Song of the day: David Bowie – "Ashes To Ashes" (live)

I’m fully aware that David Bowie is a moderately divisive chap in the music world. According to who you talk to, he’s either:

A) A Trend-Setting Magnificence Machine; or
B) A Dreadfully Untalented Poseur Who Has No Place In The Pantheon Of Artists Who Are Actually Great.

I’m in the A) camp myself. Right up until 1980. (Almost everything after Scary Monsters gives me the heebie jeebies.)

I don’t know why I told you all of that, because all I want to do today is play you my favourite version of “Ashes To Ashes“.
