It’s a good thing David Bowie doesn’t need money. He’s spent a fortune ( or someone has) on a video for the song “The Next Day.” It’s beautifully filmed, with Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard.

If Bowie had really wanted a hit single from the album of the same name he might have chosen “Valentine’s Day” or “I’d Rather Be High”– they are very catchy. But why try and have an actual hit when you can indulge yourself?
