David Bowie / Valentine's Day

http://bit.ly/1ez1zsh The protagonist in David Jones’ “Valentine’s Day” had decidedly different motives than the romantic western “holiday” celebration as we know it, the latter of which was most likely fueled by Hallmark and Godiva advertising dollars.

Bassist / producer Tony Visconti works the root note pocket on what turned out to be the last single released in Bowie’s lifetime – and IMHO stands among David’s finest compositions and accompanying videos. 

And props aplenty to Earl Slick with his signature virtuoso melodic accompaniment which, to my ears, evokes the immortal Ronno, and Sterling Campbell’s fat funky intro and back-beat.
