43. Golden Years – David Bowie

Its taken a while for me to write this as I wanted to pick the right song….and I have chosen Golden Years.

I’m sure this has happened to everyone (except die hard Bowie fans) that you love this song you have heard by one of your favourite artists, only to realise its actually a David Bowie track.

My experience of this is with Golden Years. I got the soundtrack to Dead Man on Campus, not the best movie, but amazing soundtrack. On it is Marilyn Manson’s cover version of Golden Years. Clueless me thought it was his own song. The year was 1998 when I was 23 years old, not realising the song actually came out about 2 months after I was born in 1975. I’m not sure when I made this discovery as to who the original artist was but it was not a surprise.

This just proves to me that he is an amazing artist and his music does not age. It was great when it was released, its great now and will be in the future when my daughter is um 40 like me!!!!

You will be missed. RIP.

42. Little Green Bag – George Baker

This is one of my favourite songs from the movie soundtrack for Reservoir Dogs. I watched it a few months back with a friend and although the blood looked a bit faker than I remember, still a pretty awesome movie. And this song is too….I would never have been exposed to music like this if it hadn’t been for Tarantino films like this. Brilliant!
