Poll: title of Bowie's next album  

A number of suggestions have been made already in a thread started by Adam.
I made a preselection, based on three conditions:
1-titles that fit in with Adam's description.
2-titles that seemed intere-sting to me.
3-titles that elicited responses from other people.
I selected titles that met BOTH condition 1 AND EITHER condition 2 OR 3.
If you think other titles should have made it, we'll set up another poll with those and then a final, right?


Bowie's next album should be titled
Weapons
Reading
Meadows
Reactor
Peasant
Leather
Beagles
Zealots
Beamish
Deathly
Meander
Hearing
Heavens
Reaming
Beacons
Seagull
Zealand
Reading
Seasons
Reaches

In reply to:

Reading appears twice.


once as the verb associated with books (reed-ing)
and once for the town in Berkshire UK (red-ing)

I think it will be Beagle (no S), and will not be a follow up to diamond dogs, but will instead will be going into detail about Major Tom's Space mission, which was a mission to mars where the exploratory vehicle (called beagle) gets lost in the craters on Mars. When Major Tom goes to try and retrieve beagle he gets bitten by a radioactive Spider on the martian surface, thus proving there was life on Mars too. The last transmission is printed below.
Ground control: Can you hear me Major Tom?

Major Tom: It ain't easy!

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

I think it's going to be a phrase rather than a single word. But then Bowie is good at outfoxing us all.

I voted for Reactor. Bowie tends to write about the environment he lives in (New York, Berlin, etc.), therefore reacting to his surroundings.

Don't understand me, just love me

Of course... a double live album from the secret gig at the 2003 Reading festival. Perfect!

The new heathen reality: weapons! new [re: Earthling on Fire]  

If Adam's theory is correct, then I'll go with Weapons. The Heathen Reality Weapons trilogy has a nice ring to it, and should keep the Interpretation board going for years as to what it all means. I can already see in my mind a good dozen Pianocraft posts comparing musical instruments and lyrical ideas to weapons.

Slan libh,

Dara
