That part in teenage wildlife where it goes

You'll take me aside, and say
"Well, David, what shall I do?
They wait for me in the hallway"
I'll say "Don't ask me, I don't know any hallways"
But they move in numbers and they've got me in a corner
I feel like a group of one, no-no
They can't do this to me
I'm not some piece
of teenage wildlife

I like the Chinaman guitar riff because of how cheesey it is. It's a product of the times, you wouldn't hear that in a hit song these days. Bowie you marvellous bastard you. I like how he picked the most stereotypical Asian woman for the video, who happened to be a Kiwi Vietnamese woman.

Sorry. I dont know why it took Bowie dying for me to delve deeper into his discog. I already knew I would love Blackstar the moment I heard the title track back in October, and prior to that I really enjoyed Heroes.
I'm sure most people who have found recent interest in Bowie had a similar liking to his previous works as I did. We're not band wagoners, we're late bloomers.

Shhh. There were plenty of Bowie threads when he was alive.

As for me, I was wearing a Bowie shirt when I found out he died, while I was in the middle of a then-month long Bowie phase. So yeah, that's where I was.
>>
This whole live performance.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiydgQymvTE

I seriously don't get it why this album was so panned by the critics. They pointed out for David's stretched vocals in certain songs, as if he didn't do that all the time, even in studio sessions. Ever since I've listened to this, David Live has become of my all time favourite live albums.
>>
>>61869886
Bowie was talked about immensely as soon as Blackstar came out.

I bet you're the type that thinks anyone who wasn't an openly obnoxious Star Wars nerd for the decade since ROTS is a bandwagoner because they talk now talk about Star Wars

>>61866718
Also yes

>>61866758
All of those, too. There's also that moment in the live version of Stay from the special edition of Station to Station where he finishes the repeated chorus and starts belting out STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY and such. It's live, but goddamn, Bowie.

Fuck I'm going to miss him. At least we still have this all.

Pretty much all of Diamond Dogs, but especially the chorus in Big Brother. Probably one of the parts of this album where you could see what he wanted to with making a 1984 musical.

This moment really dwarfs every other major moment in Bowie songs, and Black Tie White Noise really dwarfs all other Bowie albums.
>>
the piano solo in aladdin sane
>>
>>61872773
I like your moment, but Black Tie White Noise is not one of his better records. There's too much middle of the road material that suffers from a very adult contemporary production choice. The best songs on it stray from the general atmosphere of the record, Miracle Goodnight being one example.

It's still a very good record, but it's in the lower half easily.

I saw them live in around 2003 and Tim DeLaughter's young son nearly fell off the stage.
He came out to sing with them in his own little robe, which was funny, but it nearly turned very dark, very quickly.

I love reading about all these favorite moments and thinking of how diverse they are. there's folk rock to industrial and everything in between. bowie was truly a musical god; you could hear how much he loved the art of music and how enthused he was to take it in every possible direction. the berlin trilogy alone showed how incredibly flexible he was as an artist. I'm so happy we have so much to listen to from him. he left us a truly wonderful gift.

Yes but the double meaning is pretty obvious, he just didn't put it in the lyrics because he didn't know when he'd be dead

I've never understood why this one wasn't bigger, more well-known. Not that moment, really, just that it's a good song. The real huge thing, to me, is that with that video proving it, with that sound, that delivery, that was the return of the Thin White Duke. It's all there. It's odd to me that nobody seems to catch that, or at least mention it.

anyway the "sweet thing/candidate/sweet thing" medley is probably my favorite and has multiple amazing moments

and a more obscure one is the weird little song "we prick you" on 1.outside

the microphone setup was a stroke of genius. as bowie got louder they switched to more distant mikes so by the end he's actually screaming across the whole studio to a mike that's 50 feet away. it's a brilliant bit of audio fuckery by visconti and there's nothing pleb about it.

>>61866527
It's a fantastic moment. It might be obvious, but that doesn't mean it isn't the best.

Threads like this highlight how little I actually focus on music.

I listen to it, and some musicians I really know a lot about, but to pick out "That brief moment where the strings come in" makes me feel bad about how little goes unnoticed.
