Week 19:

1. Heathen by David Bowie
Got this LP at Cash4Chaos, a little punk rock store near the university. $8. This LP is selling for around $70 on Amazon.com. Pretty sweet. This is one of Bowie’s best albums, from 2002. It’s a very dark and moody album. Not that anyone cares my opinion.

2. Blue Valentine by Tom Waits
“Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minnenapolis” is my favorite Christmas song.

3. Hunky Dory by David Bowie
“Queen Bitch,” “Life on Mars?” “Oh! You Pretty Things,” “Changes.” Great album.

4. Diamond Dogs by David Bowie
Another great Bowie album. Many of the songs were written to be a part of a musical based on George Orwell’s 1984. The musical was never made but the songs exist.

5. Heartattack and Vine by Tom Waits
Got this the same day I got the Heathen record. I love this CD. A perfect bridge between Tom Wait’s gritty lounge music to his hard-driving bluesy avant garde theatrics. I consider this to be his “Station to Station.”
