Wednesdays are for waking up and thinking “holy hell, why is it only Wednesday!?”. Ol’ Ziggy Stardust here clearly knows what I’m on about, because he’s written me a song title that sums the situation up quite nicely.

I’ve been a bit neglectful in my Bowie intake, but I’m at least getting the minimum recommended daily dosage. It Ain’t Easy is built around the contrast between the almost Dylan-esque, folky verses and the semi-psychedelic, balls out 70s rock of the chorus. It’s a lifter of spirits, that’s for sure!
