Re: How does 'Fame' the orginal song sound? new [re: zigbot]  

En réponse à:

Oh, I totally disagree about Across the Universe. I love DB's version! All that "nothing, nothing, nothing!" screaming at the end is just . . . almost primal! I love it.


Me too!! Hmm, I might get tomatoes thrown at me, but I prefer David's version of Accross The Universe (I still love the original by the Beatles though!). I loooooove it!

I love Fame-- it was a number one hit and deservedly so. That guitar riff is a killer and his vocals plus the vocal effect at the end make it one of the better songs on YA. I've never tired of the studio version of Fame, though it's a bit of a disappointment when he performs it live in my opinion.

Don´t step on Wilson´s toes! new [re: revidescent]  

Just try saying that Bowie´s God only knows is better than the original and I guarantee that all hell will break loose...

FAME in its many incarnations new [re: poorsoul]  

I think Fame is a great tune, in spite of its popularity.
I love the basic 9th chord groove Carlos sets up.
And I have enjoyed pretty much every version he has done.
They are all pretty similar in tone and groove...some a bit more aggressive and in your face than others ('97 was kickin)
while some are a but softer with more empty space and implied groove. The original version on YA is perhaps the mellowist of the bunch.....after hearing live version for so long...i almost did not recognize it when i played the YA CD!
It has that 70s chilled drunk Al Greene soul to it.

The 78 rendition is pretty hip, and I love the 3 sax horn arrangement from the 83 SM tour.....
In spite of the commercial sound Bowie went for that year, I stand by mu opinion that the arrangemtns on that tour are among the thickest and most thought out as any of his tours.
The back up vocals are great, superb percussion, and the 3 saxaphones in a non lead role what so ever add a brassy brown richness that fill out the sound that all the distortion on a guitar cannot even compare to.

Plus Bowie's vocals are so damn strong and filled with inflection...he was resting good 78--83...

You are so right. I also adore the fullness of the sound in the SM tour. I don't know why Bowie haven't used the horn section in his last tours, I am afraid he will never use them.
Last time he played with brass live was Heroes at the "Concert for NJ" in 2001. Do you remember? Do you like it? I think it is horny.

That could be taken in an entirely different way.
