Of course it was rejected they used Iron Maiden's lettering.
Avatar    Tue. 1/12/16 7:13pm cosmic matrix:

honestly, i like the "intro" the best.
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 7:14pm Marcel M:

Very glad you are doing this Devon. Its amazing the director rejected that track because it seems like a perfect soundtrack piece to me. I read a while back that Bowie had a vision of all these spacey ambient sort of songs but the director didn't share his vision in that regard. The cover of Low is a treated still from the film, I believe, and its one of my favorite record covers.

should be a lovely show.

a good ish article. torontoist.com...

saw 'Christiane F' last night. striking anti-drug propaganda film featuring Bowie's soundtrack. well known songs from his time in Berlin. not all performed by Bowie, i don't think. lovely concert footage.
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 7:20pm Marcel M:

Still haven't seen that, Linda. On my list.
Avatar    Tue. 1/12/16 7:23pm Linda Lee:

very nice film, stylistically. lovely palette. concerns a clueless 13 year old & her quick descent into heroin addiction. the usual horror story.

Thanks, Devon, and WFMU for these nuggets of rare Bowie. This is interesting to hear.
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 7:25pm Devon E. Levins:

Thx for listening All. I'm sure everyone is a little tuckered out of the Bowie tracks at this point but I had to do it. One of my favorite artists of all time, so I need to pay my respects. At least many will be some of these less-played 80s to the 2000s tracks.

good show mr. e. levins. everyone has been trying to delve into the deep cuts but sometimes you just need to indulge in the poppy side of life.
Avatar    Tue. 1/12/16 7:27pm Linda Lee:

i've been away from the radio today & yesterday, so it's fresh for me. i like the soundtrack approach.
Avatar    Tue. 1/12/16 7:37pm Alejandroool:

Great to hear racks I probably wouldn't otherwise.. keeping it fresh, not too Bowie'd out here

My first time listening to your show, and really love and appreciate what you're doing tonight. Great stuff.

Sorry about the bleep

googgled the song - did NOT know johnny mathis was the first to record it in 1959!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/12/16 7:55pm chris:

wow, what a great tribute show. thanks, Devon!
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 7:56pm InBrkly:

I for one am not yet tired of the Bowie tributes. Great selection. Don't remember his contribution to Falcon & the Snowman--that was a pretty quiet movie. Maybe just the credits?
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 7:56pm InBrkly:

LOL at "There's little left when Bowie goes bare-faced"
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 7:57pm TehBadDr:

This is wonderful, thank you.

hi Devon and Thank you.
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 8:00pm rocketrob:

Great version of Space Oddity why you cut that bro?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/12/16 8:00pm melinda:

I haven't tired of Bowie yet either and many of these are new to me. I love the Seu Jorge covers.
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 8:01pm Devon E. Levins:

Thanks All!! More soundtrack fun next week!
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 8:01pm InBrkly:
