The song was originally released on his album Tonight (1984) and later included on the greatest hits compilation Best of Bowie (1993). It was written by David Bowie and his frequent collaborator, pianist Brian Eno.
Bowie’s other song with a similar title is a duet with Tina Turner called “I’d Rather Be High (Rough Mix),” part of the soundtrack for the movie “The Buddha of Suburbia” that was released in 1993. The Tina Turner song is an earlier version of what later became the “I Want to Live in a World Without Heroes.”

How the Song Utters Emotion
The song “I Don’t Want to Live in a World Without You” is about the pain of loss. The singer feels like he can’t live in a world without his love, and he doesn’t want to do so. He can’t get over losing her. This song was written by David Bowie and Brian Eno during the period that Bowie was recovering from cocaine dependency and had just broken up with his partner of two years, Iman Abdulmajid (aka “Mickie”) Bowie. Bowie had been completely dependent on cocaine while they were together, and though he never attempted to take the drug again after she left him, he was very unhappy. The song is an expression of his discontent with his current life situation.
The song was written in late 1980 as part of the album Scary Monsters, which was released in late 1980. The singer tells his love that even though they broke up, he doesn’t want to live in a world without her. He says that it’s been a rough year since she left him. He says he “slowly mended” and tried to forget her, but couldn’t do it. This shows how much he misses her and how hard he is trying to get over her and move on with his life.
The song is a slow ballad with a very melancholy mood. There are several different instruments and styles used throughout the song.
There are three distinct moods in the song, which show the singer’s changing emotions in relation to his former love:
What the Song Means for Us All
This song means that when we have strong feelings for someone, it is painful to lose them if we are unlucky enough for the relationship to end. Even though the singer is feeling horrible about losing the love of his life, he does not wish to be in a world without her, and he doesn’t want to go on living if she is gone. He wants her back, but his sorrow prevents him from getting her back. This song reflects a desire to have someone stay with us forever, even if the relationship is not the best. Some people would say that this is a song about the singer’s desire to find a lasting love and build a family with his one true love.
A song about desperation for the sake of wanting to be with someone who means the most to you. This song is full of pain and longing, but it also serves as an expression of hope. The singer very much wants to be with his one true love forever, but knows that if they break up, he will go on living completely alone without her. This song shows us what it is like to be desperate for the love of an individual who is gone and makes us think about how painful it would be to lose someone we love. This song about losing someone who means the most to you, following them no matter what. The singer is desperate for his one true love. He realizes that if they break up, he will still go on living as if they were together. According to criticism, “no matter what” at the end of this song may be about committing yourself to someone in a way that cannot be broken no matter what.

Web of Change is a project designed by Daniel Miller and Robert E. Rice that uses the voices of teenagers to frame the discussion of global change.
With Web of Change, teens’ views are presented side-by-side with 20 experts’ views. This form of co-creation allows for a more focused effort on what teens think is important to them.
The hope is that this technique will enable the voices of young people to be heard and will help spark informed discussion on global change issues like climate change and biodiversity loss. Targeting the teen audience allows different groups to use Web of Change in their own unique ways.
Whoever works with teens to make a difference must be ready and willing to listen and do what is necessary to hear the voice of a teenager.
