This is going to become a depressing topic I think...

I like Joy Division. I go to school pretty much across the road from where Ian Curtis killed himself.

Matthew Sweet - Girlfriend

A lo-fi pop-rock classic from the early 90s and the title track of one of my favourite albums. I was going to post something else, but I thought the thread needed something to lighten it up a bit.

I wouldn't use that one as an icebreaker at parties if I were you Wink.

Anyway, if I can work out how to do links, I'd like to put forward:

And a fine choice Frank. Although I have to say that of the two ballads on "Station to Station" I personally prefer "Word on a Wing". But overall it's an album of rare genius. Smile

It is a splendid album, one of my favourites. And, yes 'Word On A Wing' is effing marvellous. Billy Mackenzie does a truly memorable cover of 'Wild Is The Wind' and I'd have loved him to tackle 'Wing' too.

Oh, 'Heroes' definitely. But I'm more inclined to go for tracks like 'Win', 'Fantastic Voyage', 'Sons Of The Silent Age' and the utterly sublime 'Sound And Vision' over 'It's No Game'. Oh, and off the same album, it has to be 'Teenage Wildlife'. I'm quite fond of his cover of 'Alabama Song' too.

Oh, Bowie...I loves ya.

Three days, three pages and nothing from the Archdrude yet? That needs to be rectified:

You gotta love Tracie's harmonies. Smile

OK my choice for today is David Bowie's version of My Death

Brel's magnificent work is, for me, taken to a new level by Bowie's remarkable performance at the Hammersmith Odeon in July 1973. Having just turned 14, I had seen the tour just a month earlier, and was blown away by this extraordinary performer.

The added poignancy is, of course, that just a short while later Bowie ended the concert by *killing off* his greatest ever creation. He truly prempts one of music's greatest ever shocks and surprises as he sings of Ziggy Stardust's death. Amazing stuff.
