David Bowie Tonight - Tumble And Twirl (1984) estimated value € 8,00

Bowie re-recorded the song with guest vocalist Tina Turner in 1984 for his album of the same name. The song was recorded as a duet but the single was only credited to Bowie. The original spoken word introduction of the 1977 version, establishing that the lyric is addressed to a lover dying of a heroin overdose, was excised from Bowie’s version because Bowie regarded the introduction as an “idiosyncrasy” of Iggy Pop that did not match his own personal vocabulary. Bowie also stated that he didn’t want to “inflict” that part of the song on Tina Turner, either. The reggae-flavoured song reached number 53 on the UK 32
