Piley put me on to this Bowie boggler years ago – when I discovered YouTube, this bizzaro Bowie-as-Pelham-Puppet performance of ‘Boys Keep Swinging’ was the first vid’ I searched for, but some ol’ spoilsport pulled it a week later – since then I’ve been trawling the ‘Tube at least once a week hoping for the return of the Thin White Duke, only to find it on Yahoo/AOL video (no, I didn’t know about it either).
Anyhow – while it’s online,watch it, watch it and watch it again. – It is a pinocchio a go-go gem.
As a bonus here’s Suzanna Hoff’s rework of ‘Boys Keep Swinging’, which would be greatly improved by losing the squiddly diddly guitar solo (I don’t think it’s her hammering the frets).
‘Boys Keep Swinging’
And, have a pop on over to I Should Be Working for another video version of Bowie and ‘Boys Keep Swinging’.
