Who Will Love Aladdin Sane?
Last week in a The Day Today series Jez featured Drive -In Saturday by David Bowie.
This led me to comment that it was a brilliant and often overlooked song.Overlooked probably because Bowie was churning out quality song after quality song at the time.
Jez' post also led me to dusting down 1973's Aladdin Sane and giving it it's first listen in quite a while.
Whereas Hunky Dory remains my all time favourite Bowie album there is no denying that Aladdin Sane is also a cracker.
There are few, if any, artists who have produced three records in a row as good as Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and Aladdin Sane.
Aladdin Sane also has the greatest album cover of all time.
Here are another two brilliant and often overlooked sings from the album.
David Bowie - Panic in Detroit
David Bowie - Cracked Actor
