"The Jean Genie" Bowie, of course. Do you have Bowie's original of "All The Young Dudes"? Or his cover of "China Girl"?

I never knew he covered "I Can't Explain It"? Oooo! "Rebel, Rebel" David presaging Punk by a couple of years. I saw the "Diamond Dogs" tour, the stage show was something!

"Fame" David on top of the Disco trend. The guy had a sense for these things. Up with "Young Americans"."Golden Years" going right through his Disco phase.

"Space Oddity" Felix called it. Did Bowie foresee that weird Musk guy in the early 70's?
