You don’t usually think of his lyrics. But in a career spanning five decades there are lashings of great lines and after some painstaking listening (and a lot of dancing round my room) I’ve whittled it down to a few that need your attention.

Last year, David Bowie completely misunderstood what birthdays were about and gave us the present of his return, after secretly working on his 24th studio album for a few years with not a peep about it leaking. Almost a year on, and with Bowie up for BRIT awards this week, producer Tony Visconti had a chat with BBC News about how he feels about the whole thing. [read more]
