My submission for the Bowie music challenge. It's, um, not like the original. I really love the original version. And I mean it no disrespect.

INDEED. This is easily the least annoyed I've ever been at a "let's use speech synthesis for the lyrics" decision in a song.

Thanks! I was going to make Siri actually sing the melody, but I lost steam and the end of the month was looming.

The synth sound comes on like bees. Awesome.

"Siri, find Studio 54."
I like the synth work on this. Really well done. Fun take.

"Siri, is it raining outside?"

"Yes, Zooey. It's raining men. Hallelujah."

I've listened to this three times, and each one was fun. Really good for end of summer.

As a fan of the fromage in all its forms I salute the mild cheesiness of the idea here, even though the execution isn't massively cheesy to my ears. The piano part that comes back in towards the end works really well with the 4/4 kicks. Would be interesting to hear a longer mix expanding on that a bit.

I'm a little late -- just getting around to listening to some of the David Bowie songs now. This is fantastic.
