Big Squid Season 2 Dollar Days
Season 2, Ep. 6
It's the penultimate episode for season 2 as Hammo looks at the song Dollar Days on David Bowie's Blackstar. What at first appears to be a lush ballad slowly reveals a fiery heart. Hammo also reveals his reaction to when Bowie made his sudden reappearance with the song "Where Are We Now?" back in 2013. Warning: there's a lot of weepy talk in this one. This episode is not for the macho or the easily weepy.

Hammo continues his exploration of the final David Bowie album Blackstar as he takes a close look at track 5 from the album, "Girl Loves Me". This episode talks about how the lyrics are made up of the dialects Polari and Nadsat, and even takes detour into George Orwell's 1984 before finishing with a personal story about the best moment in Hammo's career.

There were two versions of David Bowie's song Sue (Or in a Season of Crime) recorded and in this episode of Big Squid, Hammo looks at the differences between the productions. Along the way there is a look at the dramatic monologues of Robert Browning and Hammo reveals what happened when he travelled to the other side of the world to see Bowie live in Dublin. This is part 4 of the 7-part season that focuses on David Bowie's final album Blackstar.
