One of the interesting things about David Bowie is his ability to combine accessible melodies with lyrics that aren't always so accessible. Bowie's lyrics can be complex and abstract, but his melodies -- glam rock, hard rock, funk, dance-pop, or otherwise -- often have a way of grabbing the listener immediately. His lyrics may not offer immediacy, but his melodies and hooks do.
