Nights Are Warm And The Days Are Young

Here's another David Bowie find that came to my attention after reading Marc Spitz's biography. Soul Train is always very awkward for any performer. For one, the artist always has to lip-synch, usually very badly. Watching the video below you will probably think that the audio is off synch. It's not; that's just classic drugged up rock star forgetting his lines. Also, I'm guessing the audience is told to completely ignore the person who's performing because when they're up there it always seems like the dancers couldn't care any less. Then again, maybe that's just 70's cool. Either way, here is Bowie's performance of "Golden Years" from 1975. As Spitz puts it, "Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse have never looked this wasted."
