    I was thinking more Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Lindsay Lohan.

    Another one of Bowie's lost gems is "The Man Who Sold The World," which is a pretty creepy song. Nirvana revived that song in 1993 during their Unplugged concert in New York City a few months before Kurt Cobain died.

    oooh, poetic lyrics. i never heard the song before, but the lyrics read like a poem. nice.

    on an aside, bowie looks great for his age. i'm jealous.

    I use to love Bowie a lot when I was younger, haven't listen to him in a while.
    On that note, Ziggy Stardust is defaintly one of my favorite albums.

    I like Space Oddity as well. Modern Love is pretty cool.
    I am human and I need to be loved just like everybody else does.

    I have a HUGE respect for David Bowie. He is one of the most influential artists in modern music history. Without him, bands I like would not exist.
    My obsessions: Joy Division, New Order, Bones, The Office.
