David Bowie: ‘Wild is the Wind’
As has evaded no-one’s attention whatsoever, today would have been David Bowie’s 70th birthday.
Out of last year’s seemingly endless string of celebrity deaths, Bowie’s untimely demise was probably one of the single events that hit me the hardest. Bowie was completely transcendent in a myriad of ways, and in his wake, he has left a unfillable void. However, the impact he has made on the music industry as a whole as well as on so many people’s lives in general is a cause for celabration.
In bittersweet commemoration, I’ll be listening a lot to one of my favourite Bowie performances: his breathtaking 1975 cover of ‘Wild is the Wind’.
