Sorry, Millennials, only Boomers can match these early David Bowie songs to the right albums

Do you know any songs from his debut in 1967?

David Bowie was just as famous for his look and persona as he was for his music. But the iconic cosmic, glam-rock style was only one part of a long career. His self-titled debut came out in 1967 (not to be confused with his next self-titled album in 1969) and while it’s certainly off-the-wall, its sound is very rooted in the Sixties.

We’ve taken 12 songs from four early Bowie albums: David Bowie from 1967, Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and Aladdin Sane. Some are well-known hits, others only the biggest fans will know. Millennials may be bringing back vinyl, but we think only Boomers can ace this quiz.

Are you a David Bowie fan? Try to match his early songs from the Sixties and Seventies to the right albums!

  1. Moonage Daydream
  2. Rubber Band
  3. Changes
  4. Watch That Man
  5. Silly Boy Blue
  6. Starman
  7. Drive-In Saturday
  8. Oh! You Pretty Things
  9. Love You Till Tuesday
  10. Suffragette City
  11. The Prettiest Star
  12. Quicksand

Sorry, Millennials, only Boomers can match these early David Bowie songs to the right albums

Obviously I'm not a David Bowie fan. But I am an MeTV fan. So as a loyalist I took the quiz anyway and made of fool of myself. And I didn't get so much as a thank you.

12/12 but make it more difficult with more than four albums to choose from! Bowie was the best. Miss his style.

8/12. “Moonage Daydream” might as well be “Daydream Believer” since David Bowie’s real name is David Jones....lol.
But, being a Monkees fan, I’ll take this time to mention a lesser known album by a “David Jones” who is more familiar to me. Did you know that Davy Jones had an album before he was a Monkee? Yup! It was called....well...”David Jones” 😄.

Here’s a song from it that fits right in with his persona on the Monkees he would soon have. It’s called “Put Me Amongst the Girls” 😜



By the way, you might notice from the photo that this album is from the Colpix Record Label. That is also the same record label that a certain “Michael Blessing” was on. You might know him better from the name he used later though....Michael Nesmith. Yes. Davy Jones and Michael Nesmith were on the same record label before they even knew each other. But, It’s gets even more Twilight Zone-ish. Davy Jones and Michael Nesmith also share a Birthday, different years, but the same day; December 30th. 😳

Loved the Mr. Ed clip! I kinda have a thing for Clint Eastwood. 😊
texasluva MaryAnn 1 month ago
Thank you. I have plenty of Clint's movies. Quizzers get many movies during each week and the Movie Quiz on Friday nights. Here is one from 1976 For a Few Dollars More.

For A Few Dollars More (1965) 2 hr 10 min-
Director
Sergio Leone
Stars
Clint Eastwood---Lee Van Cleef---Gian Maria Volontè---Mara Krupp

Two bounty hunters with the same intentions team up to track down an escaped Mexican outlaw.

https://archive.org/details/FrAFwDlrsMre1965


Just copy and paste the movie link then click arrow to play also put to full screen.
I have many newer movies Clint played in and directed. You are more then welcomed to come and play or just watch and chat with others. It's a friendly group of 4 to 6. Midweek coming attractions, Friday night quiz and weekend special movies. Friday night you have along with the movie quiz, entertainment, bonus movies you just take with you and watch at your whim. The rules are. Oh wait---There are no rules. All guesses are welcomed. When the movie is guessed everyone gets it under their name as winner. You ask what kind of movies. All kinds. Not only classics but newer ones too. Though usually the quiz movie is a classic one. I have movies from 1930's to 2020. Some nights you might get The Mule (Clint Eastwood movie) or Grand Torino. Even Unforgiven. Or a Superhero movie--Iron Man or classic one such as Dial M For Murder. A ton of Hitchcock movies like North By Northwest etc. A slew of horror mystery - Psycho, Scream- The Haunting, you name it. Last weekend was Stand By Me and Independence Day. Frank Sinatra movies like Suddenly, From Here To Eternity and of course the original Oceans Eleven with fellow rat pack buds. You can always check back on Friday's going back a couple of years for past Quizzes. They are at various locations I pick out for those to follow. below is an example of one such movie quiz.


Movie Guessing Quiz time......Yep time to take your best shot at guessing with some clues provided. Don't fret. If no one guesses you get more clues. Easier to the frontal lobes ones. This here block-buster should be in ones library. Once someone takes down the mystery then ALL get to share. If it was me I would sure get the lowdown where this movie is located and bookmark it to death.
It's one of those movies fit for any ole time but around Halloween it will give you the shivers just the same. Something very evil in this persons thoughts. Bound and determined to get exactly what he wishes. One way or another. It will have you gnawing on your nails and fretting on what's next to happen. Absolutely in most folks top 100 movies to watch. It is one of those 1950's block busters. Genre is one of Crime--Drama--Film-Noir. Chilling.....
