Driving to work on Monday morning I was informed that David Bowie has left this mortal coil. It took me 2 1/2 hours to drive from Zone 4 in East London to Hounslow and in that time I heard out pourings of grief of the like I do not think I have heard before. It has continued rightly so, throughout the week and I have heard from people how much his music and his style has influenced, inspired and soothed many souls over time and space. I am not a huge fan David Bowie but I do own two greatest hits albums that listen to from time to time. I spent this evening in my pyjamas dancing to said greastest hits. ‘Let’s Dance’ seems to strike a chord with me, causing me to slide across the wooden floors in my merino wool socks and causing my fiance to shake his head in amusement.
The rest of the evening was spent half snoozing on the sofa with the album on repeat.
RIP David Bowie
