own.”
Changes, by David Bowie:

And a remake by Lewis and Clarke:

I saw this one while perusing Jeff Carter’s excellent blog, Points and Figures, which you should take a look at every day. It particularly struck me today as I am going through some big changes in my life right now. Some good, some bad, but in the end, as my daughter keeps telling me, “everything will be just fine”.

  1. Amazing the things you can get done in a canoe. Nice remake. The Ziggy Stardust thing always made me a bit uncomfortable. Perhaps buckskins will draw a wider audience.

  2. I found an item for PenGun, who has been absent for the discussion for a few days.

    I ws looking or the story of an English officer who, during the 1920s, became a Buddhist priest and walked from India to Burma.

    It seems there are two Major Fletchers who became Buddhist priests.

    The one I had in mind was named Frederick Fletcher and is mentioned in this book.

    Neville Shute wrote a fictional version of him in one of his books.
