David Bowie Lyrics

A consummate musical chameleon, David Bowie created a
career in the Sixties and Seventies that featured his many
guises: folksinger, androgyne, alien, decadent, blue-eyed
soul man, modern rock star-each one spawning a league of
imitators. His late-Seventies collaborations with Brian Eno
made Bowie one of the few older stars to be taken seriously
by the new wave. In the Eighties, Let's Dance (#1, 1983),
his entree into the mainstream, was followed by attempts to
keep up with current trends.

David Jones took up the saxophone at age 13, More...

Review about David Bowie songs
Major Tom / Walter Mitty | Reviewer: Mimma
    ------ About the song Major Tom performed by David Bowie

Took a while to get into the Walter Mitty film, but now it is one of my all time favorites. Helped by hearing my all time favorite song by David Bowie - Major Tom. What more could I ask for?

    ------ About the song I Would Be Your Slave performed by David Bowie

The rhythmic sample in the background throughout this marvelously arranged and structured pin song , sounds as total antithesis to its lyrical flat planed meaning. Is he teasing the words "fack orf" through an effects box? Throughout the entire Ballard? RSVP

Drugs? Yes! Sincere? Yes! | Reviewer: Al Arch
    ------ About the song Young Americans performed by David Bowie

The frantic delivery sounds like coke and booze are present, but does he mean what he sings? Absolutely!

The song is a trip even if you are not taking drugs - it fascinated me as a kid, and I still listen to it. I am a Brit, as is DB, and I had never been to the USA when I first heard it.

I have been since, many times, and I love the country and the people I've met. But I still feel that many Americans are scared to confront their past. In the UK, the same stage of racism was in the 1950s, when the country needed cheep workers to rebuild the UK after the war. But by the 70s, racism still existed, but the TV could at least joke about it, so it couldn't simple be pushed under the carpet.

Middle-class white people in white-collars jobs could joke about it , but they couldn't deny or avoid it. Racism, even subtle racism, became nasty. It still happened, and it's still here, but at least the mainstream of educated people are less likely to feel true racism. My father used to talk about black and brown people with horrible names that made me shake my head and protest. Of course, he would never have burnt down a "wrong church" - it wasn't what he had been brought up to do.

Now he has Alzheimer's disease, and what surprises me is that he no longer makes offish jokes about race with black and brown nurses who help him. That tells me his former racism was learned rather than innate.

I am actually closer to him now than before.

I don't expect intelligent people in the UK below a certain age to express racism out-loud. That's a good start, at least.

I have met educated people in the USA recently, not only in the deep South, who have said nasty things about people of another colour to them, and it does seem to be a discussible subject as far as they are concerned, and that shocks me.

    ------ About the song Major Tom performed by David Bowie

Ground control to Major Tom, in this song sound sad but in the movie sure it sounds mean... I'm glad Ben Stiller made the movie
it was all worth it -life inspiring. .. n this song is truly shows courage we all need.

After the film | Reviewer: Basia
    ------ About the song Major Tom performed by David Bowie

In Poland it was the first week they are showing "The Secret life..." Music is still in my ears and pictures in my mind. I have been in my work for 16 years- maybe it is the time to go to Afganistan.

    ------ About the song Major Tom performed by David Bowie

I just saw the movie "Secret Life of Walter Mitty". The mean characters compare him to Major Tom, calling him a ditz even though both Major Tom and Walter Mitty were courageous... I just wanted to see the lyrics.

Just Now Learning of this Great Song!! | Reviewer: William Watson
    ------ About the song Major Tom performed by David Bowie

I was born in 1972, and I mostly grew up listening to many soul artist, disco, funk, etc., and I never really ventured into Rock and Roll music and artist such as David Bowie. Well...I just finished seeing:
"The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" (starring Ben Stiller)....And this song:
'Space Oddity'/'Major Tom' was played in one of the scenes. I fell in love with it instantly!! and downloaded it to my music collection immediately!!!! ;-) I must leave my "safety zone"of R&B/Soul more often!!...I catch a good one every now and then from some Hip hop samples( sorry to say)....but i will do more exploration in 2014....!! :-)

Apollo moon pics and stars? | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Major Tom performed by David Bowie

Why no stars in the Apollo Moon Landing photos? It's because of contrast, range of field, and resolution, or lack thereof. Those of us who remember trying to master photography with plastic film and a 35mm lens know what it's like, focusing close, losing the distance, or focusing on the horizon and losing focus of near objects. The contrast is tremendous between the bright white space suits, the glare of the sun on moon-soil, and the subtle points of light of stars. No matter how bright, the contrast drowned them out. And lastly resolution. In the 1960's and '70's even the best 35mm film had limited resolution. Look at those old photos again. Try to see individual grains of moon-soil. The soil looks fuzzy because the limited resolution of the film could not "resolve" or make visual something that small. The stars had an apparent size of a grain of sand. Again, no matter how bright the stars were, their apparent diameter (size) was too small for a 35mm lens to bring them to resolution while focusing on those beautiful images of photographer-in-the-face-guard reflections!

Also, also... If they (The Man) had WANTED to fool us... | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Major Tom performed by David Bowie

If the moon landing had not been real, and someone had wanted to TRICK us into believing, they would have PUT stars in the photos. The fact there are no stars speaks to the reality of resolution, contrast, and field of range. Stars would have been a dead give away to fraud! Would the non-believers be happier if, in the background we could see the Gemini twins drinking from the Big Dipper, or Leo biting the head off Orion?
