Look, I Just Don't Like David Bowie

Look, I just don’t like him, OK? It’s a free country. We’re all entitled to our opinion. I thought I’d get that out of the way before I come to my main point. Cue the drum roll…

I really don’t like David Bowie. I’m sure he is a very nice man but I can’t stand his music and never have been able to. His voice grates and his songs are particularly unmemorable. Indeed, Changes is the only one which I actually like. Some of you will think that indicates particularly bad taste on my part but so be it. He’s not a patch on Sparks, Roxette, Meat Loaf and Sir Cliff. Just my humble opinion!

And judging from the dirge that he has released today I’m absolutely right. I can’t think that even his biggest fans will think it’s great, although there is a tendency for avid fans of a particular artists are sometimes blind to the lack of quality of some of their songs. Come on Bowie fans, admit it. The song he has released today is pants.
