Re: LOW: Most Experimental Popular Album of the 20 [re: Adam]  

"A better post this time, but once again, you're obsessing terribly over US sales."

You were the one who implied that his Scandinavian sales weren't important and that they were hence, "negligible". So naturally I was showing you examples of other stats.

" That whole problem comes up time and again with us, No Control. 130 million sales worldwide, remember?"

And you know why it's a problem? Because Bowie hasn't sold anywhere near 130 million albums. He might of sold 130 million singles and albums though.

"Assuming Zappa WAS Bowie's creative and popular equivalent......how was their relationship with each other? I heard there was friction."

Uh Adam, Frank Zappa was so far above and beyond Bowie in terms of just about everything that it's laughable to even think Bowie could surpass him with anything other than record sales (which Bowie has), that I would easily say Bowie wasn't anywhere near Zappa's creative equivalent - no one was or is! FZ has nearly 80 albums of material released to date. And to add to that, there's 70-80 albums worth of material that hasn't even been released yet!

As far as their relationship goes. There really wasn't one. On FZ's '78 European tour in Berlin (I think), Bowie wandered up to the front of the stage during one of Zappa's solos and asked Adrian Belew to join his band! He obviously accepted and weeks later he was on tour with David! Frank wasn't amused with this as it was evident when Bowie and Zappa's Band were in the same restaurant after the show. Bowie approached Frank and tried to mutter something but before he could, Zappa said, "Go away Major Tom"! He really didn't want anything to do with him at the time. But Frank eventually gave Belew his blessing to go and play with Bowie in the end. Zappa even parodied Let's Dance in a song called Be In My Video.

Here's the lyrics:

Be in my video,
Darling, every night
I will rent a cage for you
And mi j-i-nits dressed in white
(teeny-little-tiny-little . . . )

Twirl around in a lap dissolve
Pretend to sing the words
I'll rent a gleaming limousine;
Release a flock of
Ber-herna-herna-herna
Herna-her-nerds

Wear a leather collar
(Wear a leather collar)
And a dagger in your ear
I will make your nose smell the glove
And try to look sincere, then we'll

Dance the blues
(Oh yes)
Let's dance the blues
(We'll dance the blues)
Let's dance the blues
(We'll dance them very much)
Under the megawatt moonlight

Pretend to be Chinese,
(One-hung-low)
I'll make you wear red shoes
There's a cheesy atom bomb explosion
All the big groups use

Atomic light will shine
(Will shine)
Through an old venetian blind
(Venetian blind)
Making patterns on your face,
(On your face)
Then it cuts to outer space

With its billions & billions &
Billions & billions

Be in my video
(In my video)
Darling, every night
(Darling, every night)
Everyone in cable-land
(Everyone in cable-gable-land)
Will say you're 'outa-site'
(I say they'll say you're 'outa-site')

You can show your legs
(You can show the pretty legs)
While you're getting in the car, then
(In my red hot bright car, then I . . . )
I will look repulsive
([With my big ears and all])
While I mangle my guitar

Reen-toon-teen-toon-teen-toon
Tee-nu-nee-nu-nee,
Moo-ahhhh

Reen-toon-teen-toon-teen-toon
Tee-nu-nee-nu-nee,
Moo-ahhhh

Reen-toon-teen-toon-teen-toon
Tee-nu-nee-nu-nee,
Moo-ahhhh

Tee-nu-nee----moo-ahhhh
Tee-nu-nee----moo-wah-wah-wah-ooo

After all the close-up shots
Of you in bondage leather
They'll spray an alley with a hose
And we'll escape together, while we

Dance de blude agin
(I'm dancing the blues)
(Oh yes, we'll dance the blues)
Led dance de blude agin
(I'm dancing the blues)
(Sure we will)
Led dance de blude agin
(I'm dancing . . . )
(We'll dance them blues)
In de middle o' de alley

Let's dance your face
(Let's dance your face)
Let's dance your lips
(And dance your lips)
Let's dance your nose
(We can dance your nose)
And then we'll dance your sinus
MOO-AHHHH!




...don't tell god your plans...
