You Can Wear A Uniform


I was watching something recently which ended with David Bowie's in-no-way-at-all-camp single Boys Keep Swinging. Filmed in a brightly lit TV studio it had Bowie miming, sashaying around and singing lines like 'You can wear a uniform, other boys will check you out'. And I thought, this is good but I think The Associates 1979 stripped down version is better.

Really? No way! I like the denseness of Bowie's version better.

The promo video certainly is something though, isn't it...

Didn't know they'd done this - *listening on YouTube*

S'good!

Would you consider moving to Box.net so's lazy buggers like me can listen without (before) downloading?

Oh gwan gwan gwan.

Having re-listened to the Bowie version I can't decide now. Doesn't matter. Both good.
