Insomniac Edition: David Bowie – Modern Love (1983)
Wikipedia — “Modern Love” is a song written and recorded by David Bowie, and the first track on his album Let’s Dance. It was issued as the third single from the album in 1983.
Bowie has claimed the song is inspired by Little Richard, and it maintains the album’s theme of a struggle between God and man. Some commentators noted the similarities between the track and Elton John’s near-simultaneous hit “I’m Still Standing”, although both parties admitted the songs were recorded at roughly the same time with no knowledge of the other.
