ABC Wedsnesday - U is for Underground



When I was thinking what could I bring to this week's letter, I immediately thought of Underground, by David Bowie.

This groovy song is from the fantasy movie Labyrinth, released in 1986. A story within a story, just the way I like it. I remember watching this movie just because Bowie was the bad guy, and the soundtrack was his. I so love the chamaleon, and I danced Underground many times in front of MTV. Actually, I still dance it, for my little witch's despair! ;o)

I loved that movie because it was a Jim Hennson project. Bowie did a great job, I loved that one about the baby..."the babe with the power..."

Im still particularly fond of the wee little blue haired worm

:D Still love this movie, lol. It's why I learned to contact juggle (the stuff with the 'crystal' balls).

Incidentally, for years I didn't realize that Bowie was English - as a kid, I just thought the accent was an '80s thing!

Labyrinth is one of my fav movies of all time. I had such a crush on Bowie as the goblin king (he made those tights look good). I have the soundtrack and I still love it!
