Ever since my last post "Panic in New York" I have had the David Bowie song "Panic in Detroit" stuck in my head. And we all know the best way to get a song out of your head is to actually listen to the song.
I searched and searched my 400+ CD's and came up with nothing. This might not be a big deal to most people, but if you knew me in my youth, you know that I used to LIVE for Bowie, I worshiped the man and his music. For ME to not own a single David Bowie CD is shameful. I do still have a box in the back of my closet that houses my entire Bowie collection on vinyl, but that does me absolutely no good since I don't have a record player.
Naturaly, I decided it's time to get some Bowie in my collection. The problem was deciding which of his hundreds of albums to start with. I'm certainly a fan of his earlier works, the Ziggy Stardust era in particular. But I ultimately decided on the "best of bowie" which covers over two decades of brilliant music.
Not only was this purchase essential to my music well-being, but it also served as a reward to myself. You see, I have been on a major diet the last few weeks and I finally reached my first "milestone". I have been working very hard and I think I have the will power to go the distance and reach my ultimate goal. I'm very proud of myself!
