My iPod #175: David Bowie – Changes

“Changes” is one of David Bowie’s most recognisable tunes. It is the opener to his 1971 album “Hunky Dory”.

The first time I heard the song was when it appeared in “Shrek 2”, but it was not in its original form. That version was a cover sung by Butterfly Boucher…. with Mr. Bowie featuring on vocals too.

There is not much I can say about it. I do like it obviously, but I feel as if I cannot go into much depth as to why I do. Mostly because I really listened to Bowie’s original version earlier this year. I will just say it’s the subject matter. Songs about time and aging really get to me for some reason.
