  1. Yes, yes, yes. I forgot about that song for awhile but Thursday's Child is absolutely fantastic indeed. One year ago, I bought it for five euro as a CD single at a collectors fair and I listened to it on my old PlayStation, that song was amazing. I also really like the rock version and I think it was also included to the CD single. There was a letter in German about the song too. It's pretty cool. Thursday's Child is really a song I can listen to, while I put on my scented sticks on the background, close my eyes and just enjoy the music.
  2. Wow, I never really heard someone that really likes Black Tie White Noise that much. I didn't hear all those songs on that album and I only know Jump They Say but that's a pretty good song. Also a very emotional and deep song, if you think about it that it's about his schizophrenic half brother Terry that killed himself after he escaped from an asylum.
  3. Yes, they added songs from his pre-Young Americans sessions to WCIBN, they made a whole album of it, they even made a cover art and that kind of stuff. Pretty cool. It's called The Gouster, but they also included other songs in WCIBN. I think it's on Spotify too so you should probably check it out. I personally think that Low is an amazing album because it's so different than everything he made, it's very new and unique. It's definitely in my top three favorite albums made by David Bowie. I can understand that you think it's boring but I can appreciate that album. He made a few of the songs on Low for the movie The Man Who Fell To Earth and they only added one song to the movie, I think he was very angry when that happened because he put so much effort into making that album.
  4. Before he died, I was hoping that he would go on tour for his album Blackstar but I was skeptical about it because he was already so old. The Next Day is really good by the way. I really like the songs The Next Day, The Stars Are Out Tonight, Love is Lost, Where Are We Now, If You Can See Me, I'd Rather Be High and You Feel So Lonely You Could Die. But it's cool that your mother's friend met David Bowie and Iggy Pop. I assume that it must've been during the time when he was in Berlin? Or was he visiting England again?
  5. Cat People, China Girl, Blue Jean are a few of his great songs. Blue Jean is so good, when I am in a good place and if I would feel good, I think I could totally freak out and dance like no one is watching while listening to it. It has great vibes. After you mentioned When The Wind Blows I started listening to it on Spotify, and it's a great song indeed. By the way, I used to know someone that used to work for Mojo Concerts. We were talking about David Bowie and he mentioned to me that he was hired for all of the European concerts that David Bowie was having during a specific time. I think it was in the late eighties, so it might've been the Glass Spiders Tour. He used to build up the stage for him as work. I also know someone else which works as a lorry driver, and he drove to concert venue to concert venue for big stars. He even drove for Coldplay and Justin Bieber, sounds like amazing work. Maybe I should beg my mother to ask if he's going to drive for Lady Gaga that he could get some stuff signed for me.
  6. I think I know where you are talking about but I haven't listened to that complication album yet. I really started listening his music from the almost beginning to the end of his discography so usually I tend to skip the complication albums and just listen to the normal ones. I did buy Nothing has Changed with two CD's included, it's great when you are listening to music with your family and you just want to let them hear the popular, mainstream songs. Tonight has some great songs by the way, I absolutely adore the collaboration between David Bowie and Tina Turner with their song Tonight. But it's great that they added more lesser loved songs to them, because sometimes people tend to overlook them while some of them can be really beautiful. I think they added Sue to Nothing has Changed as well but I prefer the Blackstar version.
  7. Today I almost had an heart attack at a second hand store. I was looking around there and I was looking at the vintage CD section. Basically, some guy was selling some old CD's and I thought hey, let me look in there. So then, I found Low by David Bowie and it was only five euro. If you don't know me well enough, I am a super David Bowie fan and I was super shocked. Normally, that CD would be sold for 20 euro at a store without the foil on it. It's an very amazing CD too with songs that are amazing. I am almost broke now but it was worth it.
  8. I think his long time music producer Tony Visconti once said that he has a lot of material left and that he would dig into it. In 2016 he was talking to his management about releasing stuff and he said there's going to be some great Bowie stuff coming out in the coming years. While I am happy that they are going to release more of his unreleased material, I am kinda skeptical about it. It kinda feels like they are using his death to sell more stuff. In the year he died, they released one complication album with an unreleased album The Gouster and they released another complication album, they made a full complication album a few years ago called Nothing has Changed and almost the same literally counts for that album, they only added a few new songs and put some polish on it to make it shiny just to make some money.
  9. In case you didn't know yet, David Bowie's team released an EP with three unreleased tracks from the Blackstar recording sessions. They were added first to the Lazarus Musical CD as promotion so I guess it would sell better. They also released a music video for the song No Plan on his vevo YouTube channel.
  10. They say that Pin Ups is his worst album but I never listened to it. Never Let Me Down was commercially a flop but it has some alright songs on it.
  11. Great news that you want to start to listen David Bowie's discography! But that's a difficult question because it depends on your own personal taste, I personally really like Young Americans, Station to Station, Low, Heroes, Lodger, Scary Monsters and Super Creeps, Outside, Earthling, The Next Day, Blackstar and No Plan. I tend to skip the early albums but some of the songs on them are alright, but then again, it depends on your own personal taste.
