Enough is Enough...  
Even I can get burned-out if I listen to something too much...even David Bowie songs. I don't want to overdo it, but I just can't get anything else to appeal much (and with Brandon and I not seeing each other much due to work and craziness, his usual power to get me out of a rut has weakened). I tried listening to The Streets, Cowboy Bebop music, Modest Mouse, Radiohead...all to no avail. The only thing staying is Bowie, but I don't want to make myself sick of any one album, let alone the whole of his catalogue.

I gotta stop listening to David Bowie.

Specifically, I have to stop listening to Outside.

Specifically, I need to stop getting Strangers When We Meet stuck in my head. I don't know why this one song is staying, but it's been in my head for DAYS ON END. I don't know why...it's not even my favorite song on the album, but it's well-lodged in my brain. I guess if it was good enough for two albums, it should be good enough for my brain, but you know how it is...no matter how good a song is, keep it in your head long enough and it becomes torturous.

A verse of Ugly Casanova's Ice on the Sheets drifted through my head not too long ago at random...maybe I can cultivate it until I can get home and get something else in there.
Mood: sacreligious?
Music: Ice on the Strangers?

If you have the Velvet Goldmine soundtrack, you could listen to that. It's a nice panacea.

That's a good call, even if I don't actually have the album. Nothing a Brandon couldn't find me before lunch ^_^

I've got Hedwig and the Angry Inch, does that count for anything?

It counts for more than you could possibly know.

Have a good one. I did this similar thing with Radiohead for three years. It finally ended a little while back.

I hear that...
Good music feeds the mind, but sometimes it chews too hard and bites its tongue.

there's just something about that album that has that effect...for me it's always "we prick you" that gets lodged.

I'm so glad someone else has such feelings about this album. I have no idea why it gets panned all the time. I think it's definately one of his best. The most frequent lodger in my brain is Thru These Architecht's Eyes, but pretty much every song on the album has its turn to occupy my mind. Strangers When We Meet has just been relentless these last few days though.

Steely resolve is falling from me.
