I would say this sounds as good as it did 32 years ago when it hit the top ten in the United States.

Still can't believe he's gone, me and my old choir friends sang his songs when we all met up together a tear came out of my eye after we sang under pressure.. Rest in peace Bowie we will miss you!

I know when to go out
I know when to stay in
I get things done...

Agree with @aaronweiner 4 below, this song is deceptively complex, touching on gender role dynamics, religion, etc, in such an incredibly shiny and catchy package. My favorite song on this album by a mile.

RIP David Bowie! I'll never forget you. You were such a musical genius... Gone but never forgotten...

This is a complex and deep song that's song like a disco hit. That's a tough sell unless you were David freaking Bowie. RIP.

@far_past_mi d n i g h t . I remember that campaign. They had a commercial with Heart in the studio too. Now if they could have gotten Motorhead, that would have been a coup.

Now that this tune is 30 plus years old, is it really modern? In any case, good tune...
