“Dancing in the Street”

No, please, not David Bowie. I naively always thought of him as immortal and timeless. It’s pointless to try and pin descriptives to him like “iconic”, “legendary”, or “titan”, and yet we try rather impotently in an effort to pay adequate tribute. What I do know is that he gave us all the example of how to live life without boundaries, without limitation, with colour, integrity and imagination, and perhaps above all, fearlessness. I can’t pick only one song, but the first I needed to put on was “Dancing in the Street” for its infectious capture of the joy of music and living: “All we need is music, sweet music… Laughing and singing and music swinging.” – Joyce DiDonato
