Modern Love is the first track on David Bowie’s album Let’s Dance. The song was released as a single in September 1983. It reached number 14 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 2 in the UK.
Modern Love talks of the struggle to find faith and meaning in love and god. The lyrics are dark and introspective. Yet, this lament on spiritual emptiness is set to an uptempo rock n’ roll beat, soulful call and response vocal arrangements and a pop hook that begs you to sing along.
