I like this self referentialism in Bowie's work - somehow this guy is saying the same thing again and again in different ways. And people are again and again surprised and fascinated. Not a lot can do that.
How brilliant that wonderful songwriting ability is, Bowie is so clever to be able to write songs that fit into any decade and still refer to trends in life.

I do not know of any other contempory artist with this abilty, do you?
