Yes, love it.

My favourite song on my favourite Bowie album, and the passage you refer to is IMMENSE.

Who the fuck would expect a bit of Martin Denny in the middle of that song? What an inspired arrangement.

Bowie is God. There are no two ways about it. If you haven't, pick up Loving the Alien so you can see just how superhuman he was in the 70s, and how he lived The Man Who Fell to Earth in the 80s.

I also love the heavy delay on the vocals as the track reaches a climax, PANTASTIC!

I urge a little caution here, God would never have appeared with Mick Jagger in the Dancing In the Street video.

Listen, the Abrahamic omnipotent infallible god is the wrong model here. Think more along the lines of the Olympians or the Aesir and Vanir.

Ok, I've done that and still consider Bowie's involvement a travesty.

1985 rears its ugly fucking mug again.

Ragnarok.

Afterwards: a rebirth.
