FTRK #40 = "The Man Who Sold The World" by David Bowie
The Man Who Sold The World - David Bowie (1970)
Off the same-titled LP, The Man Who Sold The World is a Latin-themed, laxated rock ballad. Simplistic yet startling, it's a seventies classic with rather sedated yet infectious vocals. It's one of those inspiring songs that only need three sentences worth of lyrics lathered in dense, rippling sound to create the perfect enchanted bubblebath themesong.
