Good Bowie vs Evil Bowie – Dream B-Sides

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

  1. Marilyn Manson is a pretty interesting character, especially when interviewed. But wouldn’t the ideal David Bowie B-Sde be something from Iggy Pop? 😛

    (I’m not sure what connects the Dream Academy songs …?)

  2. The Dream Academy videos both give me the error message “invalid parameters” when I click on them. Do I win the prize? (Fingers crossed!)
