All David Bowie’s duets are odd, but this is the oddest. (Not including that one from Labyrinth which he sings with a monster.) What makes this, of course, is the bizarrely stilted run-up, which is reminiscent of nothing so much as the early scenes of a 1970s porn film.

What sort of music do you play?
Oh, mostly…contemporary stuff – do you like modern music?
Oh, I think it’s marvellous.
