Georg - [ Andy Warhol looks a scream, Hang him on my wall ] Record 15, With my Second album by Bowie is Hunky Dory, his fourth studio album released in the december of 1971. Time chose this album as part of their top 100 albums of all time and was cosidered one of Bowie’s best works. The best songs on this album in my opinion are “oh! you pretty things”, a song which is considered to be similar and often compared with the Beatles “Martha my dear” during the opening piano and Bowies vocals. “Andy Warhol” is another one of my favourites from this record. David actually sent an advanced copy of “Andy Warhol” and also performed it live for him, but due to his typicaly minimal reaction, He was unsure whether be he liked it or not. A third song from this album is “Kooks”. This song was written for Bowies New born son, Duncan Jones and The British Indie band, The Kooks, actually names themselves after the song! Before being studio recorded, it was recorded on a bbc in concert show with John peel on the third of June 1971. Each song on this record is amazing in its own way, and for that reason i can confidently say that this is my favourite album released by Bowie!
