    You just don't get it, do you? Given both David Bowie's and Billy MacKenzie's ambiguous sexuality, they both have the damned right to sing their own interpretation. And this version is wondeful in its way!

    Glad this cover version exists. Really like the mood and sparseness of it. Bowie original is obviously great. As for the haters - I think they were quite capable of doing a note for note remake, but what's the point in that?

    That thick bass and Billy's near-hysterical vocals contrasting brilliantly with the stripped down groove, its expectant repetition - seems the Bowie fans here are quite the morons for not getting this, yeah....

    why would you cover a fantastic (Bowie) song and just strip it down with less emotion? it doesn't really work.

    this is hilarious! Billy Mackenzie's sense of humor was lost on many, I see.

    Jeez, these vocals are loud (and atrocious). I'll pass.

    I think Beyonce got her idea for "If I were a boy" from this song....

    I think Bowie just has the edge here.
