Sound and vision

As many of you know, I have been a David Bowie fan for a long time.  He had an album in 1977 called LOW.  The best song on that album was Sound and Vision.  It wasn’t a big hit but I liked it.  It has been remade by Beck.  This is not your normal cover.  Since the original was not very well known I suspect quite a few people won’t even know it was a Bowie song.

I can’t image what the arrangement process was for this song.  It would have been amazing to see it live.  You don’t have to be familiar with the original to appreciate Becks version but it certainly added to my enjoyment.  Here is link to the original it’s just the audio on YouTube (remember it was 1977).  Either way, you should check out Beck’s version it is impressive.

    Thanks for passing this on. We also like Bowie. One of us was familiar with the original, one was not. Both of us liked the cover.
    I thought you were a Talking Heads fan.

    You are correct sir, but I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive. Both David Bs have many similarities.
