Mensday: Rockangel Michael

glam rock, Mensday, mick ronson, picture spam


I feel my spirit fly, only after dark
I kiss the world goodbye, only after dark
Nights with the city lights, only after dark

Run like the wonder way, only after dark

Won’t you disappear into midnight again
Why don’t you come, why won’t you come

Why won’t you fly, fly, fly with me
Sweet elusive fate will be our company

Ring out the vamp in me, only after dark
Moon sinful as can be, only after dark
It’s wrong to feel so free, only after dark
Only you do it to me, only after dark

Won’t you disappear into midnight again
Why don’t you come, why won’t you come
Why won’t you fly, fly, fly with me
Sweet elusive fate will be our company

Only After Dark by Mick Ronson

  1. A legend – what a star and an incredible player (and arranger). Have you heard his pre-Bowie debut work on Michael Chapman's Fully Qualified Survivor? It is the template for the early 70s Bowie-tone in all sorts of ways..Grab a listen on a sound-a-likes podcast

  2. I love Mick Ronson so much! It was seeing him with Bowie singing Starman on Top of the Pops when I was a kid that did it!When my friend was being treated for terminal cancer, she stayed in the same clinic as him and said he was the loveliest man she'd ever met. xxx
