Full circle new [re: EJSunday]  

Ah, but that's where my German friends are wrong, I have been through some insane phases (some say I still am going through them), and I have to admit, I listened to TMWSTW quite a lot then. But, then again, in that phase I turned to power albums like Earthling and craziness to be found on Beauty and the Beast, Joe the Lion (made of irrrooooooooonaaah!!!!) and It's No Game.

But seriously, looking at my list, I think I can conclude I am a music fan more than a lyrics fan. I don't say that Bowie hasn't written outstanding lyrics, but I really go for his music. And there's a lot of music-without-lyrics on the Low and "Heroes" albums, isn't there? Same goes for Earthling, where sometimes I feel Bowie didn't want to write at all. He threw shampoo and TVs at us for Christ's sake.

On the other hand. Becausing of Bowie's limited lyrical contributions of those albums, the things he does say and sing, are all the more touching...

And I've never heard Lodger in its entirety.

The first 19 are are money in my opinion. Low and Diamond Dogs are engaged in a never ending battle for supremacy and, I don't wanna be startin' rumors or nothin', but I overheard Ziggy talkin' some shit about how Scary Monsters is liable to get beat if it keeps mouthin' off. I mean, that's just what I heard. And yesterday I saw Space Oddity in the checkout line at Home Depot with a two by four an' one nail. I said hello, but it just mumbled something about "remodelling" and started counting out the exact change.
