Welcome to Bossy’s Ear Worm, which features songs currently in Bossy’s headphones. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
David Bowie, Looking For Satellites.
Bossy digs this little piece of hypnotic 1997 electronica — hypnotica! — which Bowie cowrote with the record’s two producers, Reeves Gabrels and Mark Plati. That’s the thing about Bowie, he may not originate musical concepts, but he knows exactly where to go when he wants to incorporate these sounds into his stuff — and Bossy thinks that makes Bowie as much a visionary as the inventor.
Sometimes it’s recognizing which things to lift, and when. Madonna shares this same gift.
