Unwashed And Somewhat Slightly Dazed

David Bowie is a 1969 album by rock musician David Bowie, released under that title by Philips in the UK, and by Mercury in the U.S. as Man of Words/Man of Music. It was later rereleased by RCA as Space Oddity but reverted to the original, eponymous, title for a 2009 reissue.

Famous quotes containing the words dazed, unwashed and/or slightly:

    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    Behind every working woman is an enormous pile of unwashed laundry.
    Barbara Dale (b. 1940)

    Now wait a minute. You listen to me. I’m an advertising man, not a red herring. I’ve got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex- wives, and several bartenders dependent on me. And I don’t intend to disappoint them all by getting myself slightly killed.
    Ernest Lehman (b.1920)
