When The Clock Strikes Thirteen, Elvis is English [re: ]  

Around this time 62 years ago, London was experiencing the worst winter in living history and on this day of January 8, when Elvis Presley celebrated his twelfth birthday, a future English legend was born in a house in suburban London.



Interestingly, on the day that Elvis turned 12, the clock at the local (Lambeth) Town Hall less than half a mile from where Bowie was born never actually struck 12 at midnight!



According to The Complete David Bowie, the freezing conditions caused the town clock to strike no less than THIRTEEN times.....



....a plot for a sci fi right there.

Some 39 years later, Bowie would star in Labyrinth which of course made the very point about a 13 hour clock and things not always being what they seem....



....and of course a song titled THIRTEEN O'CLOCK.
