Sitting at work, headphones on listening to Radio 2 .. as you do!
Well as I do.
Mr David Bowie .. hero of my youth .. comes on giving us China Girl.
I forgot how much I love that song, so much better than the original version that he wrote and produced for Iggy Pop.
And when I get excited, my little China girl says
Oh baby, just you shut your mouth!
Back in the day, 1983, saw him from the far end of Murrayfield, Edinburgh on his Serious Moonlight tour.
He was a dot in the distance, but it was still a great gig .. hard to believe that was over 30 years ago!
Although I loved the Serious Moonlight album, it was far too commercial for me and I much prefer his earlier work from The Man Who Sold The World to Heroes.
I think this was about the time I lost it with Bowie until he brought out The Next Day last year.
I’d love it if he toured.
Compare and contrast!
