Video Of The Day – DAVID BOWIE Changed 45 Years Ago…

‘Changes’ by DAVID BOWIE


Forty-five years ago today – on 7 January 1972 DAVID BOWIE released CHANGES as a
single in the UK, with acoustic song ‘Andy Warhol‘ as B-side. Both tracks were on his fourth album Hunky Dory. Despite only reaching #49 on the charts, this is one of The Thin White Duke‘s best known and highly praised songs. The late legend said at the time “it started out
as a parody of a nightclub song, a kind of throwaway”
. A magnificent sonic diamond about artistic development it became! With Mick Ronson on strings, Rick Wakeman (once Yes man) on keyboards, some sultry saxophone in the end by the man himself and an overall passionate vocal performance. Intriguing and hypnotizing. A true classic…
