That's a mighty big word for a fifty nine year old...
David Bowie is 59 today and he's pictured above in his last few hours as a 58-year-old with Iman, as the couple arrived to celebrate Rolling Stone Magazine's Jann Wenner's birthday in New York last night.
You may be wondering what the hell today's lyric quotation has to do with anything apart from having David's age crow-barred into it...well, nothing really. But, it did get me wondering what the biggest word David has used in one of his recordings might be, and so far the best I've managed is words with 13 letters...which the titles Revolutionary Song and Subterraneans both share, and indeed, so does the word conversations from Algeria Touchshriek.
Can anybody out there better that? There may be something in it if we have an outright overall winner.
The BowieNet MBs Bowie Birthday thread is already bulging with well wishes, and if you're a member you can add yours by going
Heather M of the Speed of Life website has also set up an area for non-BowieNet members to wish David a Happy Birthday,
Anyway, even if you've posted in one of the birthday threads already, I know you'll still want to join me in sending David much love and many happy returns of the day...(whatever they are).
NB: BowieNetter juliedawn was the first to locate the words psychodelicate (Because You're Young) and transformation (Star) which contain fourteen letters each. Send us your address you clever lass, and we'll send you something for your trouble.
