* CelebrityParadox: Played with in the short story that accompanies the album, which is written as the diary of Detective Nathan Adler. Briefly recounting the history of the shocking performance art that paved the way for the "art-crime" fad, he notes that in TheSeventies "Bowie the singer remarked on a coupla goons who frequented the Berlin bars wearing dull surgery regalia: caps, aprons, rubber gloves and masks." No first name is given...

Added DiffLines:

Bowie planned for the album to be the album to be the first of a trio of [[ConceptAlbum concept albums]] (the second would have been called ''2. Contamination''), but Bowie ultimately [[WhatCouldHaveBeen scrapped the other two records]] and left the story unfinished.


* RefrainFromAssuming: "I Have Not Been to Oxford Town" is not actually about the Oxford in England, but the one in UsefulNotes/NewJersey instead.
** There is no apostrophe in "The Hearts Filthy Lesson", but there is an extra apostrophe in "Thru' These Architects' Eyes" instead.


* BlackSheepHit: The PSB remix of "Hallo Spaceboy" would be a good candidate for Bowie, being more of a song you'd find playing in nightclubs or discos.
