A) Most Surreal:

Don't set me free
I'm as helpless as can be
Just my librium and me
And my EST makes three

B)Most Experimental

the weather's grim
ice on the cages
me i'm robin hood and i puff on my cigarette
panthers are steaming, stalking, screaming

C) Bowie as a person

I say, "Don't ask me,
I don't know any hallways"
But they move in numbers
And they've got me in a corner

D) Most silly

Uncle Arthur - follows Batman!

E) Most Romantic

There's such a sad love
Deep in your eyes
A kind of pale jewel
Opened and closed
Within your eyes
I'll place the sky
Within your eyes

F) Most Annoying

the whole of 'Black Country Rock'



...The sheer wit of the witless...

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

All the madmen? Not quite sure how you can see that as a surreal line? It's perfectly straightforward within the context of the song... And Black Country Rock is Bowie's hilarious attempt at being T-Rex. Very funny, methinks, not so much annoying. Anyway - enough complaining:

Here are my choices for this interesting take on the "name your-****-Bowie-song-game":

A: Surreal:

Bleed Like A Craze, Dad - most notably the lines:
Astral, Kestrel,/ Fed into the featherfall/ Fed him on a pencil carving/ You will never get - which make absolutely no sense to me, really...

B: Experimental:

African Night Flight, all of it really but especially:
African nightmare one-time Mormon
More men fall in Hullabaloo men
I slide to the nearest bar
Undermine chairman I went too far
Bent on a windfall rent a sony
Wonder how the dollar went down
Gotta get a word to Elizabeth's father
Hey no, he wished me well


C: The Man:

Teenage Wildlife, funnily enough. I've always thougth this to be the most autobiographical song in the entire back catalog - even mentions his name... A perfect view into the psyke of a man hounded by the likes of ms. Numan and Steve Strange down the hallways of the record industry...

D: Silliness:

An early song, admittedly, but who knew mr. T was such a fan?
Well, I pity the fool
I said I pity the fool
You know I pity the fool


E: Romance:

No romance like the doomed, starcrossed kind! We Are The Dead, indeed:
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

Now I'm hoping some one will care
Living on the breath of a hope to be shared
Trusting on the sons of our love
That someone will care, someone will care

But now
We're today's scrambled creatures, locked in tomorrow's double feature
Heaven's on the pillow, its silence competes with hell


F: So annoying!

Just all of Tonight really. Reggae, Tina Turner - oh do go away...

(G: Kinky:)

Well... Subtle it aint
Sweet head, give you sweet head
(spoken: while ya down there)

See my eyes of blocked emotion, see my tremble, see my fall
Traumatics thick and fast, your faith in me can last
Besides I'm known to lay you, one and all


A ritual in search of a philosophy

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

a) most surreal lyric

But we can't stop trying 'til we break up our minds
Til the sun drips blood on the seedy young knights
Who press you on the ground while shaking in fright

b) most experimental lyric

TVC15, Beauty And The Beast

c) lyric that best describes Bowie as a person

Every chance,
every chance that I take
I take it on the road
Those kilometres and the red lights
I was always looking left and right
Oh, but I'm always crashing
in the same car

d) most silly lyric

Ziggy Stardust

e) most romantic lyric

We'll buy some drugs and watch a band
Then jump in the river holding hands

f) most annoying lyric.

The Jean Jenie
