Lennon-Bowie connection...
« on: March 03, 2005, 03:38:16 AM »

I spotted this many moons ago, and I'm sure many others have (I just wasn't a member of this board at that time), but in Bowie's song "Young Americans," he uses the line from A Day In The Life, "I read the news today oh boy"... It really fits in the song and I think it's a beautiful tribute-ish thing...

Now I know Lennon and Bowie had a friendship (i guess) and they wrote "Fame" together, I guess during the Lost Weekend... But did they write that song together?

And did they write more together? I'd like to hear them..

Fame is the only song John & David Bowie wrote together but Lennon plays on Bowie's version of Across The Universe.
