I look through the window and what do I see? Holy cow, a new David Bowie single! I’m sure I’m just one of an army of bloggers embedding this one today.
It sounds a bit sad to me.
It doesn’t have the immediate ‘holy shit!’ of something like Suffragette City or Heroes, but it’s pleasingly mellow. Is it good or bad? I think Bowie’s a bit beyond good and bad. A new song after 10 years from such an iconic artist becomes part of a narrative that eclipses questions or good or bad.
That’s the down side of being an icon.
