I don't care at all about the soundtrack thing.
It peaks in the middle third, right?

I felt the same about his list, too, but I still really dug it, not as much as the last one though. I forgot to thank him for putting that Todd Rundgren song on his last list, I used it in the Valentine's disc for My Lady Friend.

I enjoy Deep In The Heart more than Walk To The Water.. I've never been able to get into that b-side

Now to listen to the Bowie song CIB linked to.
Look who's becoming a little Bowie fan.

I think you need to re-listen to Ziggy. If your thoughts improve on that, you should listen to Aladdin Sane. It's actually more up your alley because it's more of a heavy guitar record, especially Cracked Actor.

Ax, you should dive headfirst into Labyrinth. I think you'd love the synth and Muppet combination.

Don't worry, I'll get you into PT.

Just as soon as I decide what should go in the conversion pack.

Any third with Moonage Daydream is the peaking third. Rule of thumb.

Your list is dig-worthy, definitely. The funky opening worked for me, and I'm not much of a fan of R&B/funk/hip hop ETC.

One of my favorite Bowie quotes came from you:

"Only David Bowie could do a movie with Muppets and have no one question it."

I don't know what Screwtape sees in WTTW, really. It ... twinkles too much, musically. That's the one thing that really sticks in my head about it.

Thanks.

That's one group of music that gets pretty left out of this competition, I think.

Synths?

Muppets?

Excuse me while I back away slowly and avoid eye contact.

I bought Diamond Dogs today. All I have to say is:

This isn't rock 'n' roll! THIS IS GENOCIDE!

All Bowie fans check out the 1976 rehearsals.

And for good reason. PFan's ska-punk song is musical genius in comparison.
