The three most mindblowing moments on BOB DVD?  

Bowie has always been one of the most astounding visual artists around. However, there are moments on the BOB DVD that were unbelievable to me. My top three:

1. The Dick Cavett Young Americans performance

Bowie had become famous as Ziggy Stardust. Now, he looks completely different as a different character, singing with African Americans, and performing a well-written rhythm and blues classic. He looks like a literally different person. This is Bowie history in the making. Mind blowing.

2. Drive In Saturday- Russell Harty Show

Never has Bowie looked more beautiful and diabolical than on this appearance. This could be the devil himself come to earth as a singer. Drive-In Saturday is also such a cunning, elusive song that this entire clip is... mind-blowing.

3. Hallo Spaceboy

One of the most fascinating series of images I have ever seen in a music video. Mind-blowing.

Well, my three mind blowing moments on BOB were...

1. David Bowie dancing with himself and other crazy mirror dealies- Miracle Goodnight
That was pretty freaking cool.

2. Jump They Say.
The first video on it that got me hooked. I remember watching with my cousin one time and she said to me, "So is he going to jump or what?" And THAT is where it's beauty lies.

3. All that kooky stock footage in the Hallo Spaceboy video
I especially liked it because at times it actually went along with the lyrics. And to this day, I wonder what that "mystery spot" is.

I have to agree with you entirely on Drive-In Saturday. Wow, that is pure glam Ziggyness at its best. I've never seen him look so wonderful. It is truly mind-blowing.

You are also right with Young Americans on Dick Cavett. That IS Bowie history in the making. His cocaine induced skinniness really shows with that pointy jacket that looks utterly Thin White Dukish. Just the thing about the BOB DVD is watching DB going through his famed ch-ch-ch-changes that is mind-blowing to me.

The last thing I would have to say is the Old Grey Whistle Test clips. They are fantastic. This IS David Bowie. And he's so young too!!! When I first saw this with his crazy cool outfit and red platforms I couldn't believe it. This is a great "mind-blowing" way to start off the DVD. Wow, he's spectacular playing the piano. It's just so Bowie it's hard to stand it.

I agree with LittleOogie. As it starts, for all the people who are new to Bowie don't expect him to look so young. It's a great starter

I'd also like to add Hearts Filthy Lesson. It's so different and dark, compared to the video before (Buddha of Suburbia) where he walks around streets singing, and in this one…. where he's smearing blood across his face. It's just a change, and the song itself is brilliant. Mind blowing for me..

Life On Mars? –Very simple video but, the close up of him is quite breathtaking. Especially on the eyes…..quite mesmerizing. Even though you know perfectly well how he looks like, you continue to watch his face in some sort of daze. A big mind blower.

Me? I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest... Honestly. It's the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly... stupid. -Captain Jack Sparrow

I thought the Video collection in 93 was the best thing ever until this DVD came out, it was magical seeing the performances from the 70's for the first time, an unbelievable dream come true. And the mid to late 90's videos made me re evaluate this period.

Day after day, they take my friends away,
to a mansion cold and grey,
on the far side of town.

I am just completely mesmorized by the 'ch-ch-ch changes' throughout the video, if, like me, you've sat and watched the whole 4 hours in one sitting, its just crazy to see his style and look change, and how he can just successfully spread across genres. And, how he can remain amazingly good looking!

Anyway, enough waffle, on with the top 3..
1. Hearts Filthy Lesson - just love everything about the whole art and murder concept..definitely a favourite. Its just so dark and arty and bloody and wonderful. yum yum.
2. Jump they say - again an excellent idea/concept beautifully created..it's so clever! I love it when he's lying on the car with all the people around him, and then suddenly opens his eyes and sings 'jump'. And when his face is all cut and bruised. y'know, i have a thing for blood. yum.
3. The old grey whistle tests - just great footage of early Bowie...and you gotta love those boots!

Is this true?? new [re: Ziggygirl88]  

amazon.co.uk has this in the description for the BOB DVD...
does it work?

"..Although there are no listed bonus features, the discs are swarming with extra "Easter egg" features such as alternative videos and vintage interviews (these can be accessed via the track-listing menu, by pressing the RIGHT followed by the SELECT key on selected tracks)."

Re: Is this true?? new [re: Ziggygirl88]  

Yes, it's true, you can access most of the easter eggs by clicking the right arrow instead of enter on the tracklistings.
