Post Script for Bowie

I bought "Black Star" on ITunes. I burnt the disc. And listened to it in its entirety just now. At the end, "La Vie En Rose" played. I looked to see if it was the same CD that "Black Star" was burned to, and it was. Somehow, an accordion instrumental version of the "La Vie En Rose" ended up as the album's eighth song. Obviously, the burn picked up a track from another album that I forget to check off not to burn, but what poetry it was. It brought tears to my eyes. It seemed a fitting mistake to end what was a melancholy week of a life in rose.
