What exactly is new wave? I mean, first it was a different name for punk, but then it morphed into...weird stuff.

A driving rock pulse on the bass, a reverb-drenched guitar tone, and SYNTHS. Throw in a non-chalant vocalist and you've got most new wave bands. Some bands emphasize one of those elements over the others, but at least three of them have to be there.

I've never heard it . Blonde on Blonde's not there either as I've only heard it once and don't remember a damn thing about it. I really need to get around to rectifying that at some point.

Random lyrics I've written down on various papers in my school binder:

1. "There's a little black spot on the sun today"
2. "I don't mind falling in love again, my heart on the line again"
3. "I promise you won't feel a thing"
4. "At the moment of surrender"
5. "Lift my days, light up my nights"
6. "You'll find me in the matinee, the dark of the matinee, it's better in the matinee, the dark of the matinee is mine"
7. "I just want to slide away and come alive again, I will see that love again and find a life again"
8. "Cause I'll be taking all the chances for you, so lay your cuts and bruises over my skin, I promise you won't feel a thing, no, cause everything the world could throw, I'll stand in front, I'll take the blow, for you, for you"
9. "My best friend took a week's vacation to forget her, his girl took a week's worth of Valium and slept, now he's guilt stricken sobbing with his head on the floor, thinks about her now and how he never really wept, he said: I can't be held responsible"
10. "Let me go on, like I blister in the sun"
11. "In the dark of night, those small hours, uncertain and anxious, I need to call you, room full of strangers, some call me friend, but I wish you were so close to me"
12."Gonna take you over"
13. "I am searching"
14. "And it feels so familiar, must have been here before, singing 'I don't want to go, but I don't want to hurt anymore'"
15. "And the stars look very different today"
16. "We'll slide down the surface of things"
17. "The echoes of a life"
18. "Listen to the walls, we share the same spaces, repeated in the corridors, performing the same movements"
19. "Mystify me"
20. "Leave all your love and your loving behind you"
21. "Sometimes you kick, sometimes you get kicked"
22. "And I feel fine!"
23. "Do you feel in me anything redeeming?"
24. "Don't dare me to breathe"
25. "There has to be an invisble sun"
26. "I'm elegantly wasted"
27. "The time is right to kill your fears"
28. "I took the stars from my eyes"
29. "Do you dream that the world will know your name? So tell me your name"

Had a hard time finding this thread for the lack of smiley. GOD DAMN IT LM.

Anyway. I listened to Space Oddity today because I listened to Streethawk the day before, which reminds me Space Oddity.

Space Oddity
Memory of a Free Festival (love that refrain)
Cygnet Committee
Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed
~
Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud
Letter to Hermione (read somewhere this is Ricky Gervais' favourite Bowie song)
~
Janine
An Occasional Dream
God Knows I'm Good

It's a frustratingly unsatisfying album to listen to in my opinion despite a few great tracks.




Watch That Man (one of my favourite hooks, like, ever)
Panic in Detroit
Aladdin Sane
Time
Lady Grinning Soul
Cracked Actor
Drive-In Saturday
~
Jean Genie
The Prettiest Star
Let's Spend The Night Together

Probably my favourite. But I think those last three bring it down. The first seven in my list are all outstanding in my view.




"Heroes"
~
Sons of The Silent Age (savagely underrated. God those verses are incredible to my ears, the smattering of the cymbals, the robotic guitar and Bowie's detached vocals and the chorus is terrific too)
Secret Life of Arabia (second half is fucking amazing. Dirty, dark, funky)
Beauty and the Beast
Joe the Lion
Blackout
V-2 Schneider
~
Neukoln
Moss Garden
Sense of Doubt

I love this album mostly because of that group of six tracks outside of "Heroes". Love them to death. Unfortunately, the instrumentals/ambient pieces bring it down. I'm not averse to that music; I just think Eno did a lot better and I don't feel they work on "Heroes" as well as others do.




Life on Mars?
~
Oh! You Pretty Things
Quicksand
Queen Bitch
The Bewlay Brothers
Eight Line Poem (gorgeous, really underrated)
Song For Bob Dylan
Changes
~
Kooks
Andy Warhol
Fill Your Heart

Another strong contender for my favourite (I've never been able to pick one).




Look Back in Anger
~
Boys Keep Swinging
Fantastic Voyage
DJ
Move On
Red Sails
Red Money
Repetition
~
Yassasin
African Night Flight

Don't even hate this album. I just say I do to piss of Laz. It is however my least favourite. And by quite a distance.




A New Career in a New Town (my all-time favourite Bowie song)
Speed of Life
Always Crashing in the Same Car
Breaking Glass
Subterraneans (incredible)
Sound and Vision
What in the World
~
Be My Wife
Warszawa
Art Decade
Weeping Wall

Another favourite contender. Would easily be my #1 but those last three instrumentals don't do much for me. The drumming on this album is fucking astounding.




Five Years
Ziggy Stardust
Moonage Daydream
Lady Stardust (another one of his classic early 70s hooks. Magic)
Starman
~
Rock 'n' Roll Suicide (overrated)
Suffragette City
Star (really underrated, great coda)
Soul Love
Hang on to Yourself
It Ain't Easy

Yet another contender. Probably his most consistent, even album. I've been infatuated with the story for years and well worth all the plaudits it has received.




Station to Station (third section is what I wish dance music was like today)
Stay
Golden Years
Word on a Wing
Wild is the Wind
TVC15

Another one! They just keep coming. Nothing close to a bad song. I think its detachedness is the reason I don't love it quite as much as I should... but that's the point. Thin White Duke and all that.
