weird moments in music history

I’ve had this damn post sitting in my To Be Blogged list for months now, and I haven’t blogged it for no good reason at all. Its a post from stevenf‘s blog entitled “weirdest moments in popular music history.”

It is really really funny, eg:

3. ‘Space Oddity’ by David Bowie

A nice little noodley, spacey bridge begins at approximately 2:43, but concludes abruptly when an apparently drunken tuba player barges into the studio 17 seconds later, and farts out four of the most incongruous notes in recorded history just before, I can only presume, collapsing onto the floor. Only Bowie knows for certain what really happened that fateful day.

And you know, I didn’t remember this farting tuba player so I had to go queue up Space Oddity on iTunes and swing the pointer over to 2:43. Now I’m never going to be able to listen to the song without giggling madly. Curse you, stevenf.

  1. Yup. I always thought that tuba bit was a bit odd. I didn’t even have to dig out my 30-mumble year-old vinyl album to listen to the song again. I knew exactly what you were talking about.
