Bowie Week: Wednesday

Leon Takes Us Outside
David Bowie was born on January 8th 1947. It was a Wednesday. Oddly, there are no Wednesday songs in the Bowie catalogue. The closest I could find was the introduction to his highly experimental concept album 'Outside'. Recorded with Brian Eno and released in 1995, it remains one of Bowie's most challenging works. This track mentions Wednesday several times. Honest it does. No other days are mentioned that I can make out, that makes it Wednesday's song, though admittedly I was scraping the barrel a bit. Still infinitely better than anything on 'Never Let Me Down' though...

  1. Ah, the lack of love for NLMD continues 30 years on. Even on Bowie's most pissed-upon albums, there are always some gems.
