Re: 1977

The Year is 1977. The year that the first Star Wars (Episode IV: The New Hope) made its way to the big screens. And then there was Bowie.

The seminal album by the 'Thin White Duke' is divided in its style; by the angular rock songs and the ambient atmospheric instrumentals and has been considered influential and ahead of its time.

The song "Warszawa" shares songwriting credits with Brian Eno. The album itself is part of the 'Berlin Trilogy' in which Bowie collaborates with Eno in two other albums. The song itself also influenced another band, in which they named their band "Warsaw", later to be renamed "Joy Division".
