Bowie Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “After Today”

This track is from the Young Americans sessions, and was included on the Sound + Vision box set.

Some excellent (and recognizable) saxophone playing from David Sanborn. When Bowie started out, he played saxophone as well as singing. By this time, he was leaving the horn solos to more talented players. No matter – there was no way Bowie could play like Sanborn, but there is really no way that Sanborn could perform like Bowie.

Don’t ask me what comes after today

This elegy by Tift Merritt, from See You on the Moon, is a perfect cap to this week of music of the unbelievably influential and talented David Bowie. Bowie was always forward-looking, and I’m unable to see what comes after today.
