Was always aware of his singles and had a greatest hits CD. Bought Hunky Dory and Ziggy 3 weeks ago to play in the car over easter as we were visiting family in wales.
f*** me. completely blown away by the songs.
Even my youngest who is only 5 was was singing along to Kooks and Moonage Daydream ( "I'm an alligatorrrr.......!!!") by the time we got back. My 8 year old has become obsessed with Starman and Rebel Rebel.
gonna take my time and work through the rest of his stuff.

Feels like I've just stumbled across a huge musical secret.

Some guy on Reddit just digitized his dad's Super8 film of Bowie at Boston Garden in 1976

I'm one of the most cynical, annoyingly opinioned t***s going, but I fail to see anything wrong with that, like. The worst thing about this whole story is the f***ing Metro article itself.
Typical f***ing nonsense heading. A story about a 'Twitter backlash'. No one in their right mind cares about twitter anymore and even less about who ever decides to waste their time on it or caring about what's on it. A typical "article" about a f***ing tweet from a nothing paper/site who fail each and every day to report news and pretty much just publish individual personal blog entries by morons as stories. I'm maybe unfairly judging, but that lass who's written that isn't going to amount to much of a journalist. Glossy mag features writer, maybe.
And all the tweets "slamming" the PR stunt... How is a simple statement about a period of time passing since an event a PR stunt.

Cretins.

The left of Twitter is generally political correctness gone mad for the most part like. It's to socialism, what Tumblr Feminists are to Feminism, discrediting and undermining.

Blackstar and Lazarus are the highlights.  Album is really varied in style.

:lol: It seems more 90's now than it did back then, somehow.

I'm Afraid of Americans is still the track off that album but this one is growing on me. 90's Bowie is a massive blindspot, admittedly.

Bought that single IIRC.

Little Wonder - I'll go dig it out. I struggled with him for a long time (probably from Absolute Beginners), but I think that was the first song I heard from that album (the first single in the UK) and the first new song of his I actually enjoyed for some time :lol:.

Love this song. I was only a teenager in the mid 90s so it could easily have passed me by without noticing, but looking back, Bowie seemed to have done the 90s better than the rest of the 90s did, without much acknowledgement. Little Wonder is like him sitting back and gong "Oh so that's what this era is about? Okay I'll give it a shot", and then encapsulating everyone in 4 minutes :lol:

Wait, forgot about Buddha of Suburbia.
