Bowie video day (Dinah Shore show)

Since my blog is devoted in part to David Bowie, I decided to start a Bowie video day once a week. You can watch or skip it, as you choose, but it will be fun for me to revisit some of his material.

These rare videos are from the Dinah Shore Show when David Bowie was a guest along with Henry Winkler (the Fonz) and Nancy Walker. Enjoy!

Here, he performs the superb song, Stay, from the Stationtostation album. Notice the fancy dance moves.

Also from the same show, here's a karate lesson. . .

I can take or leave David Bowie as I've never been a popular music fan (give me country and western).

However, I found it interesting to see Dinah Shore again. My mother went to high school with Dinah at Hume Fogg High School in Nashville, Tennessee.

Thanks for sharing the videos! I learned about your blog from All Horse Stuff - she told me to stop in after I had posted the Bowie and Bing video at Christmas on my blog. I love horses and share a love of Bowie era rock. My six degrees would have to be rock lyrics in general - I try to start all posts with a lyric that has been tumbling in my head that day!!! Bowie lyrics often twist about in our household - my husband and I are lyric jokers! (Example - we have a friend named Carl Socolow - which of course accidently became Carl "Sock on the Jaw"!)
Anyway - I love your blog and look forward to more video!

I've always liked Bowie and his music. He's a great artist and talent. He seems so young in these videos, but so was I back then. I actually remember the Dinah Shore show, even though I was a mere child in '75 and just out of high school for a few years.

I have always thought he was a little creepy--I don't know why I thought that. I guess I don't know enough about him. I did find the first video really interesting. Crazy how he's shy. Fascinating his views on love and it being an obsessive thing.

Who knew?!

Fun stuff.

Don't feel bad, many people hold prejudice against Bowie. This period, he was coming off of cocaine addiction and was seriously underweight, however many people say he was at his artistic peak.
He is a very kind person in real life, devoted to his wife, children, and fans. He is also a very smart businessman AND very talented. Noone can truly say they don't care for his music because he plays all kinds, from classical and jazz instrumental to heavy industrial drum and bass. He is defined by Americans as a queer, 'strange' musician and has never been able to fully break that misnomer.
