About the songEdit
Written by David Bowie and Brian Eno, the song was originally recorded during the Lodger sessions in the late 1970s. Bowie wanted to capture a garage band style for the track, and decided the best way to achieve this sound was to get the band to swap instruments. Guitarist Carlos Alomar played drums and drummer Dennis Davis played bass. The final result had a post punk feel.
Duran Duran's version also features with Carla Bruni's "Absolute Beginners" on a very limited 7" vinyl single, released by Manimal on 20 December 2010. A total of 1500 pressing produced, split in the following colours 300 on pink opaque, 300 on clear and 400 on black. Later repressed on 500 yellow vinyl copies.
