Listen to "The Gospel According To Tony Day". This was the b-side to the song "Laughing Gnome". There are also albums out there with such classics on there as "Love Me Till Tuesday" or "Mr. Grave Digger". One of my favourites is the song "The Little Bombadier" - it's funny and sad.
Yes. So if you are a Bowie fan, sort yourself out with his early writings. I can honestly say you won't be disappointed. You will feel like you have just discovered a new artist. It's so mad none of these songs are anything like his latter recordings. Anyway. Have fun with the tunes and play them to your friends. Here's one of my favourites to get you started.
