“Let’s Dance” part of King Charles’ official coronation playlist

I’m not exactly sure when and how it is supposed to have been used, but there’s an official playlist celebrating the coronation of King Charles, and “Let’s Dance” is on the list. This is a pretty vivid video of Bowie performing the song at the 2002 Glastonbury festival, which I thought was fitting because it is in England.

I watched some of the coronation. As a democrat (both a “small d” and “capital D”) I don’t philosophically support monarchy, however the ceremony was impressive. I think the modern function of the monarchy is as living symbol of the country’s history and culture and really the whole of the country. I’m glad that in this small way Bowie was acknowledged as part of that mosaic.
