“Moon” is a song by Icelandic artist Björk. It is the first track on her album Biophilia (2011) and was released as the fourth and final single before the release of the album. Each song in the album features a theme related to nature. In “Moon”, Björk explores the lunar cycles and the effect they have on Earth.
In the wake of David Bowie’s death, his last album, “Blackstar”, is his swan song, an enigmatic conclusion to a career punctuated by otherworldly alter-egos and esoteric symbolism. We’ll look at the meaning of “Blackstar” in the context of David Bowie’s career.
Very few artists can boast the longevity of David Bowie in the music industry, as his career spanned over five decades and produced 28 albums. Throughout the decades, Bowie migrated from one musical genre to another, and even from one persona to another, but a constant remained: He was surrounded by an otherworldly aura.
Through his work, Bowie turned himself into a musical ‘ascended master’, a Gnostic Christ-like figure who achieved a high level of illumination and who sought to communicate a cryptic message to humanity. While many of Bowie’s eccentricities could be attributed to drugs and rock and roll, one cannot paint a complete picture of this artist without mentioning his most enduring obsession: Western occultism.

The fact that Heart of a Dog is about her dearly departed rat terrier Lolabelle might surprise some – although her late husband Lou Reed does have the last word on the album, which ranges from incredible revelations about her childhood, to the chill of the modern surveillance state, to the mystical depths of the Tibetan Book of the Dead.
