    Def. Scott Walker impact, and all the better for it

    I feel the Scott Walker influence on this one. And it's a lot more like Nite Flights than his cover

    Beautiful song; feels out of place on Outside, but it really stands out inside Bowie's entire discography

    I'm talking about the Outside version, of course. But the "Buddha" one is amazing, too.

    The Phoenix Festival version from 1996 is fab. He may fluff the lyrics, but it may be the best 'Strangers' you'll hear.

    Wasn't a big fan of Outside. However, this song really is good. It's got some soul/feeling to it.

    One of my favourite Bowie songs, it is just so Bowie, if you know what i mean.

    If the 1. Outside version isn't the most beaustiful song of all time, I dunno what is. [2]

    the lyrics, the piano, the whole song is so heartbreakingly beautiful, sad and comforting at the same time. [3]

    In my dreams, "Strangers When We Meet" would be the name of the series bringing back DI Gene Hunt.
