    Seriously, some people are saying this is the worst song on the album?!?! This might well be my favorite Bowie song of all time. This and "Suffragette City" are the two of the catchiest songs he ever did.

    I swear to god every time he says "get along yeah" I have to stop the song and listen to Kenny Loggins because it sounds more like he's saying kenny loggins to me. I have yet to finish this whole song for this reason alone.

    This song is amazing. I love the slow ending.

    This song could easily be on The Kinks' "Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One", which has similar themes.

    Rootslane elab loodusega harmoonias. Nii ta ehitab palju väikseid tuumajaamu. Talvel jahib nagu karu või läheb mööbli poest. Siis ta uputab oma mured, kus on palju napsi. Elavdada uuesti siis ta loeb oma raha ja värvitavaid tema heledad juuksed. Kokkuvõttes: Kas natuke skisofreeniline.

    Such a great, bouncy, carefree flavor to this. Bowie sounds like he's having genuine fun on this.

    I can not allow a painfully juvenile insult be the most recent shout on this song.

    ...and he became a star. This song was a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    You just cannot not add bowie to your cd collection. See him at Stafford and Mk.,Ever changing stlyle and great range of vocal. One of my all time favourites.
