Which Song Does He Use Most Octaves?  

My guess would be Wild is the Wind. though I maybe wrong on this.

What other rtracks come close or even more than this?

Starman has an octave leap in its chorus.

Temperature's rising, but any idiot would know that...

Candidate/Sweet Thing is all over the place, from the low intro to the high of "I'm scared..." to the falsetto ending "it's got you!"

Yes, but in that one he cheated in order to get the highest and lowest notes.

I have read somewhere that is true about the "It's safe in the city..." opening. For years I wondered about that since I could never properly emulate it and, of course, that only reinforced my respect for Mr Bowie as a singer. Oh welI...

I hadn't heard anything about the high end stuff, and this would surprise me because I could always reproduce those notes.

Compromised By The Expert new [re: wannabebowie]  

If I correctly remember a story Adam told me it was TW`s Einar who years ago started to discuss technical enhancement on Bowie's voice on that very track. The allegation reached the Bowie camp and Sailor himself replied and admitted to pitching up his vocals. I am sure Adam can and will say more when he comes along.

And I want to believe that a light's shining through somehow

I didn't suspect any enhancement at all. Go me.

I think the version of "John I'm Only Dancing ( again )" shows off his octave range very well.

Does that mean the

"And the sages of the subway sit just like the living dead
As the tracks clack out the rhythm, the eyes fixed straight ahead
"

part of It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City is fixed too? I always loved that part just because of the fact he got so low.

And what about the Baby Grace tape? Is that altered somehow!?
