Every time i watch the video for Blackstar i notice something different. The Lazarus video (and song) is just perfect. Both are absurdly great. I am guessing we won't get anymore videos from this great album...but damn it would be nice if there were a few more surprises like these under wraps somewhere.

HELP ME.

So I've gone with

Memory of a Free Festival
Queen Bitch
Time
A New Career in a New Town
Always Crashing in the Same Car
Joe the Lion
The Secret Life of Arabia
Teenage Wildlife
Strangers When We Meet
Bring Me the Disco King

That's ten. But I really, really want to include Lady Grinning Soul. But I can't bring myself to get rid of any of the above. I feel like the obvious ones to go would be Joe the Lion and Strangers When We Meet, but I really fucking love the former and really want to talk about the krautrock that makes "Heroes" such a good album aside from the title track. The latter is a bit more generic which makes me think it could go but it is a really great song and it's one of only two-post Let's Dance songs, so I kind of need to keep it in. I wasn't going to have Teenage Wildlife either but I'm realising that Scary Monsters is actually a phenomenal album and if I'd listened to it more that song would be a huge favourite. Plus "I'll miss you but he really had to go."

HELP ME I HAVE TO FILE IN AN HOUR

Strangers When We Meet isn't a deep cut. It was a single and went top 40 in the UK, which by definition means you didn't have to dig "deep" to find that particular "cut." So switch that out for Lady Grinning Soul. Problem solved.

I mean, technically, Memory of a Free Festival was a single too, as was Time. I don't think most readers will know these songs, so it's fine. I just picked out Strangers When We Meet because it's the only one with a chart placement that I could find.

Here's what Bowie himself chose on a 2005 compilation:

Strangers is a bizarre single for that album.

I read somewhere today that it's like a companion piece to Heroes and I can kind of hear he resemblance.

Teenage Wildlife cribs more from Heroes I'd say.

I'm going to try and buy Blackstar, Scary Monsters, Heathen and Outside today.

Good luck buying anything Bowie right now. I found a $38 copy of the 1967 debut and the Absolute Beginners soundtrack on vinyl. That's it.

David Bowie 'Thought He Had a Few More Months,' Says Tony Visconti | Rolling Stone

Apparently, more music was being made. Wouldn't be surprised if the leftovers are released sooner rather than later.

Wow. I wonder what the tone of those demos was/is.

David Bowie: The next thread and the next thread...

So I've been telling my GF that if we get married, "Tis A Pity She Was A Whore" would be a great song to be played when she goes down the aisle. I love trolling and I believe my wedding should be no exception. Maybe if I'm lucky her family would never want to ever remain in contact again...

I Can't Give Everything Away would be her father's choice.
