The Lines “2Split Seconds” 1980

It’s a bit hard to focus this morning, as thoughts and memories return continually to the great maestro and mentor who has left us. David Bowie was the cool big brother for every kid my age who felt a bit odd and alienated. And that was a lot of us. He continued to play that rôle, in a more avuncular way, for every generation since.

Today should be spent listening to Candidate, or Quicksand, or any number of masterpieces by this amazing artist.

The next song in our series is a strange one, part bossa nova and part something else. Lord knows what it’s about.
