3. Just beautiful.

All the more poignant because Crosby himself passed away within days of filming this.

Thank you for this sweet little memory, Sufragette. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

5. Crosby was a pig

I remember an interview with the devout Catholic. In response to a question about what he would so if one of his daughters got pregnant outside of marriage, he said that she would know that she would be dead to him and that he would never see her again or see the child.
Great example of Christian love and forgiveness. Guess the old bastard was perfect so he could throw the first stone.

11. What makes this echo down the years is Bowie's counterpoint.

10. Same here. He pushed for the his part in the duet to be something other than the main song

And they wrote this beautiful and meaningful counterpoint for him.

I love it.

Best to you, always.

Surreal and very enjoyable.

Happy X-mas to you, too.

12. I've never seen the Dinah! appearance. She was an interesting person.

Thanks for the info. I see he performed "Stay".

Have you seen "The Linguini Incident"? That was the best movie I saw him in, with Rosanna Arquette, Eszter Balint. I believe David helped Joe Strummer out of that recording contract bind Joe was in, by having him do the soundtrack under the name "Pray for Rain".

13. I haven't seen that. I 'll have to look for it.

A Bowie movie with a Strummer soundtrack?

And wasn't Arquette the woman Gabriel wrote "in Your Eyes" for?
