Jake Bugg: Man on the Moon

If you haven’t guessed by now I’m a HUGE Jake Bugg fan.

He flows talent with music that is faultless on the record and live.

After a stressful month and half which included:

  • 3,000 essay dissertation proposal
  • 2,000 word essay
  • Newsweek – in uni every night for the past week until after nine in the evening and arriving at eight in the morning to film, record and publish nine radio broadcasts, 15 minute podcast, ten minute news bulletin, 28 page weekly newspaper and running blog and twitter accounts
  • 500 review of the assessed newsweek, with references
  • Three law exams
  • Job interviews
  • New job stresses

Jake’s new song, ‘Man on the Moon’, is a slow, melodic tune available on Space Ducks. The 2:37 wonder is a folk infused relaxing number that ties in with Daniel Johnston’s first comic book release (22 April) of the same name.

All that hard work deserves a cup of tea, some relaxing music and a day of doing nothing.

*The album is available on iTunes*

Last night the moon watched the sea,
As he looked so sad,
His reflection told me the story,
Why he didn’t speak a sound,
And all to do is weak/ we come down.

I tried to ask him what he needs,
Moon light paints my face,
And when he turned and looked at me,
Still who never speaks a sound,
And all to do is weak/ we come down.

And when the Earth comes to an end,
And all is lost,
The moon who looses his only friend,
Still who never speaks a sound,
And all to do is weak/ we come down.

No more words,
Lost in space,
It’s on his face,
Man on the moon.
