What Bowie transition do you find most shocking, surprising, or interesting? I find these most interesting: -shift from Mod Rocker to Novelty/Cabaret tunes circa '66-'67. From writing and recording songs like "You've Got A Habit of Leaving" and "I Dig Everything" to "The Laughing Gnome" and "We Are Hungry Men"...enough said. -shift from glam rock to Philly soul in 1974-75. It seems to be a logical progression in hindsight, if you look at Diamond Dogs, particularly on songs like "1984" and "Rock and Roll With Me", but I imagine Young Americans must have seemed like an abrupt change in direction at the time. -shift to shiny 80's dance pop in 1983. This is probably the most abrupt transition, as Scary Monsters and Let's Dance are worlds apart and nothing he did immediately prior to 1983 seems to give an indication of that direction.
