Respectful Insolence

One more reason I’m a huge David Bowie fan

Here he is on Extras, providing a little impromptu song:

What an honor, to be dissed by Bowie in song, and a song that rather sounds like some of his really old stuff.

You know, it’d be really cool if Bowie were to record this tune. Speaking of which, it’s been three years since his last album. Yes, I know that he suffered a small MI and had to undergo angioplasty, but that was a couple of years ago. He’s due to get back in the studio.

Come on, David, we want new material!

    What a lovely coincidence; I just watched that episode this morning. And I second the call for new Bowie music…

    That was awesome.

    Just brilliant Linda. He’s banal and facile, a fat waste of space….

    Now doesn’t Bowie look strange with his teeth straightened? Something less angular about his face too….Harley Street?

    If you liked this episode then the next one (aired Thurs night over here) you will love. My favourite ‘Extras’ episode by far. I never knew Daniel Radcliffe could be so funny.

    I mist how Bowie was prior to Ashes to Ashes (Scary Monsters and Super Creeps). His early stuff is simply *%$&ing amazing, and this is from someone to wasn’t around when he was at his height.

    Come back to us Ziggy!!!

    Another rabid Bowie fan here! I agree, we need a new album. He looks healthy enough here…crack the whip! He’s only my mom’s age! Heh…I suppose we’ll demand new music from his corpse someday.

    Christian: Have you given Reality or Heathen a good listen? I agree they’re not Ziggy, but I really like ‘em, and there’s echoes (if only echoes) of the old days in them.

    And if you’re nostalgic, I can’t say enough about the three-disc “Bowie at the Beeb” set, including the “Limited Edition” (I think it’s still common) 2000 performance disc. I gave one as a gift for another Bowie-fanatic friend and a couple weeks later he kissed me.
