each one had several songs used during the credits of great movies


The coolness of Bowie got me out of a threatening situation one night in the mid 90s. I was in the bathroom of an inner city McDonalds when I found myself confronted by two homosexual Goths that were drinking bottles of hard liquor and shooting up on drugs.

I was a little taken back because the bathroom was only about 3 square metres in size - but to make matters worse, when I went to pee at the urinal, I noticed a recently used syringe only inches away. Noticing my reaction, they offered 'it won't jump out at you'.

Although feeling a bit uneasy, I decided to engage in conversation - and we quickly found common interest on musical grounds. I recall they particularly liked Bowie because of 'The Hearts Filthy Lesson' in the film Se7en and we ended up chatting for some time.

Anyway, I found this all very interesting - how Bowie's music had engaged with youth and alternative culture not via his big hits - but via film. I do wonder if they are still alive today.
