* LyricalDissonance: Songs such as "Janine", "Cygnet Committee", "Bombers", "Oh! You Pretty Things", "Young Americans", "Fantastic Voyage", and "Day-In Day-Out" set lyrics on such topics as {{love martyr}}dom, the apocalypse, troubled youth, and so on to deceptively upbeat music.

The ''Tin Machine II'' track "Shopping for Girls" takes this trope to the limit. A jaunty tropical guitar number on the surface, its lyrics are an uncomfortably intimate look at the child sex trade.

* {{Postmodernism}}: Bowie identified himself as part of this movement. He stated in ''The Complete David Bowie'': --> '''David Bowie''': ''I donít think thereís one truth, one absolute. Itís an idea that I have always felt instinctively, but it was reinforced by the first thing I read on postmodernism, a book by George Steiner called In Bluebeardís Castle. That book just confirmed for me that there was actually some kind of theory behind what I was doing with my work Ė realizing that I could like artists as disparate as Anthony Newley and Little Richard, and that it was not wrong to like both at the same time. Or that I can like Igor Stravinsky and The Incredible String Band, or The Velvet Underground and Gustav Mahler. That all just made sense to me.''

* TheMovieBuff: Was a considerable [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESM0bOaJJPk as he admitted in a French interview]]. When asked for his favorite films, he said "All...from [[Creator/FrancoisTruffaut Truffaut]] to [[Creator/RainerWernerFassbinder Fassbinder]]. But the kind of film I really like is the old [[GermanExpresionism German Expressionist films]] of Creator/FritzLang, [[Creator/FriedrichWilhelmMurnau Murnau]] and Pabst." His own music videos are filled with references to many films, famous and obscure. ''Ashes to Ashes'' refers to Creator/FedericoFellini's ''I Clowns'' while another refers to Chris Marker's ''La Jetee''.

** ''Film/AClockworkOrange'' was a key visual inspiration for Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, and the term "droogie" is dropped in "Suffragette City". The influence shows up again in "Girl Loves Me", which is sung entirely in Nadsat slang.

** The harmonica in "I Can't Give Everything Away" is (no doubt intentionally) quite reminiscent of the harmonica in "A New Career in a New Town".
