Mais Oui Bowie

Question: Is it wrong to be obsessed with an 80's track sung by an actress? 

Answer: Not when the actress is Isabelle Adjani, the songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, and the topic David Bowie's beauty

The possibly grooviest triumvirate of talent ever makes "Beau Oui Comme Bowie". The song's wordplay is hypnotic like a spell, and it's riff isn't letting me go this week. And that curious nonchalance of Ajdani's moves...

Isabelle Adjani, Beau Oui, Comme Bowie, 1983

If this isn't enough for you, get your fix here: Adjani's entire album, filmed as a track-to-track 45min. music video. Grotesque and fabulous are the first words to come to mind.
