Don’t you wonder sometimes
‘Bout sound and vision?

Blue, blue, electric blue
That’s the colour of my room
Where I will live
Blue, blue
Pale blinds drawn all day
Nothing to do, nothing to say
Blue, blue
I will sit right down
Waiting for the gift of sound and vision
And I will sing
Waiting for the gift of sound and vision
Drifting into my solitude
Over my head

Don’t you wonder sometimes
‘Bout sound and vision?

“Sound and Vision” is the most immediate reward on Low, more familiar in its funk stutter-steps and sultry crooning.

In an interview, Bowie went in depth on the meaning behind the song:
“That was an ultimate retreat song; actually, the first thing that I wrote with Brian in mind when we were working at the Chateau. It was just the idea of getting out of America, that depressing era I was going through. I was going through dreadful times. It was wanting to be put in a little cold room with omnipotent blue on the walls and blinds on the windows.”
