Coolest human being ever. Only Bowie could make such a captivating video just by standing in a white room and lip-syncing.

Furthermore, Bowie is probably the only human being in history who could look like a top-shelf fashion plate while rocking a world-class mullet, I mean look at that thing, it's a textbook damn mullet and yet Bowie looks so cool in it because he INVENTED it.

How was this not up already? Damn. Best image in Bowie's career.

This is the period where David Bowie did his best work.

Agreed, and I'll add that Hunky Dory is his best album. Anyone who says one of the Berlin trilogy was better is either a contrarian or a hipster.

This song gives me the chills every time I hear it. Absolutely brilliant. Bowie is definitely one of the top 10 artists (in any medium) of the 20th century.

From Wikipedia...

"When Bowie was fifteen years old, his friend, George Underwood, wearing a ring on his finger, punched him in the left eye during a fight over a girl. Bowie was forced to stay out of school for eight months so that doctors could conduct operations to repair his potentially blinded eye. Doctors could not fully repair the damage, leaving his pupil permanently dilated. As a result of the injury, Bowie has faulty depth perception. Bowie has stated that although he can see with his injured eye, his colour vision was mostly lost and a brownish tone is constantly present. The colour of the irises is still the same blue, but since the pupil of the injured eye is wide open, the colour of that eye is commonly mistaken to be different. Despite the fight, Underwood and Bowie remained good friends, and Underwood went on to do the artwork for Bowie's earlier albums."

Also, seconding the call that Hunky Dory is the best Bowie Album.

Yes. This is one of many strong songs on the album but as a whole I have to go with Aladin Sane.

I love finding pre-EvilHomer posts where I can just enjoy the vid and not be slapped with a wall of exposition about his negative opinions on David Bowie.
