[Video #126] from http://www.youtube.com/user/MetalGuru... the address for MetalGuruMessiah's Musical Paint Box! Check out my other videos!

"Be My Wife" was released at the beginning of 1977 on David Bowie's 11th studio album, Low. This is one of Bowie's greatest works, recorded when he was kicking his coke habit and had moved from New York to Berlin. Longtime producer, the brilliant Tony Visconti was on board, as well as the even more brilliant Brian Eno.

The album consists of one side (Side One) of shorter, highly melodic power/glam songs and a second side (Side Two) which was comprised of longer, mostly instrumental sonic tone poems.

I was very anxious to hear Bowie's new album when it was released in 1977, as I'd become a huge fan of his work and had just the winter before, purchased my first Bowie album on release date (Station to Station in January 1976). Station To Station was such an incredible album and there was much anticipation and discussion about Bowie's new album that the was recording in Berlin with Eno!

At first listen, Low seemed to be a major letdown....a string of short tunes and the instrumental side (not too exciting for a Bowie fan), but after a repeated listens I began to realize what amazing music this album contained.....side one especially. There is so much going on with those songs......even today I can honestly say that, no matter how many times I hear these songs, they seem to shift and sound so differently with each listen....like some glimmering dream that you can't quite place. I've never quite understood the power of Low's side one, and I guess that's part of the mystique and what continues to make this music so special.

This is my third video for my mini project for a video for each song from side One (after "Sound And Vision" and "A New Career In A New Town"). For this one I was wanting to simply find an image of a woman that would work well with the same effects I'd applied to the Bowie image from the album cover for the "..Career.." video. Came across the Lana Turner photo and thought it'd would be just right....a great stylish match that would work well with the effect.

Next up, I'll see if I can extend the effects from the previous Low efforts even further with "Always Crashing In The Same Car"....the longest of the side one tracks and another of my absolute favorites from the album.

Anyway, until next time....here is another one of those brilliant gems from the glorious side One of Low!!! Hope you enjoy the effort!

[Lyrics]
Sometimes you get so lonely
Sometimes you get nowhere
I've lived all over the world
I've left every place

Please be mine
Share my life
Stay with me
Be my wife

Sometimes you get so lonely
Sometimes you get nowhere
I've lived all over the world
I've left every place

Please be mine
Share my life
Stay with me
Be my wife

Sometimes you get so lonely
