From Wikipedia :
"Rubber Band was a single by David Bowie. The single was released in December 1966, and marked the start of Bowie’s recording contract with Deram which would include his first album, 1967’s David Bowie.

It was part of the three-track audition tape Bowie’s new manager Kenneth Pitt used to persuade the label to sign him. The track itself shows Bowie’s infatuation at the time with Anthony Newley. Despite some good notices in the music press, the single was a flop, once more failing to break into the UK charts.

The track, recorded in mono in October 1966 for the single, was re-recorded in stereo the following February for Bowie’s debut album.

The B-side, "The London Boys", was belatedly issued as a UK single in 1975"

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Oh, Marcel, I am afraid that this is a little bit of a misstep. Technically it's quite a good image, well lit, with well-defined rubber bands (though some in the bottom third or so are getting soft), but it's simply too literal, and at this stage in his career, Bowie was not literal in his lyrics. The multitude of bands leads the eye all over the place, it needs to stop and settle somewhere. It may have been a better idea to read the lyrics and try to illustrate a line from the song, or if really stuck, go with a better known song.

I did say that this was a misstep but you're definitely on a journey! Keep up the good work and keep on entering.
