There’s an App For That, Where “That” Is Equal to “David Bowie”

it's time to play the music

David Bowie’s geek credibility has always been just a bit more visible to me than his musical career. What with Labyrinth, and The Prestige, and the significant underpinning of David Bowie jokes in Venture Bros. that eventually climaxes in the season 2 finale, there are clearly a lot of geeks out there who this guy speaks to, probably because of his willingness to, well, play himself no matter what role he’s in and to let our definition of who his is stretch accordingly.

Was I talking about something here? Oh yeah, he’s got an app up now where you can remix his 1975 single Golden Years using eight of the original sixteen recording tracks.

For $2 it’s a little steep as far as non-productive apps go, but maybe if we sit quietly and wait, somebody will deposit a Golden Years/Magic Dance mashup right into our laps, just for the sake of celebrating the randomness of Bowie’s career.
