Then add his soulful, heartfelt vocals and lyrics ... music to give you the tingles. Enjoy ...

Great stuff Pol, & you've got to love this performance from the Hereford boy: Actually, the intro from Bowie is rather insightful on touring in the UK at the time (ah, they were the good times, sigh). Not many realise that this song was first written by Bowie for Mott the Hoople. Only after it's chart success in the UK, did Bowie release it himself.
