I bought the single 45 in 1984. Flip side was a live version of the 60s r&b hit "knock on wood". great version by bowie. Goes without saying the A side is great too. One of the most passionate vocals I have heard.

Lyrics are for a shorter version to suit radio. A few verses were admitted to that version. This is the album version.
