David Bowie – China Girl (1983)

Co-written by Bowie and Iggy Pop, the first recorded version of this came out on Iggy’s classic 1977 LP “The Idiot”.

Bowie’s version was one of the stand out singles from 1983’s “Let’s Dance” LP. The LP was produced by Nile Rodgers (of Chic, Sister Sledge, etc fame and also pretty much my favourite guitarist of all time)

Nile Rodgers took the original riff and elevated it into the pop stratosphere. He plays the rhythm guitar on this while Stevie Ray Vaughan is on lead.

The original video and then the longer LP version.
