David Bowie- Let’s Dance 40th anniversary 4-10

Well before "Let's Dance" by David Bowie came out in March 1983, we already knew  that rock's original Moon Child would change sound, style, and musician personnel inexorably like lunar phases. Bowie glides and pirouettes through a myriad of topics while sharing "China Girl"(co-written with Iggy Pop),"Modern Love","Criminal World", "Cat People", and "Let's Dance" featuring a young previously unknown Texas blues (!) guitarist named Stevie Ray Vaughan. The late, great David Bowie for the fortieth anniversary of "Let's Dance" is reprised here the week of April 10.

David Bowie- Let’s Dance

"Let's Dance"  was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1983, and if David could have moonwalked like Michael Jackson, Bowie probably would have won. it was no surprise that multi-media maven David Bowie, who seemed tailor-made then for the dawn of the MTV era in America when "Let's Dance"  was released, would later be among the first to embrace computer-generated gaming and virtual reality, which David discusses at length here.
