David Bowie "Five Years" Tokyo Live

For decades, people all around the world have listened to David Bowie's Five Years and/or watched this live in Tokyo video or other video versions of it millions and millions of times. But watching and listening to it today, one can really understand this song's profound significance:

"Pushing thru the market square, so many mothers sighing
News had just come over, we had five years left to cry in
News guy wept and told us, earth was really dying
Cried so much his face was wet, then I knew he was not lying..."
