David Bowie – Changes
Today’s Quote: “I’m not going to tell her. You just show up with it and let her be mad. You just say, ‘I’m sorry. I lost the receipt.’ ” — Dyron Mack, a married, 35-year-old computer analyst, plans a fait accompli strategy on the homefront once he gets a PlayStation 3.
I read yesterday that Doogie Howser is gay. Gosh, I don’t know what to think. I also read that the Vulcan “Live Long and Prosper” greeting comes from a Hebrew blessing symbol. I guess it makes sense. According to Adam Sandler, Leonard Nimoy is Jewish.

This song started out as a parody of a nightclub song – a kind of throwaway – but people kept chanting for it at concerts. Bowie had no idea it was going to become such a hit. Bowie wrote it at a time when he started feeling comfortable writing songs. It became Bowie’s theme song, as he embraced change and kept updating his look. Bowie once appeared on stage with a circus elephant called “Changes.” Rick Wakeman, who became a member of Yes, played the piano parts at the beginning and end. Bowie played the sax, and Mick Ronson arranged the strings.
