About Modern Love

"Modern Love" is a song written and recorded by English singer-songwriter David Bowie, released as the opening track to his 1983 album Let's Dance. It was later issued as the third single from the album in late 1983. Co-produced by Bowie and Nile Rodgers of the American band Chic, the song, like its parent album, is a rock song that contains elements of new wave music. It was recorded at the Power Station in Manhattan and was one of the first tracks recorded for the album. It was performed by Bowie on the Serious Moonlight Tour, where it often closed the shows. A music video for the song, directed by Jim Yukich and featuring a performance of the song during the tour, was released in 1983 and played frequently on MTV. Since release, "Modern Love" has received critical acclaim from music critics, who praised Bowie's songwriting, its production, and power as an opening track. It is generally considered one of the best songs on Let's Dance, along with "China Girl" and the title track. The single release was also a commercial success, peaking at No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart, and No. 14 on the US Billboard Hot 100. "Modern Love" has appeared on various compilation albums and was remastered on the 2018 box set Loving the Alien (1983–1988).

I know when to go out 
Know when to stay in 
Get things done 

I catch a paper boy
But things don't really change
I'm standing in the wind
But I never wave bye-bye
But I try, I try
There's no sign of life
It's just the power to charm
I'm lying in the rain
But I never wave bye-bye
But I try, I try
Never gonna fall for

(Modern love) walks beside me
(Modern love) walks on by
(Modern love) gets me to the church on time
(Church on time) terrifies me
(Church on time) makes me party
(Church on time) puts my trust in God and man
(God and man) no confession
(God and man) no religion
(God and man) don't believe in modern love

It's not really work
It's just the power to charm
I'm still standing in the wind
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try
Never gonna fall for

(Modern love) walks beside me
(Modern love) walks on by
(Modern love) gets me to the church on time
(Church on time) terrifies me
(Church on time) makes me party
(Church on time) puts my trust in God and man
(God and man) no confession
(God and man) no religion
(God and man) I don't believe in modern love
