David Bowie – Pablo Picasso (65)

December 15, 2009

Bowie’s cover of the Pixies’ Cactus gained all the attention, but I prefer his version of this Jonathan Richman classic. While the original is all glorious, droning nothingness, this version can’t be more packed full of life. I mean sitars and Spanish guitars.

Though I have to admit his more experimental Nineties output is one of my guilty pleasures, this decade Bowie’s been bang on form and not afraid of having fun.
