Riff: David Bowie – “Dancing Out in Space”

Mar 12, 2013

Something like religion/Dancing face to face/Something like a drowning/Dancing out in space

from Dancing Out in Space lyrics by David Bowie

Almost too cheeky a follow-up to that odd Jagger/Bowie flamboyant moment that wrought “Dancing in the Street,” this much finer swing is quintessential Bowie, complete with an angelic haze of back-up vocals, and of course, images of the Thin White Duke dancing in space.
