David Bowie

Welcome to Rock 'n Roll Fridays. We are like other memes in that we will ask you thirteen questions each and every Friday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a singer, band, era or category and pick thirteen of their songs. Each of our questions will be based on the lyrics. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked David Bowie.

1. Space Oddity “Ground control to Major Tom. Take your protein pill and put your helmet on…”
What vitamin or mineral supplement(s) do you take?

2. Changes “And these children that you spit on. As they try to change their worlds, are immune to your consultations. They’re quite aware of what they’re going thru”
What advice or suggestion have you given recently that went unheeded?

3. Starman “There’s a starman waiting in the sky. He’d like to come and meet us, but he thinks he’d blow our minds…”
Do you believe there is intelligent life on other planets that has been monitoring us on earth?

4. Ziggy Stardust “Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly, the Spiders from Mars. He played it left hand, but made it too far. Became the special man, then we were Ziggy’s band”
What is your favorite “fad” singer or band that swooped in with a hit and swooped out 15 minutes of fame?

5. Heroes “I, I will be King, and you, you will be Queen. Though nothing will drive them away. We can beat them just for one day. We can be heroes just for one day…”
Do you think the Royals should remain in England as sovereign rulers?

6. Fame “Fame makes a man take things over. Fame, lets him loose, hard to swallow. Fame puts you where things are hollow…”
For you, what would be the worst part about being famous?

7. Ashes to Ashes “I never done good things, I never done bad things, I never did anything out of the blue…”
Name a good thing and a bad thing you did recently.

8. Fashion “Fashion! Turn to the left! Fashion! Turn to the right! Ooooooh, Fashion! We are the goon squad and we’re coming to town, beep beep!”
What is the last fashionable item you bought?

9. Let’s Dance “Let’s dance to the song they’re playin on the radio…Let’s sway while color lights up your face, let’s sway, sway thru the crowd to an empty space…”
When was the last time you slow-danced with someone and what was the song?

10. China Girl “I could escape this feeling with my china girl. I feel a wreck without my china girl…”
What is your favorite Chinese dish?

11. Modern Love “Never gonna fall for modern love walks beside m, modern love walks on by. Modern love gets me to the church on time…”
What is different about modern dating /relationships from what you did as a teenager?

12. Cat People “See these eyes so green, I can stare for a thousand years. Colder than the moon…”
What is your least favorite thing about cats?

13. Rebel Rebel “You love bands when they’re playin hard. You want more and you want it fast. They put you down, they say I’m wrong. You tacky thing, you put them on”
What do you like about your wildest friend or acquaintance?
