While standing in a record shop on Saturday, the latest single by Goldenhorse tightly clutched in my mitts, (photo of the lovely Kirsten below) I noticed a huge poster advertising the 58th album by David Bowie was out now.
Maybe it's just me being awkward, but I just don't understand what it is about Bowie that everyone likes. Nearly every band I listen too cite Bowie as a influence, everyone expect me has at least one album by him but I can't see what all the fuss is about.
I was a bit young for all his face painting shenanigans back in the 70's, and lets face it, if we're talking facepainting it started and ended with Kiss in my opinion :-). I have a mild liking for "China Girl", "Changes" and "Major Tom", and "Laughing Gnome" made me laugh, but then if we're talking about novelty songs from the 70's so did "Ernie" by Benny Hill and "The Funky Gibbon" by The Goodies. What's Bowie's attraction? Has he ever muttered a sensible word in a interview? I always think he looks a bit of a prat really.
Should I go out and buy and greatest hits and change my life? Can someone please give me a sensible answer. I feel that there's this huge party going next door and I haven't been invited.
