Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.
Written and directed by Brett Morgen, Moonage Daydream (2022) sets out to, and perfectly achieves, capturing the creative essence of David Bowie and just what made him so special.
As I described in my last post, there will never be anyone like David Bowie. He really does belong in the same realm as the likes of Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury. Genius musicians with incredible stage presence and a seemingly infinite level of creativity and influence that have inspired every generation. Below are my favourite songs from the Brixton maestro. Even allowing that quite a few of his most famous hits are on the list, they still omit some some real gems. Songs like Life on Mars, Under Pressure, Dancing in the Street, Modern Love, The Man who Sold the World, China Girl, Fame and Young Americans would have still made it a quality Gr8at. Which of his songs have you most connected with?
