In reply to:
Do you think bowie could get a hit out of it if he recut the song, or rereleased it as a single now?
He definately could. Just look around: people are lisening to Britney Spears. Lucy Can't Dance would kick Britney and a bunch of others in the but quite well... though I think Bowie would have to use a false name when he'd publish it... most people think he's just a glammer or some 70's celebrity (nothing wrong with that, of course, but the young people who listen to the modern crap tend not to like old things... well, usually anyway...)
