Re: clarification new [re: Starlite]  

I think that is a very interesting interpretation of Changes and it sounds very convincing to me. I still don't know about Lady Stardust, though it is somewhat gay by nature as it was in large part about Marc Bolan, who was very ambiguous himself.

Re: sell, sell, sell new [re: dar]  

i agree, i never thought, "boys keep swinging" is a gay song.
it is rather a bit self-ironic: bowie, who used to wear dresses and make-up and anounced himself publicly bisexual, now tells us
"when you're a boy, you can wear a uniform,
other boys check you out - (don*t think that's meant sexually)
you get a girl
these are your favorite things
when you're a boy"
isn't it just supposed to be funny? that's at least how the song (not only the lyrics) sound to me

In reply to:

Are you a boy or a girl simply means the times where kids could be mistaken because of their appearance.


I've always looked at this as a reference to 1984 (the book). The girl in the book fits the description very much, since she's not allowed to wear make-up or feminine clothes.

We'll watch nothing at all dance around.

John I'm Only Dancing HAS to be, boys keep swinging suggests it too, the width of a circle is OBVIOUS.

Re: Bowie's Gay Songs new [re: Adam]  

I think it's fairly obvious that if you are gay, then you will find more lyrics that include what YOU would call, gay overtones. If you're straight, you won't see nearly as many, and in fact, will interpret them as straight. When i'm listening to Bowie, i am not thinking to myself, 'that may be gay'.

velvet goldmine can't be gay can it? it's very sexual, but i reckon aimed at a woman.

Re: clarification new [re: hangontoyourself]  

On the contrary, Velvet Goldmine sounds extremely gay to me. "Suck you dry"? C'mon.

I'm a DUMBASS!
