And I’m back. Breaking my way back into this whole blogging thing. Whoo.
Top Ten Tuesday. Let’s try to make this a recurring thang.
Today, I’m going to celebrate David Bowie’s birthday with a top ten of my favorite of his songs. Why, you ask? Because I can, and it’s my blog, and I’m probably the only person reading, so why not?
Also, my parents cultivated a healthy love of glam rock/punk/new wave in me at a young age. And also, I’ve loved David Bowie since I first saw the movie Laybrinth, even though I didn’t know he was the guy who sang “that song that scared me”(ie: Space Oddity). David Bowie doesn’t have a perfect voice, but he’s got an honest one, and his music makes me feel things. And he and Iman are the dieties/leaders of my people, the Glamazons.
These songs aren’t presented in any particular ranking. Also, youtube/videos don’t run terribly well on my computer, so I’m presenting the list without video accompaniment. All are worth a listen, though, so seek ye out the kingdom of Bowie.
