David Bowie survivor - Tonight

Oh yes, we're back, again. The next few rounds might be quite excruciating. Heathen was the next album to get a vote in the original poll, and we've got nine albums to get through before then. If anyone has any suggestions on how to speed things up, let me know.

Anyway, going through from Let's Dance are Modern Love, China Girl and Cat Peeps (Putting Out Fire).

Now we move on to Tonight, yet another Bowie album I've not heard.



Only ONE song goes through from this album, so choose carefully.

This one is really easy for me. Blue Jean absolutely rules. The first three tracks are pretty good. Man, the versions of Tonight and Neighbourhood Threat here are fucking awful compared to the versions that are on Lust for Life. Tonight, in particular.

But yeah, Blue Jean is awesome, and the extended video clip is cool too.

I may be voting late on this one. My headphones are still in Indiana. Waiting for Travis to send them to me.

God, this album sucks. Had to pick up friends from airport and listened it it twice in the round trip.

Not even Blue Jean is worth a vote, really.

It's so bad you had to listen to it twice?

It's Bowie; it's not like it was torture.

Was mostly background music to talking on the way back.

Listened to it while I was walking to the library this morning and I'm definitely not over the moon about it. Always disliked Blue Jean, too, but I don't want to cause a tie, so instead of voting for Loving the Alien, for funzies, I'm going to vote for God Only Knows.
