The Daily Bowie #19 - "Golden Years"
This is one of my favourite David Bowie songs, a love that really kicked in when I first saw him perform it during the SERIOUS MOONLIGHT TOUR.
FROM WIKIPEDIA (see link below): Bowie allegedly got drunk to perform the song for the American TV show Soul Train (see video on this page); at the time he was one of the few white artists to appear on the program. The resultant video clip was used to promote the single, and assisted Bowie's continued commercial success in the United States, where it charted for 16 weeks and reached No. 10 in early-1976. It achieved No. 8 in the UK.
"Golden Years" was played sporadically by Bowie on the 1976 tour, if at all, but regularly on the 1983, 1990 and 2000 tours. It appears on the 1983 concert film Serious Moonlight.
