I just got this set, And I must say, I quite like it so far! I'm on track six ("Starman") at the moment and it's all been pretty good! What does everyone else think of it?

Ahh bowie... My mom made the mistake of buying me one of those "Oh the century is ending books" in 1999, I saw him and fell in love with his gorgeousity... and the fact that they called him "Androgenous Rocker David Bowie".
Hunky Dory got me hooked.

I'm quite fond of "Young Americans"......and I never knew this before...but..I never knew David Bowie was the original singer of "Across the universe" because I remember I heard a more recent version of it...strange....this week, I've found out a lot of songs that were covered..like for instance...No Doubt's new single "It's my life" was actually an 80's song, but, I forgot the singer....too many covers I must say..and why does Sheryl Crow have to do a cover of "The first cut is the deepest" when it was covered by Rod Stewart which was orginally sung by Cat Stevens....please, if a cover of a song was already made...don't think you could make it better...sorry for getting off topic but it sort of realates to my orginal comment....

Hmm, I bought that collection when it was first released and must say that I find his songs either hit or miss. I had previously purchased HUNKY DORY and loved it. 'Life On Mars' is probably my fave Bowie track.

"Didn't he also compose a track for lennon?.. or was it the other way around."

He recorded 'Fame' with Lennon.

In addition to that: He wrote AND recorded Fame WITH Lennon, re-recorded Across The Universe WITH Lennon (both on the Young Americans album) and the other Lennon-link is the Tin Machine cover-version of Working Class Hero.

Anyway: yeah Bowie is da man! He's my absolute number two of all time after Queen since the late eighties. Saw him three times on tour last year and I've got tickets for three more shows this summer! Yihaa!!

The Best DVD is quite nice, yes. Although I am not a big fan of most of his video's I have to say. The first dvd is cool and the second half of the second dvd2 is killer. (First because of the old stuff, just his best songs and the second because I find especially the Outside and Earthling video's some of the better video's ever made by any artist. I always skip his eighties stuff though ;-)
Did you guys all find the numerous easter eggs on the dvd? They are hard to find. If you don't succeed, I could get you some cheats to find them. They're worth it!

Yesss... I got that... and I LOVE "Fame"-- it's definitely my favorite track on there because it's just SUCH a cool song. :)

Brandon-- they grow on you if you give em time

i remember with space oddity-- loving it right away-- thought the rest was wierd and well not worthy of listening--

here it is a *ahem* few years later--and Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed-- Cygnet Committe-wild eyed boy- are among my Bowie favs--

hell even the Berlin period is starting to grow on me a bit *LOL* that i thought would never..never...never happen......

Hey Iron Eagle ;-) I love those tracks too!!
You're right. Every Bowie song has to grow on ya. Ever since the first Tin Machine album, Everytime a new album comes out I run like crazy to the shop, come home, close the blins, unplug the telephone, turn off the lights and listen in absolute excitement. Rarely, I mean VERY RARELY a Bowie album hit me the first time of listening.
I remember very well being very very very disappointed with Heathen and Reality and a bit depressed after the first time I played them. Now, of course, they are both very okay and pretty high up the ladder of Bowie fav's. A Bowie album in my opinion(and I do mean an ALBUM in it's entirety) deserves at least three or four spins before they strike a chord. (Some need more ;-) It took me 10 spins of Outside before I got it, although I was very intrigued by the album already at the first time)
I bless you madly ;-)))
