Song of the Day: "The Next Day"
Let's wrap up our Mercury Prize shortlist with Sir David Bowie. The Next Day was roundly hailed as Bowie's best album in, well, a while. It's his first album in 10 years and his first #1 album (UK) in 20 years (there were 5 more chances to hit #1 since Black Tie White Noise did in 1993--some really good albums, in fact).
Clinton is calling this year's award for Bowie. He called last year's 2 years ago for Adele, so we'll see.
