David Bowie- Space Oddity
I can't say that I was ever a big Bowie fan. Now that I'm older, I can definitely get into his stuff from the 60's and 70's, but my first introduction to Bowie was "China Girl" and well, enough said. Every song that became a video for MTV of off the Let's Dance album blew so it was easy for me to hate the guy. And then he was married to that Iman chick and I couldn't stand her either. Then he had to go on and do that Tin Machine crap. So you can understand why it took me a while to appreciate early Bowie. And that really didn't happen until my 30's. Yeah I was that stubborn.
I definitely plan on searching for more of his pre Let's Dance records. This one here is really good. "Cygnet Committee" is a nice long tune. I'm one of the few people I know that enjoy really long songs. Which is funny because I hate all those crappy jam bands. Well that's all I got to say about Bowie. Here's the Flight of the Conchords doing the Bowie song: Too funny.
