That MTV interviewer is a complete disaster. I'd like to think times have changed, but I'm not so sure. "We can't only think about people in NYC and LA, but in Poughkeepsie and the Midwest, which will be scared to death by Prince".

He was such a gentleman there, though. Never yielded, but never became aggressive. Can't say I would have reacted the same way.

And the VJ tried his best but I wonder why he bothered trying to defend (outside of defending his employer and being courteous to Bowie) considering he had nothing to do with MTV programming of videos and is merely a VJ.

I've been looking for an interview, and I can't find it I don't remember if it's video or text, but there's something I saw, maybe on Cracked, from back in the late 60s, where Bowie was being interviewed and he talked about how he was going to be famous, not if he became famous, anyone familiar with that?

That was Mark Goodman, one of the 5 original Veejays.
He was in a tough spot there, its not like he was responsible for the programming content on MTV.

Tough spot, sure, but there were a couple of things he said that were like "WOAH" that's fucked. Times change, I guess. But yeah, how good is Bowie in it. Even when it was clear he was in vehement disagreement he just does this wry smile. What a man.

YES.

I want to include Station to Station but I wonder if it's not deep enough. I mean it is the title and first track to an album that has universal critical acclaim. Quicksand is a great suggestion though.

I'm envisioning this article as a primer for people who only know Bowie for the hits. It's unlikely that they would know Station to Station.

If you want a really deep cut from Station to Station, go with Stay.

Nothing from 1980 onward?


Seconding the votes for Bring Me The Disco King (which would have also been a great final track had he retired/died after Reality), Strangers When We Meet, and Sunday. Though for that last one, Heathen (The Rays) would also work.
