Song Of The Day - "Unwashed And Somewhat Slightly Dazed" by David Bowie

Song of the Day - "Unwashed And Somewhat Slightly Dazed" by David Bowie from the album "Man Of Words, Man Of Music." 

This songs hails from what many feel was Bowie's first real album, although in reality by 1969 when it came out he was already a veteran who had been releasing unsuccessful records since 1966. This album was also reissued and re-titled "Space Oddity" after its breakout single.  It too saw several releases before it clicked with the public and became the classic we all know and love. On this track with its rockin' Bo Diddley beat, Bowie taps into his inner Dylan with lyrics like "I'm a phallus in pigtails..." I'm getting a mental picture...nuff said....
