I’ve been thinking about Absolute Beginners quite a bit this week, really wanting to pick the book off the shelf and read it again but something is telling my that revisiting a book I loved so much in my teenage years may not be a good idea. What if it is not as good as I remembered? Or even worse the grumpy old git in me may now think that it is a load of rubbish.
Anyway, here is the only post Let’s Dance, Bowie song that I remember liking with added crackles. The film adaptation it came from wasn’t that good, it did, however have a young Patsy Kensit and a gorgeous Vespa GS in it.

As a bonus here is the St Etienne cover version
