It’s always Billy Mackenzie I hear singing this song in my head, never David Bowie.
You’ve got that right! It’s not every day that someone else can smoke David Bowie at the top of his game. And “The Secret Life Of Arabia” has long been one of my top 5 Bowie tracks! But when I heard this a few years later in 1982, I was aware that the Thin White Duke had been usurped! Billy MacKenzie did it again with “Wild Is The Wind,” which was issued posthumously, sigh.
