My Life According To David Bowie {Blogtoberfest 3/31}

I should probably be marking (groan) but .... this is such a fun meme to do was around ages ago and I made a note to join in ... but then a gazillion years went by and it has languished as a title without a post in my draft folder  ...

So, with all this Blogtoberfesting going on, I thought I'd finally get down to it.

Using only song titles from ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions.  
Try not to repeat a song title. It's a lot harder than you think!

I've picked David Bowie because his voice absolutely fits his music. I have no trouble remembering Bowie lyrics from 30 years ago ... they are indelibly fixed in the sound..

This is something that is really heightened by my synaesthesia . Some music is just a perfect woven mix of texture and colour for me. Beethoven, cellos and funk also do it for me ...

When I say woven texture I mean it quite literally.  My listening experience is like a big loom, where as the music progresses I see the warp and weft combine to form a fabric which is the whole piece.

There are plenty of songs that I could hear a trillion times without ever knowing, or even hearing the words.  If there isn't a balance for me the weave of the music will overpower the lyrics completely ... 

Anyway, here we go ...
