About TVC 15

"TVC 15" is a song written and recorded by David Bowie in 1975 and released in 1976. The track was inspired by an episode in which Iggy Pop, during a drug-fueled period at Bowie’s LA home, hallucinated and believed the television set was swallowing his girlfriend. Bowie developed a story of a holographic television, TVC 15. In the song, the narrator's girlfriend crawls into the television and afterwards, the narrator desires to crawl in himself to find her. It was chosen as the second single from Station to Station in the UK, where it reached No. 33. In the USA, it peaked at No.64 on Billboard singles chart. The song was also a top 20 hit in Sweden. The B-side, "We Are the Dead", originally part of Bowie’s attempt to adapt Nineteen Eighty-Four, had previously been released on the Diamond Dogs album.

Oooh

Up every evening 'bout
Half eight or nine
I give my complete attention
To a very good friend of mine
He's quadraphonic, he's a
He's got more channels
So hologramic, oh my TVC one five
I brought my baby home, she, she sat around forlorn
She saw my TVC one five, baby's gone, she
She crawled right in, oh my, she crawled right in my
So hologramic, oh my TVC one five
Oh, so demonic, oh my TVC one five

Maybe if I pray every, each night I sit there pleading
Send back my dream test baby, she's my main feature
My TVC one five, he, he just stares back unblinking
So hologramic, oh my TVC one five
One of these nights I may just jump down that rainbow way
Be with my baby, then we'll spend some time together
So hologramic, oh my TVC one five
My baby's in there someplace, love's rating in the sky
So hologramic, oh my TVC one five
