No, it’s not the David Bowie version.
I love that version as much as anyone. But there’s another artist that has a different take on the song, one that I think deserves attention as well.
Her name is Vera Blue, and her version is both simple and ethereal. Once I heard it, I could not unhear it. If I hear Bowie’s original, I then want to hear Vera Blue’s as well.
It is magical.
