The Top Uses of David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” in Movies or TV

A lot of David Bowie’s music had a definite point to it and Let’s Dance was no exception. The line ‘put on your red shoes’ calls to the vanity and need for consumerism that has for a long time been prevalent in society and the disparity that comes with donning such lifestyle choices. It’s a fun song but if you delve too deeply into the meaning without trying to have fun you might find yourself slowly distancing yourself from everything the song would eventually come to represent since despite being a musical genius Bowie was very much a mainstream singer. Unfortunately, mainstream and culture clashes tend to go hand in hand sometimes, meaning that the disparity he sings about with the red shoes is something he still supported in a way by becoming such an influential person. This in no way makes him a bad person, but he was another part of the system.

That’s why it’s better just to enjoy the music sometimes.

5. Lucifer

It figures the devil would like to dance. Lucifer has come to earth in this show because he’s bored with his role in hell and wants to see what life is like on earth. He becomes a consultant for the LAPD and runs a nightclub of all things, making him seem the common, run of the mill party guy. It’s a very warm and fuzzy version of the devil that doesn’t fit a lot of ideals but it’s still fun.

4. Gia 

This is the sad and somewhat depressing story of a young woman that comes to New York City looking to make it big as a model. When her agent passes away however she turns to drugs for solace. Even after finding someone that wants to be with her Gia still chooses the drugs and eventually pushes away anyone that might want to help her. Eventually she contracts HIV and spends the rest of her life in a hospital bed.

3. Zoolander

The world of the male model seems like something so easy to spoof that Ben Stiller went ahead and did it in a way that people somehow responded to with an overwhelmingly positive attitude. Personally I understood the movie and got what they were going for but almost shut it off. The moment this song is used is simply for introductory purposes, but it’s there.

2. Arthur and the Invisibles

For what looks like a kid’s movie this seems kind of complex but the gist is that Arthur is looking for hidden rubies and as a result is led on an adventure in which he not only fights his way through many enemies but also becomes betrothed to a princess that kisses him in order to thwart the main bad guy and eventually escapes with a promise that he’ll return.

There’s no one that did it better. I’ll be honest and admit that I am not a fan of David Bowie. It doesn’t mean I don’t like him but I won’t claim to be a fan when I didn’t listen to him that much despite finding his music intriguing. It would be an insult to a man like this to claim to be a fan just to hop on the bandwagon and be accepted by others. I will however say that he was an amazing man with enormous talent that stretched for decades and inspired many upon many individuals in his time.

He’s missed, and there might never be another person like him.
