Re: clarification new [re: The_Omen]  

Well I think, generally speaking, giving head to a guy is referred to as "sucking" or "blowing" as the case may be, and giving head to a woman is more commonly referred to as "eating out" or "licking carpet" for the more vulgar types.

Anyways, look at it however you want. That's the beauty of interpretation.

Re: sell, sell, sell new [re: CoolCanasta]  

I first thought that The Bewley Brothers was gay, but I've read that The Bewley Brothers is about Bowie's brother Terry who was schizophrenic. I think the line "I was stone and he was wax/so he could scream and still relax...unbelievable" is about the fact that Bowie was the one that couldn't show any emotions and had to be the strong one for Terry. Terry was wax because he changed so much because of his illness. Maybe I'm looking too much into this song, but it's great. I don't think people realize how deep that song is if they see it as a song about his brother.

Re: clarification new [re: Starlite]  

I read somewhere that Lady Stardust was about Marc Bolan. David saw one of his shows and apparently had a crush on him. To emphasize the fact that it was about Marc, David would have his picture projected on the wall when he would sing it in concert. I always thought that song was great because it really did remind me of Marc. Gotta love Marc!

Yeah, the song was originally for Marc Bolan. You can find that version on the CD The Forgotten Songs of David Bowie.

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

I never really thought of John, I'm Only Dancing or Changes as being gay songs. I always thought that John, I'm Only Dancing was David talking to a guy named John about how he's confused as to why only dancing with the girl turns him on so much. Changes seems to be David telling the world about his plans about his rock career. He's looking into the "stream of warm impermanance" and wanting to change his situation. He's warning the older generation about his new brand of rock that will change so many people. He knows that he will have a following of some sort and is kind of predicting that. It's like he's saying "watch out, here I come and you can't stop me and the sexual and musical revolution that I will help in starting."

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

Yeah, that's always what I thought Changes was about too. I've never thought that it could be considered a "gay song."
