Alain Kan – La vie en Mars
Language – French
Another day thinking about David Bowie, for obvious reasons. A French cover by Alain Kan for your delight and delectation today, an example of how Bowie’s music effortlessly reached around the globe and affected us all.
Alain Kan had a varied singing career, covering crooning, glam rock and punk, and sadly disappeared without trace in 1990. He was last seen getting on a metro train in Paris, and to this day his body has not been found. I suspect we will return to his music later in the year…meanwhile, if you get a chance, check out his track ‘Speed my Speed’, as it’s rather good too! Thanks to my friend Liam (@musicography) for alerting me to that one 🙂
