The late, great, David Bowie is still a regular on my playlists. So many wonderful songs that I will never tire of. Recently I was listening to my copy of ‘The Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders from Mars’ record and it was there, lying on the carpet (as I usually am when listening to vinyl) that I rediscovered the wonder of ‘Moonage Daydream’.
This song takes me to another place entirely. There’s so many elements to it, I love how it builds a little bit throughout, there’s some interesting breakdown with flutes and synth and then it all comes to a head with a beautiful string arrangement.. I am a real sucker for strings on a song!
