Song #199: "Modern Love"--David Bowie (1983)

Today, it's the second of two contributions from an artist who helped revolutionize several areas of popular music with a talent and personality that sometimes was completely misunderstood.

I'm most impressed by the fact that he did not let his recent terminal illness keep him from completing and releasing his final work literally just before his death.

This song was everywhere on radio in 1983, which was a very, very good year for music, and much more than just Michael Jackson tunes and "Every Breath You Take" by The Police. Bowie's contribution here is a great example.

So, time to put your trust in God, your fellow man, look at relationships, not religion, and question assumptions, challenge your faith, and take a second look at modern love.
