    but my first david bowie albums i got were birthday gifts from my brother (Low and Hunky Dory). "A New Career in a New Town" is my absolute favorite song. something about eno and bowie makes for instant happiness, for me anyway.

    dream: for bowie to headline coachella (he's amazing live. i was fortunate enough to repay my brother for his birthday with tickets to see bowie)......and my bloody valentine to open for him.

    I totally don't mind being told that I am wrong about this, but in my adult years I have come to take the lyrics to China Girl as an ode to heroin (China White).

    Oh oh oh ohoo little china girl
    Oh oh oh ohoo little china girl

    I could escape this feeling, with my china girl
    I feel a wreck without my, little china girl
    I hear her heart beating, loud as thunder
    Saw the stars crashing

    Im a mess without my, little china girl
    Wake up mornings wheres my, little china girl
    I hear hearts beating, loud as thunder
    I saw they stars crashing down

    I feel an tragic like an marlon brando
    When I look at my china girl
    I could pretend that nothing really meant too much
    When I look at my china girl

    I stumble into town just like a sacred cow
    Visions of swastikas in my head
    Plans for everyone
    Its in the white of my eyes

    My little china girl
    You shouldnt mess with me
    Ill ruin everything you are
    Ill give you television
    Ill give you eyes of blue
    Ill give you men who want to rule the world

    And when I get excited
    My little china girl says
    Oh baby just you shut your mouth
    She says ... sh
    She says
    She says


    Yes, I know the video shows a Chinese woman, but what was going to be shown? Pictures of folks snorting heroin? Knowing that Iggy had some hand in this song and he was hooked on heroin throughout the mid 70's helped me formulate this idea.

    Just sayin'....

    it could be though that Iggy wrote it about heroin and then David added that bit so that it wasn't so obvious. to make it murkier. to make it artsier. too bad it's such a hamfisted verse.

    That's actually my favorite verse. But I am a hamfist. Or hamfister. Whichever you prefer.

    Also, I used to think it was "man-o-wars" when I was a kid. Which would have been even hammier.

    This verse is possibly one of the absolute creepiest in all of music, by the way.

    That's immediately what I thought of too. That, and how terrible The Simpsons has become.

    It's incredible to think about, but he really was just like any other artist starting out and hoping to make a career.

    "I hope one day to get to America" - It's fun to imagine how young and excited and naive he is at this point given how he became a music legend. But all music legends start out as just another guy/

    This is an amazing letter. I'm surprised he did not offer her the presidency of his American fan club.

    So Simon Cowell wants David Bowie to guest on the next series of his X-Factor show. Isn't that lovely?
