CAN'T HELP THINKING ABOUT DAVID BOWIE AND HIS NEW REMASTERED TRACK
_____

"Can’t Help Thinking About Me" was a Bowie song first released in 1965 under the moniker David Bowie with The Lower Third, his first single since changing his name from David Jones. An anthem to going your own way, you might say it's Bowie at peak youthful purity, before the costumes and the personas and star-studded guest lists.

The song was recently rereleased as a remastered version, an instance of immortal artist showing us he's still got it all the way from the grave.

Which brings me to Cameron Crowe's 1976 feature "David Bowie Pulls A Lazarus," as he always does, which covered the first slate of shows after his costly split from his manager Tony De Fries. This Bowie was his own man. It didn't matter what anyone else wanted. Crowe called it a virtual oneman tour de force, devoid of sets, costumes, glitter or dancers. Just David. And with that, he notes, There's no need for mascara or guitar humping. David Bowie, at his very basic, is a consummate entertainer.

We never needed the pomp and circumstance, and suffice to say, we don't need it now, even if we could have it. Bowie’s risen from the dead before, he's done it now, and he'll do it again.
