David Bowie - John, I'm Only Dancing download mp3 album
John, I’m Only Dancing" is a single by David Bowie, released in two versions – entirely different recordings, but carrying the same catalogue number – in September 1972 and April 1973. Bowie later re-worked the song into the disco-influenced "John, I'm Only Dancing (Again)," recorded in 1974, but unreleased until 1979
Bowie drastically overhauled John, I’m Only Dancing when recording began on the album that would become Young Americans. Initially, Bowie intended for the new track to appear on the album, then to be called The Gouster or Fascination. Because he was breaking off his contract with manager Tony Defries, Bowie delayed the album’s release, and ended up recording new material with John Lennon. This song was finally released as a single in 1979. So The Gouster began with the outrageous brand new, funkafied version of David’s classic ‘John, I’m Only Dancing’, a single he wrote and recorded in 1972, only this time our version sounded like it was played live in a loft party in Harlem and he added (Again) to the title. It wasn’t the two and a half minute length of the original either. John, I’m Only Dancing (Again)" Track Info. Written By David Bowie.
