My Favorite Bowie Love Song  

As the world falls down is one of my favorite david bowie songs, not to metion, my favorite love song by him. i have read that so many of you here have such a disliking for the labyrinth, and all related subjects, but i still wanted to write about it.

So..yeah my best friend and i call this our song because when we were talking about it, he said he felt the same way about me. And until then i had never really thought of the words.

So, David's character would do anything for this girl. He'd paint her mountians of gold, and spin her valentine evenings, put his love between the stars, and stuff like that.

So, what a short point for this long of a message? haha sorry. I just, never thought about it being such a good love song until I...well...thought about it. So this is for anyone else who never really THOUGHT about it.

Sorry if im waisting space, because this is kinda an obvious thing. But hey, I love this song.^^

To add a shred of intellect new [re: Stardusted_Lady]  

Well, I think this is more of a disturbing "love" song than a traditional love song. Keep in mind that in the movie it appears during the part where Jareth is trying to remove Sarah from her present and her meaning. Basically, he's trying to convince her that his love should make her forget about reality.

This song is more like "Every Breath You Take" - a song about possession and control rather than love. The world is falling down, and all the object of the song is supposed to care about are the "valentine evenings" and "the path between the stars." The narrator is trying to distract the object - to make her forget about the things she should care about, and instead, to devote herself to him.

Re: My Favorite Bowie Love Song new [re: Stardusted_Lady]  

I love this song!!!!!

It's a real tearjerker but I just love it!

And an addition for Stardusted_Lady:
I actually also like Labyrinth and I also listen to the soundtrack sometimes.
Not everybody here dislikes it but of course there are stereotype "Laby-Girls" (i.d.Teens) and the "older" like to make fun of them. Of course this is not a movie for the great musician David Bowie! (please note the irony)

Just because I believe don't mean I don't think as well

Re: To add a shred of intellect new [re: WildWind]  

This is a song about a man who takes away a young girl's virginity.Innocence is a pale jewel,but it also makes one miserable and incomplete:

There's such a sad love deep in your eyes
A kind of pale jewel open and closed wiithin your eyes
I'll place the sky within your eyes,etc

The young girl,mesmerized by the cliches,opens up the gates of heaven, lets the man in and

As the pain sweeps through,makes no sense for you,every thrill has gone,it wasn't too much fun at all.

Women rarely enjoy their first time.(unless they're rotten to the core),yet they always fall in love with their first man(again,unless they're rotten to the core)

The repetition of the word falling symbolizes the end of her carefree days,the world of her childhood falls down,her purity will soon be replaced by a new kind of appetite-an appetite for savage sex.As he goes deeper,she falls deeper.


It's the place where my prediction from the sixties finally came true:In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes. I'm bored with that line. I never use it anymore. My new line is, In fifteen minutes everybody will be famous.

T.J.'s favourite love songs by DB new [re: Stardusted_Lady]  

In no particular order.

~ Rock 'n' Roll With Me
~ Wild Is The Wind
~ Can You Hear Me
~ Don't Let Me Down & Down
~ Absolute Beginners
~ Five Years
~ The Prettiest Star
~ Drive In Saturday
~ Sweet Thing
~ "Heroes"
~ As The World Falls Down

I'm not really sure if you can name all of them love songs, but I feel very romantic while listening to them and I think they would be a perfect soundtrack for a rendez-vous, so...

Time and again I tell myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me

Can You Hear Me, Wild Is The Wind and Absolute Beginners are my three favourite Bowie Love Songs. I dont include Heroes in the category.

As The World Falls Down is kind of good too, a desperate sad love song.

He doesnt do too many love songs, a fact which we should probably be grateful for, but when he does they tend to be more painful and mournful than say..... Barry Manilow.

My favourite Love Song by Bowie is Wild is the Wind, followed closely by Absolute Beginners, Never Let Me Down and As the World Falls Down. I'm a big Laby fan, always will be at heart. I write stories which usually are fantasy so watching that always gets the wheels turning

I don´t know why but Bowie´s love songs don´t work for me. Sure, some of them are amazing songs but they don´t give me "the feeling". Maybe he´s too distant character and he seems cold and unemotional most of the time, just the way I want him to be...

Nothing works for me better than Queen´s You take my breath away and Roxy Music´s More than this.

En réponse à:

As said Nicole Kidman, "centuries of evolution for that"! I can't believe we can still read that kind of bullshit in 2003 (not your excellent interpretation, only THAT) you should evolve man, it's just a physical question: it hurts very bad for some girls, and just a little for others who can appreciate their 1st act. And it also depends of the man, if he's brutal or sweet with the girl. Period. One of my friends had her 1st sexual experience with a man twice her age, not only she quite enjoyed it, but she didn't even really love him. And then a few months later she met another guy her age who's her boyfriend for 3 years now. So you see, she's not become a slut.

My favorite Bowie's love songs: "Heroes" (which is what if not a love song? the most moving ever written for me), It's gonna be me (not released I know, but still wonderful), Absolute beginners. I don't add Wild Is The Wind to the list because it is not a Bowie song. And sorry, but As the world falls down is a bit too saccharine (did I spell it right?) to me

I wish the city itself was as romantic as the song... Believe or not, but Warsaw is a horrible place. But let's see what David said about both the song and the city in an interview he gave a polish music magazine "Tylko Rock" (Polish for "Only Rock", now known as "Teraz Rock", Polish for "Now Rock" ):

I tried to show in Warszawa all those feelings that accompanies peoeple when they desire freedom, they feel its smell when they are lying on grass but they can't reach it, they can't take it... I really fell in love with this polish song I got aware of in Poland, which is not a surprise when you listen to my vocals. I sang this tune being sure that it expresses the soul of polish nation. What I wanted was while listening to Warszawa you could see a fantastic shadow this city have. A shadow, which would become its reality one day. I think it's one of the most wonderful parts of my collaboration with Brian Eno. It's an awesome piece of music..

So i'm hell bent on meeting david some day. ~*sigh*~ i can see it now. i'm strolling through central park one day and he's out with lexie. "good afternoon mr. jones" a conversation on art and writing styles would follow . . . some fantasy of mine

Well I could'nt agree with you more Max, it IS time we had a new Bowie ballad love song.

We spoke of what his next album might sound like, or rather what we hoped it might sound like ?

Im hoping he will include a song of reflection ( not of his heart problem ) but of the time we live in, or a time we lived in ? we'll see...

A lot of the songs listed so far, Heroes and ATWFD included, make me feel depressed. Not in a suicide way. Kind of in a longing , wanting way. Not exactly a love song for me. In fact, most of the songs make me feel that way. Thats why I love them.
