Song of the day: David Bowie – Starman

There’s no doubt an artist like David Bowie would pop up sooner or later in this personal overview of music that touches me. But the tricky part is of course: which song to select? I opted for the easy way out and let coincidence decide, in the form of the shuffle function on my iPod during this morning’s jogging. Bowie’s Starman (released in 1972) was the first song served to me this morning, and I was paricularly struck by a short sequence in it, so… the choice was made. (To find out what effect the sequence has on you: it starts at 0:50)
