Advent song for December 12

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.

Hi, I’m David Bowie, I live down the road

What sort of music do you play?

Oh, mostly…contemporary stuff – do you like modern music?

Oh, I think it’s marvellous.

Genius.
