[sorry for the random thread bump]

Station to Station just barely edges out "Heroes" because "Stay" is one of my all-time favorite tracks by anyone.

01. Station to Station
02. "Heroes"
03. Low
04. The Man Who Sold the World
05. Scary Monsters
06. Diamond Dogs
07. Aladdin Sane
08. Lodger
09. Heathen
10. Ziggy Stardust

I guess I'm early in my Bowie discovery project because I've only really listened to Ziggy + many singles. I'm on a major "Young Americans" kick right now and I can't imagine a better tribute than this bundle of amazing.

Check out my blog of many topics

Not sure where to put this, but I saw this video today, love it, especially Bowie's high kicks while Jagger is singing.

So many of them are so great. Picked Scary Monsters, because that's what I've found myself listening to the most this last week.

This song especially has been stuck in my head:

I've been thinking about this the last two weeks, but I have just been too busy - I wanted to post something (kind of personal favs), and this seems like as good a place as any ...


"Ashes to ashes, dust to stardust. Your brilliance inspired us all.  Goodbye, Starman."
- Chris Hadfield


"It's just Rock 'n' Roll with lipstick"
- John Lennon


“Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming."
- David Bowie


"I received an email from him seven days ago. It was as funny as always, and as surreal, looping through word games and allusions and all the usual stuff we did.  It ended with this sentence: 'Thank you for our good times, brian. they will never rot'. And it was signed 'Dawn'.  I realise now he was saying goodbye."
- Brian Eno


"If nobody has any objections, I believe I might be of service."
- David Bowie (Zoolander (2000))


"I've always loved that song and I was always disappointed at how [director] Paul Schrader used it in 'Cat People,' because he didn't use it -- he just threw it in the closing credits.  And I remember back then, when 'Cat People' came out, going, 'Man, if I had that song, I'd build a 20-minute scene around it. I wouldn't throw it away in the closing credits.' So I did."
- Quentin Tarantino


"To tell you the truth, I wasn't very familiar with David's music when he asked me to play on the sessions.  David and I talked for hours and hours about our music, about funky Texas blues and its roots. I was amazed at how interested he was."
- Stevie Ray Vaughan


"That is the start of David Lynch’s Lost Highway (1997), one of the most exciting credit sequences that cinema has thrown in our direction; the audience is left shaking before the story has even begun."
- Anthony Lane


"He was a tremendous inspiration in terms of what was possible, what the role of an entertainer could be, that there are no rules.”
- Trent Reznor


"You're familiar with the phrase 'man's reach exceeds his grasp?'  It's a lie: man's grasp exceeds his nerve."
- Nikola Tesla (The Prestige (2005))
