Well you have to agree it is a tempting offer. David Bowie first asked the listening public to be his wife in 1977, as the second single from his uber-classic album Low. To celebrate the fortieth anniversary, here is a handsome picture disc reissue of the song, freshly remastered and backed with a previously unreleased live take on ‘Art Decade’. 7” on Parlophone.

- Be My Wife by David Bowie
8/10 Jack 7th June 2017
"Be My Wife" is a nostalgic return to the pauper's life, and perhaps the strongest song on the Low album. Its directness is punk in attitude, yet really a catchy roadhouse piano tune, and a surprisingly perfect fit here for a single. "Be my Wife" has a heavy piano riff played over and over, it kind of reminds me of what Nine Inch Nails is good at, creating noises that should be disturbing, but end up flowing perfectly within the song. If you want a good sampling of his different styles, this is the track for it.
