Friday, February 6th, 2009

You surely know anything I could tell you about David Bowie in three or four sentences, no? Labyrinth: there’s a good movie. <-Content! His cover of Waterloo Sunset is a studio version set to a slideshow.

Waterloo Sunset performances, chapter 6: Def Leppard

Friday, February 6th, 2009
