Oh You Pretty Things – Song Notes

I’ve loved David Bowie’s music ever since I discovered the Changesonebowie 8-track in my sisters music collection when I was 9 or 10. But I never really dug into the catalog much beyond the hits. So when Paul Mahern suggested his song “Oh You Pretty Things” for ECHOES, I’m not sure I’d ever even heard it before. […]
