Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Young
Americans" - Rated 486/500!
Bowie's 1975 "Young Americans" finds him amidst many back-up singers including
Luther Vandross while David Sanborn played the sax solo. Includes "Fame", "Young
Americans" and "Can You Hear Me".
Young Americans was recorded between tour dates at Philadelphia's Sigma Sound
Studios, which was the capital of black music in the area. The Soul influence
had a very obvious effect on Bowie's style. He even completely redesigned the
stage for the rest of his tour.
"In 1975, Bowie traded his glammed-out Ziggy Stardust persona for an
exploration of what he called "plastic soul." Yet this R&B homage is one of his
warmest, wildest tales, recorded in Philadelphia with a then-unknown Luther
Vandross on backing vocals and David Sanborn wailing on sax. "It's about a
newlywed couple who don't know if they really like each other," Bowie said."
