Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell.

so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell

David Bowie - How Does The Grass Grow [HD] (by IngeniousPocky)

As overheard yesterday in the shower:

"Dear Mr. Bowie,

Thank you so much for writing a song that we can sing together with our cats.” (Track 11, “How Does the Grass Grow” from “The Next Day”)
