Bowie dropping the F-bomb in two of his last 10 songs!

By my reckoning, he only dropped it three times in his entire recording career!

(5 points for anyone who can name the other occasion I'm thinking of - I say "the other occasion I'm thinking of" because I bet it was more than three and I'm wrong)

Correct, and currently my favourite Bowie album.

He swore like a trooper on the first Tin Machine album. Check out "Crack City" for some hilarious profanity - it was sure to scare off the last of his Let's Dance-era fans.
As for Killing A Little Time, I think it's the best of the 3 new tracks - the only one perhaps that measures up to anything on Blackstar. My missus wasn't impressed, mind: "What's that noise? Sounds like it's from a horror film". God bless the girl...

I'm listening to the Lazarus soundtrack now.

Sophia Caruso's version of No Plan is stunning - better than Bowie's. That's hardly surprising, as it was written for her character.

So now that I've listened a few times...

When I Met You: Sounds like a bonus track from The Next Day. Not bad, but I can see why it was overlooked for Blackstar.

No Plan: I really like it. Tempting to read into the lyrics..."am I nowhere now"...but ultimately it was written for the musical I suppose.

Killing A Little Time: Likewise. "I've got a few songs to sing, to sting your soul, to fuck you over". I like to think he did it on purpose. This is the most Blackstar-sounding track I think.

I overlooked it for a long time! There are still Bowie albums that I've not properly listened to. By 'properly', I mean at least once a day for 2+ weeks. Many of his albums have had that treatment, some for much longer than 2 weeks!

I saw Lazarus at the weekend:

- Very weird. I don't think I could explain the plot, really.
- Good singing, good acting, Dexter was very good, and the young girl (Sophia Caruso) in it was excellent.
- It's worth watching The Man Who Fell To Earth first. I re-watched it a couple of days before the show and it helped. It was still hard to follow the plot, but I think without the film background, it would have been nigh on impossible.

I hope this doesn't mean there won't be a "Blackstar Deluxe" soon. I've read there were some 15-16 songs recorded for BS. So that leaves 5 or 6 more. It makes sense that they released these three songs on the OST since they were used in the play.

"Blackstar" has become my 3rd favorite Bowie album. I want to hear the complete sessions. He really was reaching another peak.
