My late entry in the Bowie Summer Challenge. Pretty much like my original idea, but of course it’s never quite like I imagined. Here’s what I ended up with. At least I did it, I never even started the last one.
Man, of all the versions of this song I attempted for the Bowie cover challenge, this one is the most nearly acceptable. Picture a seventeen-year-old with a bad haircut, all alone on the night of the big dance with a guitar, a cheap microphone and a 4-track.
I really won't be able to come up with another / better / thing based on the Bowie song. Too busy fixing the meals, painting the walls, going to the bank... I consider this my back porch approximate version of Soul Love. Some chords (most chords I guess) are only in the vicinity of the original ones. Be kind. It's been recorded while my daughter was taking a nap, I tried not to be too noisy.
