Tune Of The Day: David Bowie – Sound And Vision

I love cover versions.

I love advertising.

I love music in advertising.

But sometimes even a great creative strategy and a shit load of cash can’t beat the brilliance of an original.

In this instance, despite the fact that car company Lincoln have thrown a whole heap of money, an entire orchestra and Beck at their #HelloAgain campaign, it doesn’t come close to the simple magnificence of the original version of Sound And Vision by David Bowie.

Sorry, but it doesn’t.

If you do want a great cover version of Sound And Vision, I would recommend that you take a listen to the version put together by the boys of Franz Ferdinand, along with Girls Aloud, for a Radio 1 tribute album a few years ago.
