Monday Music "Modern Love" by David Bowie

Since I have thrown 2 of his songs under the bus, and I did mention that I would do a song from David Bowie that I do like.  Well I like this song,Granted that it is a bit campy but it plays well on the radio.   David Bowie and Bing Crosby do one of my favorite Christmas songs "Drummer Boy"

"Modern Love" is a song written and recorded by English singer-songwriter David Bowie. It is the opening track to his album Let's Dance, and was issued as the third single from the album in late 1983.

"Modern Love" was the 2nd song Bowie started recording for the album, after its title track, recorded in the first few weeks of January 1983. By the time "Modern Love" was issued as a single, Bowie's Serious Moonlight Tour was underway. The video for the song used footage of Bowie and his band performing the song from concert in Philadelphia on 20 July 1983. A live version, recorded in Montreal on 13 July 1983, was on the B-side.
As well as being a staple of the Serious Moonlight Tour, it was featured in Bowie's set at Live Aid in 1985, and in his subsequent Glass Spider and Sound+Vision tours of 1987 and 1990. It was also performed occasionally during his 2003-4 A Reality Tour. To promote the Glass Spider Tour, as part of his commitment to Pepsi for their commercial sponsorship, Bowie re-recorded the song with Tina Turner for a commercial which aired briefly in 1987.
