Fame

Lyrics

Fame makes a man take things over.
Fame lets him loose, hard to swallow.
Fame puts you there where things are hollow. Fame.
Fame, it's not your brain, it's just the flame

Lennon is credited because of a discussion with Bowie at Electric Ladyland studios and suggesting the title. Lyrics are by DB and guitarist Alomar contributed the riff which he borrowed from Footstompin' a song by The Flames that Bowie performed on the Diamond Dogs tour. Lennon sings the word fame heard at different speeds.

yes this one of the best dance songs ever. so sorry ban duckers. Bowie probably agrees that it is a gay song, it just doesn't matter. This is one of the funkiest songs ever made. Either way no one gives a s**t what kind of label you put on it. Shut up and dance, homophobes around the world. Bend up and smell the vapors, Galloot colognem...

Just a subtle reminder this song was written by John Lennon.

stating the subtle ironies of illusion in sounds of galactic spiders from mars and the warped sensitivies of the zigster. fame.

Genius is Bowie, such a strange song when first heard, you might not like it at first but by the songs end you are caught up in it's driving force and your dancing like a queer on uppers
