Quick Primer: Dream B-Sides.
Pick one song as the single, and then another — by anyone from any time — for the B-Side.
Today’s Single is Jean Genie by David Bowie
And then the B-Side, by the man I refer to as Evil Bowie – Rock is Dead by Marilyn Manson
And now, a Bonus Single (thanks to a dear reader who got one of these songs stuck in my head).
This is a special single… the A-Side and the B-Side are both by the same band — a little known but brilliant band from the ’80s called The Dream Academy.
A-Side: The Edge of Forever
B-Side: Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want (Smiths cover)
The first person who can tell me what connects these two songs other than the artist will win a special prize from your favourite dilettante.
And speaking of prizes, there are still a couple of weeks left in the Honourary Dilettante Contest
