It’s 1993 and I’m 31 years old. Looking at the charts I almost gave up on posting a favorite song for this year, the music is so lackluster. There are a lot of okay songs from older acts on the way out and from promising younger artists not fully matured.
I don’t know if this is my favorite for ’93 but I remember liking it. I’ve searched for “Suffer” on YouTube over the past few years with no luck. Just found it now. Hopefully, it won’t be pulled too soon.
The song seems to be about seeing through and closing the door on manipulative spiritual figures who love playing head trips on vulnerable people for money, power, and self-aggrandizement. This could apply to bad apples in any religion or organization.
Watch out, seekers! Don’t forget what Annie Lennox said in 1983.
David Bowie also released a 2CD retrospective, “The Singles” in ’93.
Pretty much all the songs are good. I remember buying it downtown on Yonge Street (in TO) and thinking it was a nice deal. This was just before the internet took off so having all these Bowie tunes in one collection seemed an attractive option.
I’m converting to Christianity in ’93 after dabbling in just about every spiritual path known to mankind. Soon I’m going to immerse myself in Gregorian chants and choral music, still keeping an eye on pop but putting it on the back burner.
’93 was the year I took down all my Hindu, Buddhist and New Age icons and put up Catholic images and symbols in their place. I’ve never really turned back. Although these days I’m not quite so iconoclastic.
I do not believe all paths are the same. But from my experience, they do seem to work together when all parties are sincere and respect proper boundaries.
Most of Earthpages.ca is dedicated to explaining my beliefs on spirituality so I won’t elaborate here.
