Well some people try to pick up girls
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And get called assholes

    I've never cared for Bowie's vocals on this song. It's catchy, but definitely a miss.

    Well, I do believe that this is a pretty epic cover, and dare I say, better than the original.

    Oh, yeah. Sorry, Richman, but this totally owns the original.

    I like it more than Richman's original (that is also good, of course)

    "Bowie has always done great covers, they kick ass, are better than the original songs." second time. Fuck the rest, Bowie's the best :D

    people should stop complaining, if you don't like the song, you don't need to tell the world. having heard this version first, i enjoyed it.

    Bowie has always done great covers, they kick ass, are better than the original songs. This was the song why I did buy the album back then (and unfortunately sold it away for the lack of money).

    Who sings original version of this song? After listening 10 times, I started to like this track. ;D (But the very Pablo Picasso is still beter)

    Nicht wirklich gut. Aber jemandem wie Bowie vergibt man auch das :)
