Of course! I'll admit I haven't heard that song in a while... ahdn_paul_06a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

While I'm here, I guess I'll say I really love Home Tonight. a-hard-days-night-paul-7 My favourite of the two new songs, although the intro to In A Hurry I like because it sounds like something off The Beach Boys ' Wild Honey album!

That is another great one. I especially love the part where Bowie almost raps beginning in the second verse..

That part is so fun a-hard-days-night-john-6

I occasionally annoy my family members by singing weirdass Bowie songs with gusto and 'Blackout' is a premiere Candidate (Sweet Thing) for such treatment. ahdn_john_08_gif

Currently not on a specific song kick per se, but my family has been watching TRON and TRON: Legacy, and I've been grooving to their soundtracks (by Wendy Carlos and Daft Punk, respectively; Daft Punk's is particularly epic and I've listened to it repeatedly since last night).

Those "Heroes" tracks are great  - I think noisy prog-funk David is my second-favourite Bowie, next to genderbending space rocker...

Prog-funk and cocaine-addled fascist Bowie are my favourites. Dark times for him, I know, but I'll be damned if that wasn't some great music.

Anyway, I've been on a kick of this song for two days now:

At the time of writing, I am going through a lot of Bowie's discography. I am thinking of listening to "Super Creeps" soon, is it good?

Also, are there any threads where I can post hot takes?

@CakeMaestor Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) is quite like the first side of "Heroes" except even noisier. I consider it his last great arty album of the 70s, even though it was released in 1980. As for hot takes, I dunno... depends on the kind/controversy level but I think the derail thread tends to be a catch-all for random takes.

As for me, not specific song kick per se but the whole Fistful Of Mercy album As I Call You Down is really rolling my wheels right now. Thanks @AppleScruffJunior john-lennon-salute_gif

I’ve been on a huge Brainwashed kick (the album), specifically with The Rising Sun.

Hot take: I think "Heroes" is better than "Low". Almost every album ranking, threads and posts says otherwise. I just think that "Heroes" is a much better realization on the whole foundation of the Berlin Trilogy, and overall is just more consistent. I also think that there are better tracks, ie: "Beauty and the Beast", "Joe the Lion", "V2 Schneider", etc.

I've found a specific song kick: the closing track, 'With Whom You Belong'. Beautiful.

I haven't been able to get enough of Because lately. It's such a tasteful slice of mystical cosmic perfection. I think it's my new favorite Beatles song. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

That Means A Lot has been stuck in my head for the past two days and I've been listening to it nonstop. I keep thinking about what it would have sounded like if they would've cleaned it up, improved it, and released it. I'm really stuck on Paul's growls in it. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Wow. a-hard-days-night-ringo-11That’s a serious honor.

I’m currently on a huge kick of End Of The Line, which is definitely my favorite Wilburys song. I KNOW IT’S MAINSTREAM* BUT IT’S SO GOOD

*for the Wilburys

Whilst I do think "Heroes" is better than "Low", I would say "Low" has the best song in the Berlin Trilogy.

Side note: "Because " is absolutely beautiful. Most people would think of "Come Together " when John is brought up alongside "Abbey Road ", but I often found "Because " to be just as good, if not even better. Though I don't think it's as good as "I Want You (She's So Heavy)", but that's my personal opinion. Feel free to disagree.

"Long-Haired Lady" has been plaguing me for the past few days and I've been listening to it over and over. God , do I love Ram
