Starting with Dennis Davis' drums crashing in


I have the impression David once said that for Sound and Vision they used one of the first 'drum machines'. I'll try to find the exact quote if I still have it. So it can't be Dennis Davis. Correct me if i am wrong.

Sound and Vision. 'Cause it's better.

shit! new [re: Strawman]  

Damn, this is really REALLY hard. AND we Melbournites were luck enough to get them both in the same gig last year too.

The dramatic lyric and vocal of Life On Mars? VS the bleak desperation of Sound and Vision....

Um....... Today my vote is SOUND AND VISION.

Re: Bowie Hits -- THE FINAL new [re: Strawman]  

I vote for Sound And Vision because I like it better than Life On Mars....and...um...I have more associated happy memories (Steve, you Low-loving stud) and....hmmm....Life On Mars is rather straightforward piano-ballad riff on My Way whereas Sound And Vision could really be from another planet. Maybe not Mars, but perhaps Uranus. The percussion is just amazing, especially the cymbals. And the strings are to die for. Plus Bowie's deep sexy voice. Also, I've never heard it live, which makes it almost mystical. I always think that when you hear a song live, it kinda cheapens it.

I like dogs. You always know what a dog is thinking. It has four moods. Happy, sad, cross and concentrating. Also, dogs are faithful and they do not tell lies because they cannot talk.

I know what you mean with this particular song, I don't agree with you on all live songs sounding kinda cheap, on the other hand I've heard and have got on CD and DVD Bowie singing "Sound and Vision" live ( Tokyo 1990 Boot ) It's not that type of song that works live. It's a very good song but not in the same room as "Life On Mars?".

Sound & Vision
- because it has more emotional resonance, for me anyway.

all of us are in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars

I hear you. For almost a decade I never listened to any Bowie live stuff, couldn't stand bootlegs, couldn't get the excitment out of any single gig. The 50th Birthday Bash was a major exception - everytime I watched it I was on the edge of my seat feeling like I was in the front row (and still feel that way about it). But I only enjoyed album stuff, boots aren't the same if you weren't there.

Of course, things changed after Reality hit Melbourne last year. I rediscovered how good a live gig can be. Especially when you've got Bowie off his dial pretending stuffed marsupials are the Flaming Lips in the Twilight Zone and then he throws 4 in a row from Low for you when you're least expecting it.
