    I liked "Modern Love", "Young Americans", and "The Man Who Sold the World".

    I also love the duet with Freddy Mercury, "Under Pressure" - "It's the terror of knowing what this world is about, it's watching some good friend scream, 'Let me out!!!'"

    Under Pressure has one of the best beats in modern music. That song is on my top 25 songs of all-time, for certain.

    True, rollo. Bowie is one of those musicians who is a master of the album. It seems that the album is relegated to being an indie art anymore. People buy music by the track now and putting a lot of time and work into long albums isn't so lucrative for big labels in this market.

    i grew up on his music. my mom really liked him. i liked the early eighties stuff, he looks nice in the vids with the blonde curls and yellow suits. i also like his industrial shit, he looks even cooler there. mid nineties, w/trent reznor.

    I was just going through a bunch of Bowie songs on YouTube and I think he is a certified genius - and a seminal influence for progressive rockers. Love Suffragette City, and All the Young Dudes.

    Here's one probably hardly anyone here ever heard of - "Pretty Pink Rose", with Adrian "King Crimson" Belew. When Mrs. Mohandas and I were dating, we were members of this gym in the middle of an old industrial park, and this song came on ALL THE DAMN TIME when we worked out. It grew on me, and really reminds me of some fun times:

    i'm still an album snob and i still only listen to musicians who can put out decent albums, not just songs.

    re:bowie. his latest album's not bad, but still nowhere near his older stuff. and i just pretend anything he made in the 90s and up to 2013 doesn't exist. but hey, he's 68, he had a pretty great run, and made more amazing albums than most and i can't really think of anyone his age and with his career who has been consistently amazing and didn't have a crappy decade or two when they got old and jaded.

    That's awesome. I agree, he's a musical genius. I was listening to him talk a few years ago and he was mentioning how Pink Floyd, with Syd Barrett, was really influential to him in the mid-60's. I would have never thought that, listening to later Pink Floyd.

    You'll appreciate this. I went to see him live, at Merriweather Post. I had row J, which was basically the 10th row. They had a noise ordinance back then and the performers had to stop at ten. He knew this and mentioned it, but said he was going to have the break the rules that night. It was amazing. I think it was 89 or something and he did all of his old stuff, because he knew that's what most of us were there for.

    I think that was the year that Mrs. Mohandas went to Merriwether to see Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Melissa Etheridge, who was still kind of unknown, was opening for them. She fell in love with the song "Like the Way I Do" and introduced me to it. God, that is a great song!

    Merriweather always had such great acts. I saw Madonna and her opening act was the Beastie Boys. She had a hard time living up to them. I also saw Public Image Ltd, Eurythmics, Echo and the Bunnymen, he B-52's, New Order, Depeche Mode, Nik Kershaw (no one knows him), Elvis Costello, Aztec Camera, too many to list. I loved that area because we got really good shows. 9:30 club was also awesome.
