I’m not that into space (I have nothing against it) but even I must admit this is a tremendous accomplishment, and it somewhat puts my many mandatory car sing-alongs of the song to shame.
Lou Reed, Mick Jagger and David Bowie
I’ll be honest. I needed this this morning.
David Bowie w/ Elizabeth Taylor
Tilda Swinton w/ Meryl Streep
Nothing matters anymore but this.
Gary Oldman, David Bowie and Edward Norton
Gary Oldman and David Bowie are married and combine their genes to create their son, Edward Norton. Now he’s all grown up and something something something make this movie.
I can’t be the only person who daydreams about Tilda Swinton playing David Bowie in the inevitable biopic, right?
“Oh no love, you’re not alone.”
- David Bowie, Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide
So there’s this.
I have some things to note:
- So excited that she’s recording “You and I,” which I’ve been steadily falling in love with. I wish Gaga would parade out her inner Elton John/Freddy Mercury more often.
- She and RedOne are BFFs, I guess. (You’ll recognize him from the beginning of “Just Dance,” where he says his name, Jason Derulo-style.) He produced “Bad Romance,” too, though, so I can’t complain.
- A.) There’s a song called “Hooker on a Church Corner,” because OF COURSE there is. B.) I have to assume that the “Fair” with a co-writing credit is Ron Fair, the A&R exec who discovered Christina Aguilera, served on the judging panel for that heinous Next Pussycat Doll CW show that killed Veronica Mars, and has some vague professional history with my father which gives me hope that I will get to meet him someday. But more importantly, I just learned from his Wiki page that Fair engineered and produced Gaga’s “Speechless,” a.k.a. The Song I Wish Lady Gaga Sounded Like Almost All the Time. So, in conclusion, this gives me a lot of hope.
- “Jerkins” on “Someone Save Me Tonight” is obviously Rodney Jerkins. Obviously.
- Wikipedia also informs me that Teddy Riley was in Blackstreet. Okay.
- Here’s Fernando Garibay’s production discography. Highlights include what seems like all of Enrique Iglesias’ singles, Jordan Knight’s “Give It To You” (the catchiest pop song about date rape ever), Pussycat Doll’s “Bottle Pop” (the world’s most convoluted sex metaphor), and perhaps most notably, Paris Hilton’s “Stars Are Blind.” But I suppose the relevant info is that he also had a hand in some live Gaga remixes (“Paparazzi” on SNL and “Alejandro” on American Idol), plus The Fame Monster’s dancetastic (in kind of a bad way) “Dance in the Dark,” so that’s interesting.
- But most importantly: SHE’S COLLABORATING WITH DAVID BOWIE. Bartender, can I get a round of “DUH” and “WOOOO” for my friends here?
My friend here knows an assload about pop music, and is also entirely correct when it comes to “most importantly.” David Bowie you guys. Lady Gaga. I don’t want to hyperbolize here, but this will obviously be our generation’s Under Pressure (just kidding) (not really).
Actually, quick second thought: To recreate the Under Pressure magic, what if Lady Gaga collaborated with Mika? Or at least what if the two of them covered Under Pressure, with Gaga as Bowie and Mika as Mercury? This thought is getting away from me, but the point is that this is exciting.
historicalfuture asked: are all cops racist or do they just enforce a racist social order?
What’s the difference?
Anonymous asked: sorry but merely identifying as a woman doesnt make you a woman
sorry if i’m missing something but what else do you need?
We assume you saw the VERY EXCITING “Bob’s Buskers” video of St. Vincent covering a song from the “Bad Tina” episode? And that you’re looking...
