Tis on that "Bowie at the Beeb" album.

I can send.
He also did a great cover of WLWH on the Serious Moonlight tour, imo, his best version of the song.

I was watching some of the clips from the 1980 Floor Show on YouTube today, whoever is responsible for that show never seeing the light of day on Video/DVD should be SHOT!

Have any of y'all seen the movie "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence" w/Bowie? Because I'm considering buying it off of eBay but I wanted to know if someone here had seen it and had an opinion of it.

As much as I worship the ground the fella walks on, my advice is to listen to his music, watch his live shows, but avoid the films, I've watched Merry Xmas, The Hunger, TMWFTE, & none of them are what you'd call cinematic classics, if you can get it REAL cheap, then yeah buy it but don't waste more than a quid/dollar on it, imo it just isn't worth wasting a couple of hours of your life watching it, nevermind the money.

I'm enjoying them now
What do you make of them, U2Democrat?

I had read interesting things about Merry X-Mas and I really like POW/WWII/Prison movies so I was curious.

I love Labrynth....it's a great movie!!! It still pisses me off that at the end *SPOILER* that Sarah chooses her little brother over having a relationship with Jareth. Crazy girl.

I can't get Starman out of my head for the life of me. I think it's become my new favorite song.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow for the win?

^Except Station to Station, Lady Grinning Soul, Width of a Circle (sooo overlooked).....

The Killers actually did a pretty good cover of Moonage Daydream.

There's a Starman - the first few notes of the chorus are the exact same as those from Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I don't think it's intentional, but when I realized it for the first time I thought it was awesome

Here's something interesting you may not have known about Life On Mars?

Quote:
The song has its origins from an occurrence when Bowie was asked to write English lyrics to a French song ("Comme d'habitude"), the song he came up with was "Even a Fool Learns to Love". The Canadian songwriter Paul Anka bought the rights to the original French version, and rewrote it into an English song called "My Way," later made famous by Frank Sinatra. Bowie's version was never released. "Life on Mars?" was Bowie's riposte to losing out on a fortune; it has exactly the same chord progression as "My Way," and as Bowie explained in an interview with the BBC, it is a "modernistic take" on the Anka/Sinatra song.

I've noticed that too. That Death Cab for Cutie ("I will Follow You Into The Dark")song also sounds like "Somewhere Over the Ranibow" in the beginning.
