In reply to:

The idea of asking a girl to wear her mother's dress before you shag her is certainly kind of kinky, no?


The concept gets much more interesting if the person who is sung to is a boy.
I remember someone bringing it up a long time ago, it might have been Emil?

I support sex with imaginary friends.

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

a) most surreal lyric

"We scanned the skies with rainbow eyes and saw machines of every shape and size
We talked with tall Venusians passing through
And Peter tried to climb aboard but the Captain shook his head
And away they soared
Climbing through the ivory vibrant cloud
Someone passed some bliss among the crowd
And We walked back to the road, unchained

'The Sun Machine is Coming Down, and We're Gonna Have a Party...' "
- Memory of a Free Festival (I find a lot of the imagery in his earlier works to be quite surreal. This just seems so outerworldy and beautiful to me. Reminds me of my childhood.)

b) most experimental lyric

"The return of the Thin White Duke
Throwing darts in lovers' eyes
Here are we, one magical moment, such is the stuff
From where dreams are woven
Bending sound, dredging the ocean, lost in my circle
Here am I, flashing no colour
Tall in this room overlooking the ocean

Here are we, one magical movement from Kether to Malkuth *
There are you, you drive like a demon from station to station
The return of the Thin White Duke, throwing darts in lovers' eyes
The return of the Thin White Duke, throwing darts in lovers' eyes
The return of the Thin White Duke, making sure white stains..."
- Station to Station (Actually, the whole song gets my vote, but this part especially. The first time I heard it, it just jumped out at me as something fantastic.)


c) lyric that best describes Bowie as a person

Well, considering that I don't know the man as a person, I don't think I can answer that.

d) most silly lyric

This is an easy one:

"Ha ha ha
Hee hee hee
I'm the laughing gonme
And you can't catch me"

e) most romantic lyric

"I love you in the morning sun, I love you in my dreams
I love the sound of making love, the feeling of your skin
The corner of your eyes, I long forevermore
I never want to say goodnight, miracle goodnight"
-Miracle Goodnight (So corny, but so adorable.)

f) most annoying lyric.

"Abracadoo, I lose you..."
- Something in the Air *cringe*

Bridget

"There is a crack,
A crack in everything
That's how the light gets in..."

Yeah, kinky indeed.

I do love that intro to Let Me Sleep Beside You, where young David explains he's not played the song in public before because his mother thought the lyrics "dirty" (am I the ONLY person who gets a bit hot when a man with an English accent says the word "dirty"?). I agree that the song was not really meant to be kinky, but I like to inject kink into things!

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

e)most romantic lyric
"We jump in a river holding hands"

Not just the words but also the music that follows -this is what true love sounds and feels like.

h)most disturbing lyric

"Marry-Ann was only 10, full of life and oh so gay, I was the wicked man who took her life away"


"The time is sublime and the moon is so right"

"Dirty"

There. Have your nipples gone all hard?

Sorry, mate, I couldn't exactly hear the ACCENT there, so . . . no, no hard nipples.

Re: The Bowie Lyrical Questionairre [re: deathofglitter]  

Very interesting answers!
However, I'm not sure how "experimental" the song "Station to Station" would be.
Yes, he's certainly experimenting something, but perhaps nothing really so new.

Or perhaps most people just "bypassed" the meaning of the lyrics. Do people actually notice he's talking about the sephiroth of the Kaballah in that song?

He does mention all the sephiroth, or stations, if you will...

Re: The Bowie Lyrical Questionairre [re: Adam]  

My answers would be:
a) most surreal lyric
I'd be stuck between "The Supermen" and "Seven years in Tibet".

b) most experimental lyric
Everything Bowie wrote was somewhat experimental, although he did seem to know precisely where he's treading on every song. If I have to pick one song, though, I think it would be "Baal's Hymn"

c) lyric that best describes Bowie as a person
I don't think anyone knows what Bowie is like as a person.
He probably doesn't know it himself.
I wouldn't even go for Changes, as he's more like 'nothing has changed, everything has changed', which would force me to choose the song "Heathen", if I have to pick one.

d) most silly lyric
I'd say it's "Chilly Down". But since it was a children's piece, I guess it's expected to be so.

e) most romantic lyric
That would be either "Within you" or "Survive". I can't pick one.

f) most annoying lyric.
"Let's dance". Or maybe it's just an annoying song.

g) Most sexual lyric
"Cracked actor".

h) Most perverted lyric (in a bad way)
"Segue: Baby Grace (a horrid cassette)". Or perhaps it's simply the most disturbing one. It's brilliantly perverted. Still brilliant, anyway.

Re: The Bowie Lyrical Questionairre [re: Adam]  

a) most surreal lyric - Beware the savege jaw
b) most experimental lyric -
I'm an alligator, I'm a mama-papa coming for you
c) lyric that best describes Bowie as a person - Gotta make way for the Homo Superior
d) most silly lyric -
My girl calls my name "Hi Dave/Drop in, see you around, come back/If you're this way again"
e) most romantic lyric -
As long as you're still smiling/There's nothing more I need
f) most annoying lyric - Drive you crazy, really lazy, eye rollin', funky strollin', ball playin,' hip swayin', trouble makin', booty shakin', tripping, passing, jumping, bouncing, drivin', stylin', creeping, pouncing, shoutin', screamin,' double dealin', rockin', rollin', and a reelin'
With the mackin' sex appealin'.
Can you dig our groovy feelin'?

I'll be seeing YOU in Philadelphia, Boston, Kansas City, St. Louis, Moline, Wantagh, and Holmdel. So dress sharp.
