A Bowie song that means much to you! new  

I am not sure if this has been mentioned before, but i wonder what Bowie song means the most to you, and why?

As an example, Buddha Of Suburbia means the most to me. Every time i hear it, i remember certain periods of me life. In verses, as coincidental as it is, they fit perfectly with what i did. How i feel as well, it is very positive i think.

In reply to:

Living in lies by the railway line
Pushing the hair from my eyes
Elvis is English and climbs the hills
Can't tell the bullshit from the lies
(When i was young, i lived near a rail way line, as i grew older, i grew my hair, i also used to tell a few lies)


C'mon, surely you used to climb hills too? Even in fackin' Landon. Muswell Hill? Notting Hill? Primrose Hill? Benny Hill?

There's a Bowie song for every mood, but some are more dear to me than others for reasons I won't bother to detail. These are "Cat People - Putting Out Fire" (the Singles Collection version not the Let's Dance version), "Glass Spider", "Stranger's When We Meet", and the whole Diamond Dogs album except for "Chant of The Ever Circling..." (that one just grates on my nerves). There's probably 30 or more songs that I really love, but these three are at the top.

Secret, secrets never seen new [re: WoodJackson03]  

Every Bowie song reflects a certain moment of my life but there's just one song that means the world to me:

Modern Love



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

Hallo Spaceboy means a tremendous amount to me in terms of it's lyrics.

Slow Burn always puts me in a sensationally sublime mood.

Everyone says Hi makes me cry.

Cygnet Committee makes me feel regretful.


I make no apologies for being fabulous.

With me its "Can You Hear Me"

That song holds many memories for me, happy and sad.

FIVE YEARS

It's the first Bowie song I really analysed, musically and lyrically.

At the age of eleven!

"omg lol he said queer"

The Bowie song that really means something to me would probably be "Heroes", which I played on my acoustic guitar at my sister's funeral yesterday.

I'll be appearing LIVE in London May 14th. Sure, it's a David Bowie show but you're all coming to see me. More importantly, you're coming to see me in my awesome new pants.

Re: A Bowie song that means much to you! [re: mudley]  

Hey you know mudley

That was also one of the first songs off Ziggy Stardust, that I also analysed, both musically and lyrically.

I guess i was about 10/11 also, i understood pretty almost of it, it still took me another 10 years to understand "Rock and Roll Suicide", that line Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth etc...

Plus the fact i never felt at ease with the line "A cop knelt, kissed the feet of priest and a queer threw up at the sight of that", it did'nt sound right, it was only years later that i understood his use of the derogatory term queer

School being a breeding ground of prejudice's, something that has always made me angry.

Re: A Bowie song that means much to you! [re: WoodJackson03]  

The Bowie song that first lead me to him was "As the World Falls Down", so it had a big impact on me. Then as I grew older and got into the dating world, "Heart's Filthy Lesson" took a leading role. But..."5:15 The Angels Have Gone" brings tears to my eyes...there are too many to choose from. Also many intrumentals have a certain mellow effect on me.
