Watching Golden Smog cover Starman the other night has gotten me into a Bowie mood. And when I get to my house later today, I am going to put my vinyl copy of Hunky Dory on the turntable and turn it up.
I love Hunky Dory, almost as much as Ziggy Stardust, which is on my top 50.
Hunky Dory came out right before Ziggy, during the early 70s, when Bowie was at his artistic peak.
Hunk Dory is not nearly as much of a rock record, to me it’s a pop/folk record. It starts out with Changes which is probably the most played Bowie song ever. But it’s songs like Oh You Pretty Things, Life on Mars, and Andy Warhol that make this record so special.
I can’t wait until I get home and give it a listen.
