"I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanence. And so the days float through my eyes, but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on, as they try to change their worlds, are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware what they're going through."

That quote is very special to me. - PetSounds

This song heralds the arrival of a saviour for earth on Bowie's 1972 masterpiece, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. - PetSounds

The best song ever. Uplifting. Beautiful pitch changes in the chorus, stunning lyrics... What more can you ask for?

8The Man Who Sold the World

"We passed upon the stair
We spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there
He said I was his friend
Which came as some surprise
I spoke into his eyes
'I thought you died alone
A long, long time ago. '
Oh no. Not me.
I've never lost control.
You're face. To face.
With the man who sold the world."

Who knew that sheer, unadulterated weirdness could be so uplifting. - PetSounds
