January 11 — MODERN LOVE, David Bowie (1983)

imageMy introduction to David Bowie came while I was in seventh grade, when Dad took an unexpected, brief turn toward rock music, and the “Golden Years” single appeared at our house. But it was in college, during Bowie’s New Wave years, that I started paying attention. This song and video — the suit, the pleats, the untied bow tie, the tall hair, the back-and-forth dance moves — to me was the definition of cool. See you in space, Ziggy.
