And I'm busting up my brains for the words...
Here's the latest round-up of first week chart positions for Reality. Apart from a baker's dozen of Top Ten placings, the album has now entered the Billboard Top Thirty in the US.
Reality also went straight in at number one in the Billboard European Top 100 Albums chart!
Here's the latest breakdown in order of chart positions:
Ireland #6 (With the Best Of Bowie at #10 in the same chart!)
New Zealand #16
To celebrate all this good news we have a jolly groovy competition to win Reality related, signed-by-David Bowie goodies. We have ten double-sided bookmark-sized Reality bookmarks, ten 61cmx41cm (24"x16") Riverside posters and one beautiful (the picture below really does it no justice) 35cmx35cm (almost 14"x14") Reality canvas... all pictured here and all signed by David Bowie this month.
OK, it's another fun, but time-consuming, and no doubt irritating-for-some competition that I've dreamt up this time. I've taken the eleven Reality songs titles...
01 New Killer Star
02 Pablo Picasso
03 Never Get Old
04 The Loneliest Guy
05 Looking For Water
06 She'll Drive The Big Car
08 Fall Dog Bombs The Moon
09 Try Some, Buy Some
11 Bring Me The Disco King
...and I've rearranged them into eleven new titles using words contained in the original eleven titles, thus:
01 Killer The King
02 Some Big Moon
03 Water Bombs
04 Try Looking, Pablo
05 Loneliest Drive
06 She'll Never Buy Some
07 Disco Days
08 Get The Picasso
09 Dog Guy Star
10 Bring The Old Car
11 The New Me
The thing is, I didn't use all of the words from the original eleven titles and what you have to do is find those words that I didn't use. But, that alone would be far too easy.
So, when you've found the missing words, you then have to find a David Bowie song that contains all of those missing words in a single line from that particular song. Then all you have to do is tell me the name of that song... It couldn't be easier!
When you think you have that song title, send an e-mail to me at TotalBlamBlam@davidbowie.com with a subject line of: Missing Words. Usual rules apply, BowieNet user name must be supplied, etc.
This contest will end at midnight GMT next Friday, and I'll announce the 21 winners sometime over the following weekend. The Reality canvas will be won by the first name selected by TRG, followed by ten poster winners and then ten bookmark winners.
