I've always been a big fan of David Bowie, but with the release of his new album The Next Day (which is great, by the way) I have been listening non stop to every album he has released, which is why this particular Heavy Rotation is so Bowie-tastic.
Sorrow - David Bowie
Hazey Jane II - Nick Drake
Atlantic City - Allo Darlin'
Up The Hill Backwards - David Bowie
Weeping Mary - Elvis Perkins
Footstompin' - David Bowie (I find this one to be a particular gem, as it is from an appearance/interview on the Dick Cavett show. Throughout the interview, Bowie is obviously high, clearly has terrible coke nose, and during the performances you can hear the toll that his drug-use was taking on his voice. I still think he sounds incredible though! There is also a very precious Bowie moment around 2:50 that I cannot get enough of.)
And nothing, nothing will tear us away,
