I find the ending of Looking For Water really annoying! (Where he kees repeating the phrase.) I don't know if I'd consider this his most annoying lyric, but it definately came to mind first.

The sisters fell back and said "Don't that man look pretty!"

Re: The Bowie Lyrical Questionairre new [re: Adam]  

a) most surreal lyric
"Zane, zane, zane, ouvre le chien"? it's not really surreal in its meaning but not knowing what is behind this, it would sound weird to open a dog.
b) most experimental lyric
"shelly, shelly, hummmmmmm" or whatever it is. but perhaps its rather chanting than experimentation...
c) lyric that best describes Bowie as a person
i'd say "ch-ch-ch-changes" if it wasn't too obvious...
d) most silly lyric
girls.
e) most romantic lyric
letter to hermione.
f) most annoying lyric.
87 and cry? i dunno. perhaps it's just the most annoying song...

"Have you tried... not being a mutant?"

Re: The Bowie Lyrical Questionairre new [re: Adam]  

What about "Be real deranged Salaam before we reel" (from "I'm Deranged")as a surreal lyric? Well, the whole song is quite strange...

Most silly lyric: My little China Girl...

Lyric, that describes Bowie: Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes???? (But that's too uncreative.)

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

One thing kind of touched me today
I looked at you and counted all the times we had laid
Pressing our love through the night
Knowing it's right, knowing it's right

I`ve no-one to talk to, anyway

I'd actually say Warszawa over Subterraneans for most experimental, if they count.

Re: The Bowie Lyrical Questionairre [re: Adam]  

a) most surreal lyric
"Oh by jingo"
-After All. It looks silly written down, but the way it's sung and the effects put on it gives it quite a surreal twist.

c) lyric that best describes Bowie as a person
"I've no defence
I've got to keep my veil on my face

Janine, Janine, you'd like to know me well
But I've got things inside my head
That even I can't face

Janine, Janine, you'd like to crash my walls
But if you take an axe to me
You'll kill another man
Not me at all"
-Janine. Not Changes, surprisingly.

d) most silly lyric
"Lonely-Ha Ha-what does it mean"
-Bang Bang. The rest of the lyrics are pretty crap, too. This is also a candidate for most annoying lyric.

e) most romantic lyric
"We could steal time, just for one day."
-'Heroes.' This is a given.

But then, why should I speak, since I know nothing.

Then it will make you happy to note that 'Bang Bang' is not a Bowie lyric but a cover of an Iggy Pop song. I'm sorry, I get nitpicky when I'm tired.
