Can I just say

THat Soul Love and Star are really underrated songs.

NOW

I have to do an assignment for school where we bang on about something for 5 to 10 minutes. Everyone is expecting me to do U2, but I have decided to explain the story of Ziggy Stardust. So I'm going to do a write-up, and post it back, tell me what you all think.

metal?

I don't know if I'd go that far, definitely some prog in there though.

I keep telling people how great the last two albums were (Heathen features a great cameo by Pete Townshend), but no one believes or agrees with me. They could each stand to lose a couple songs, but whatever.

Of course, this is coming from someone who liked Outside and Earthling.

I would also recommend Young Americans, even if the rest of the album doesnt' quite live up to the title track.

Personally, I like Aladdin Sane better than Ziggy song for song, and I'm surprised no one else has singled the album out. But yeah, you can't go wrong by getting ANY Bowie from the 70's.

Also, if you're going to get Low and Heroes, might as well get Lodger too. I think it's really underrated, and while it's not as revolutionary as Low, the individual tracks are good. It's interesting to hear how the sound progressed from the beginning of the "Eno" trilogy to the end.

Bowie from '71 to '80 is fucking godly. You can't miss with anything.

I loved Heathen and Reality, especially Heathen. It's almost like Scary Monsters meets the Ziggy/Aladdin Sane days, amazing stuff.

Yeah, that's what I thought. The Berlin/Eno trilogy. I'll grab that, and probably Alladin Sane.

Low/"Heroes" for $14 at JB

Oh while I'm here, I'm writing my Ziggy thing, and I'm stuck for explanations for the following songs: Soul Love, Moonage Daydream, Hang on to Yourself and Suffragette City.

Five Years is all sweet, Starman should be right, It Ain't Easy I'm using as a premonition/forewarning of his troubles. Lady Stardust I'm saying is his lady telling Ziggy's life pre-stardom, Star will be fine, Ziggy too and RnRS cool.

I bought Low and Heroes for $15

I know you can't judge a book by its cover, but neither look too promising lol

I'm not too crazy about what I've heard from Heroes, but Low is brilliance.

Low is probably his 2nd-best album behind Ziggy.

Heroes is enjoyable, which one of my 5 Fave Bowie Tracks: "Heroes"

Queen Bitch is my favorite song off of Hunky Dory. I get a nerd giggle when I hear it in The Life Aquatic every time.

Kooks is one of the worst songs I have ever heard.
