During the 60's and 70's, almost every hit singles from America or England would have had a french cover by some french artists at the time, I discovered some of these songs from the french version, only to realise it was an original american or english recording in the first place, lol.

I'm not sure about the sideburns either :))

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.
Before I clicked on the link I knew the song :)

But this version's special indeed, I wish I was there :)

Here's an oldie from Oz. It's dated, clunky at times, and it's great :)

A sobering thought ... it's hard to imagine a person in a wheelchair cutting through in today's climate.
That a cool song Polly, some really good moments and I liked that drummer :)
