BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
“Time Will Crawl” is the second track on David Bowie’s album Never Let Me Down and was issued as the second single from the album. The single was a minor hit, breaking into the top 10 charts in the US.
The song is generally considered the best song from an otherwise poorly received album, and in 2008 Bowie named the track as one of his favorites of his entire career.
The song was written about the pollution and destruction of the planet by industry (Bowie has cited hearing of the Chernobyl disaster in April 1986 as the genesis of the lyric). In an 1987 interview, Bowie said the song “deals with the idea that someone in one’s own community could be the one responsible for blowing up the world.” Bowie also stated at the time that it was his favorite song from the album, and later put the song on his list of all-time favorites by including a newly remixed version of the song (the “MM Remix”) on his iSelect album.
The b-sdie “Girls” is a non album track written by David Bowie and Erdal Kizilcay. The song was also recorded by Tina Turner for her album Break Every Rule.
