"When the Wind Blows" is a song from the soundtrack of the film of the same name, performed by David Bowie. It marked the second contribution from Bowie to a film based on a Raymond Briggs book – he contributed a filmed introduction to The Snowman in 1982. Bowie's song was the result of a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Erdal Kızılçay, who would work with Bowie in the future, most notably on The Buddha of Suburbia. The single peaked at UK No. 44, promoted by a video that featured a montage of clips from the film, with Bowie's animated face overlaid. Since then, the song has become something of a rarity, appearing rarely on reissues and best-of compilations. Unlike most instrumental B-sides from the 1980s, the instrumental version of "When the Wind Blows" is not simply a version of the song with vocals dubbed, but a completely different orchestral recording.more »
There's a full time reservation
Made in a bar at the railway station,
And there's a story, a kind of fable,
On a card at the corner table.
On it is a message; been there some time.
It starts of, "The coffee tasted so fine"
It says, "One day, this may find you,
These few words may remind you.
We sat here together just to pass time;
You said how the coffee tasted so fine."
It goes on to say, "I love you
If you should find this I must hear from you."
It gives a number but the name has faded away.
All that is left are just the words, "Maybe someday"
That's the story and the fable;
Never leave alone from a corner table.
Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo.
Doo doo-doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo.
