Absolute Beginners (1986)

A post-Let’s Dance Bowie sings an ode to selling out in this misbegotten musical trading in on 80s British nostalgia for the youthquake of the late 50s and early 60s. Soul-sapping, sure, but also he tap-dances on a gigantic typewriter, I dunno, Let’s Dance is a pretty good record, too.
