Afraid

“I wish I was a little bit taller…”

Do you believe in Beatles, or do you just believe in John? We discuss Bowie’s ironic twist on the comforts of delusion in the face of self-doubt. We stumble through the lyrics to Skee-Lo’s 1995 hit song “I Wish.” Thomas forgets the name of Psych-101 shibboleth Maslow. (Bad college graduate!) And just how hard is it to lock Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in a room together?

Gather your resolve, and confront (or at least ignore) your deepest existential fears. It’s From A To Ziggy!

Across The Universe

“It is David Bowie being the Bowiest he could possibly be.”

Like Superman and Batman. Like Fred Flintsone and George Jetson. Like peanut butter and bananas. Seldom does a meeting of such colossal importance shake the foundations of what we previously imagined possible as when David Bowie met John Lennon.

Ending our week on a high note, we discuss this epic Bowie/Lennon collaboration (no, not that one). We also mention Beck, Jon Brion, and I ♥︎ Huckabees. Plus, find out who doesn’t actually like Let It Be!
