    This is SO underrated. I agree with the people below; both the bass and Pete Townshend are amazing in this. And David's voice!

    Amazing stuff. Pete Townshend's cameo is epic.

    LOL at Slow Burn merely being called "acceptable"!

    my god! listen to that bass!


Here shall we live in this terrible town
Where the price for our eyes shall squeeze them tight like a fist
And the walls shall have eyes and the doors shall have ears
But we'll dance in the dark and they'll play with our lives

David Bowie - Slow Burn Lyrics
