What got you into Bowie new  

After a saturday evening in 1983 when I was seventeen spent listening to my friends battered RCA singles the first thing I bought was Hunky Dory, followed the next week by Ziggy Stardust, What got you into Bowie, and what was the first thing you bought?

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

Re: What got you into Bowie new [re: pablopicasso]  

I heard "Starman" on the "Decades" compilation and thought it was fabbo!!! I then bought "Bowie at the Beeb" and promptly fell in love with the music, so I bought "Ziggy" and it went from there. This was about 4 years ago - FAN FOR LIFE now. I bought decades because of the T Rex song "20th Century Boy", which I heard on the trailer for "Billy Elliot" - without that film Glam Rock would have passed me by.

It was fantastic finding Bowie and experiencing all the different albums one by one. Have you managed to amass much in the four years?

Re: What got you into Bowie new [re: pablopicasso]  

A certain movie titled "Labyrinth" got me hooked on the man. I was about 5 or 6. But it wasn't until I was a little older, like 8 or 9 I saw the China girl video as well as Blue Jean on Swedish MTV. My dad had the Ziggy CD, but I was into his 80s stuff and early 90s stuff first, and as the years went on, I've made new and excting discoverties of the 70's Bowie.

Hello, I love you...

It was Space Oddity. In my 7th grade English class. I had never heard anything so beautiful before, and my instant reaction was an urge to squeal and cling to the tape recorder.
Alas, I didn't do that. Not straight away, anyway.

Actually, I'm a lab mouse on stilts.

Oddly enough watching the movie 'Se7en', and hearing 'The Heart's Filthy Lesson' at the end of it. As I loved the movie, I fell in love with the music as well, and immediately went out and bought 1.Outside. Kind of explored the 70's albums retrospectively and have a rather full CD wallet of his stuff.
