    Default I Want to Talk About David Bowie

    Please rank and tell me your favorites and impressions. You're doing something good.

    Here are the choices (don't tell me if I left something off, this is personal)

    Space Oddity
    The Man Who Sold the World
    Hunky Dory
    The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
    Diamond Dogs
    Young Americans
    Low
    Heroes
    Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)

    Right now I'm at this:

    5. The Man Who Sold the World
    4. Space Oddity
    3. Diamond Dogs
    2. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
    1. Hunky Dory

    I possess, but haven't gotten yet to deciding where to place Heroes and Scary Monsters. I don't have Low, I thought I did but I don't. Young Americans has 3 songs I like and too much cheesy saxophone.

    Please discuss and contribute to my enrichment.

    ps I know you probably already talked about Bowie in that albums thread but I'm vain and lazy. So.

    Young Americans was very good for its time. For what it was. I think it might have been more influential in Europe than it was here. Anyways, I might move it up in that list.

    I'll get back to you on this.

    Your top 5 are probably pretty close, but why Diamond Dogs at #3? What is it about that one that does it for you?

    Ninth. But I sort of have misgivings about putting "Low" that high. You're right, this is harder than it looks.

    What about David Bowie from Labyrinth? That's another incarnation.

    Ziggy Stardust is my favorite though.

    I'm not going to compare, but it's a frickin' riot.

    David Bowie kept appearing to Brett in dreams, but always from a different era. He would introduce himself by saying "Hey Brett, it's me, 1985 David Bowie from the film Labyrinth."

    They had a Daft Punk gag a few weeks ago too.

    Flight Of The Conchords is to Coachella as Tenacious D is to Ozzfest.

    Andrew you should be on AIM right now.

    Also I probably have that ep of FOTC on the DVR. I may work up the urge to get up and watch it. But right now I am listening to John Dowland.

    It'll make it easier for me to mock you. Or something like that.


    The first Bowie album I got was Earthling. Yeah, I'm a ridiculous person. I enjoyed it quite a bit. "I'm Afraid of Americans" was a personal favorite. Then I got Outside which was so much better it wasn't even funny. Then I got Black Tie White Noise which I realize isn't very good overall but "Jump They Say" is a fantastic track and there are some other good ones. Then Heathen came out and I got that and it was ehh.

    WAIT!!! NO!! It was ...hours. I never got Heathen.

    At any rate I was aware of old Bowie and really liked the songs "Space Oddity" and "Heroes" for example but his was a vast and confusing catalog and I never quite jumped in.

    Then I got convinced that I would love the Berlin albums and got Low and everything changed. Cause damn. And then came the random stab into The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and yeah, yummy.

    There is more than one Bowie. There is only one Bowie, but there is more than one of him too.

    Meg should qualify her question with a list of her own. She's right, but she should still qualify it.
