Day 347 | Fill Your Heart

I had been saving this song for around Christmas because it is Bowie’s happiest song. It is one extreme on the arc of contrasts from the Hunky Dory album- happy songs like this and “Kooks” on the one end of that spectrum and “Life on Mars” and especially “Quicksand,” on the depressing other end. Those songs are Bowie originals, this one is the album’s one cover. Coincidentally I am writing this while watching a documentary about Paul Williams, one of the song’s co-writers (with Biff Rose).
