Comment:

Go to the pop spectrum’s most distant pole and you’ll find someone there who’s covered Bowie. For instance, grunge gods Nirvana and ’60s pop princess Lulu, who both cut his “The Man Who Sold the World”: while Nirvana blew some Seattle-style grit onto its pop polish, Lulu dragged it down into Berlin’s underground — thanks to Bowie’s sleaze-ified production. Speaking of Bowie behind the boards, most people think Mott the Hoople’s biggest-ever hit is also their song. [i]Wrong[/i]. Hearing that the band was breaking up, fan-boy Bowie offered to glam-up their flagging career with a new tune (which he also produced). Ian Hunter’s fashion-burnout vocals, the screamy soaring of Mick Ralphs’ guitar, and Verden Allen’s First Gospel Church of Glitter organ riffs defined an era in three-and-a-half minutes. And it didn’t take ’60s Scottish popsters the Beatstalkers even [i]that long[/i] to recognize a young Bowie’s genius when they recorded three of his tunes, including the mod-meets-music-hall masterpiece “When I’m Five.” From Barbra Streisand to Poison, from Alien Sex Fiend to M. Ward, Bowie’s pen (and, occasionally, his face) has turned up in the most astonishingly unexpected places.
