Hey babe, your hair's all right
Hey babe, let's go out tonight"
--David Bowie, "Rebel Rebel"

It has recently come to my attention that some people on LiveJournal do not know their Bowie lyrics. This is an unspeakable tragedy. Who else has ever written an opening couplet as brilliant as the one quoted above? What other middle-aged male singer would dare try to fake the voice of a 14-year-old girl in a lengthy spoken segue like the Baby Grace segue on David's 1995 1. Outside album? And who else on the entire planet has ever been half as beautiful as this?

I shall go seek solace among my fellow BowieNet members now.
