Re: Subterraneans new [re: vintagerock24]  

As far as I know it's not supposed to mean anything. I'm not even sure if they are real words but only invented "language".

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

Re: Subterraneans new [re: vintagerock24]  

maybe it is concerned with stories about the hollow earth? if it is a left-over from 1975 about what he showed interest then?

Bowie has mentioned recently that this track was dediacted to the people of the East Berlin.

Listen. Read. Think. Communicate.

Re: Subterraneans new [re: vintagerock24]  

The song is dedicated to East Berliners, and the words are either the result of a cut-up or just words that Bowie thought sounded good but not necessarily meant anything. I read somewhere that Subterraneans, like Warsawa, uses words for their SOUND rather than for their meaning--something Bowie said he also did on the Earthling album a lot (recall the beginning of Searching for Satellites, with that string of seemingly unconnected words, which works very beautifully).

Confused new [re: Cucumber]  

Is it really Shelly? I've always thought Bowie sings "Shirley"...

"A man is the less likely to become great the more he is dominated by reason. Few can achieve greatness - and none in art - if they are not dominated by illusion..."
