    David Bowie is fantanstic. Since I have known his songs, I can have a great calm swing in my ears when I remember to listen his songs. But, about his new single, I think it so good, and I bet that it may bring more new listeners to listen it. I wish I happen.

    Beautiful and haunting. If the album is good as Hours 1999 then it's been worth a 10 year wait. Bowie doesn't have anything to prove.

      The Bowie we have now is not the Bowie of the seventies. He is a completely different man. Let him become what he is becoming. I found the song be a little haunting for some reason. The kind of song you can infer different meanings to.
