"Sweet Head" is a song written by David Bowie and recorded in 1972. It took a while before it was released, and it first appeared on the Rykodisc CD release of Ziggy Stardust in 1990. It also appeared on the 30th Anniversary Reissue bonus disc of Ziggy Stardust in 2002. Though originally written for The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders of Mars (the lyrics refer to "brother Ziggy"), it was most likely considered too provocative to be released on the original album. The song's lyrics contain strong innuendo, and directly reference oral sex.
Famous quotes containing the words sweet and/or head:
“With sweet May dews my wings were wet,
And Phoebus fird my vocal rage;
He caught me in his silken net,
And shut me in his golden cage.
He loves to sit and hear me sing,
Then, laughing, sports and plays with me;
Then stretches out my golden wing,
And mocks my loss of liberty.”
—William Blake (17571827)
“Therefore with idle hands and head I sit
In late December before the fires daze
Punished by crimes of which I would be quit.”
—Allen Tate (18991979)
