For Bowie fans ....
Not sure if I've heard this album before either.
too many people from our youth dying
if Kerouac was a musician
he was truly unique in his ability to play a ballad that didn't drip of ick
One of the better Canadians.
Hey @LAdiablo ... This article might make you barf. Sorry.
Superficial, politicized twats like this deserve their worst blowback. Instead, they end up with Pulitzers.
Superficial was the word that came to mind as I read this as well. Under the word salad, there's very little depth.
But the theme of his story is why I can still enjoy Bruce Springsteen's music.
a karen with an agenda
by her own admission a weird kid
no one would bang her, so now she’s bitter her knight chose another… allegedly
and by all means take the word of a (then) 15 year old groupie’s claim… i mean, no way anyone would ever claim something to make something of themselves that no one could (now) corroborate, right?
i would have liked this except one part threw me
I loved Bruce up until Tunnel of Love. After that, he thought he was Woody Guthrie.
Gotta keep you guessing.
Since Rube's been gone someone has to do it.
But I'd also have to improve my words/post count by at least 1000x.
He's not even Arlo.
so we're burying mom on the 23rd and i'm going to take my sister to see the Cure that night and my best friend on the 24th at Hollywood bowl
the band is reaching way back for some of the most emotional madness ever created and its such a perfect way
mom used to say Robert seemed like he meant it
yes he always did and still does
played this on the 24th another legend song off the kiss me lp
was so high and numb i don't much remember the 23rd
people were coming up to me and loving my clothes and i was like i didn't change after burying mom today
cure fans are the best and i never hugged so many people i never met
another deep cut played live
I forget exactly where @LAdiablo unfurled his David Bowie love with an album breakdown in tis thread ....
But anyway, I decided to listen to Hunky Dory because someone said how good it was. I think the song was Queen Bitch. I'd never really heard it. So I checked it out. Holy hell ... what a great album. Oh You Pretty Things floored me. Ditto Life on mars, which I had heard before but the cool factor of it had never sunk in.
I have no tolerance for people who praise freaks like Alaistar Crowley (which apparently Bowie was doing with some of the "Pretty Things" lyrics, but when he sings "don't you know you're driving your mamas and papas insane" he is nailing the inevitable wedge that that secular humanism drove between parents and children after the 50s. All this gender disphoria and race-baiting ... it is clearly a managed, exploited scam, set like a firebreak for flames which aren't there to begin with. Bowie was dwelling in that awareness on this album in several places. He was a heady guy as we know, but he was more than some androgynous rock star; he was picking is spots and this really shows that off.
Just never realized how good that music is on there.
well if you liked that i'd jump right into Diamond dogs and Aladdin Sane
imo queen bitch is one of the greatest songs ever
