Helena made my pants dance in that video oh yes siree!

Didnt he do another video with another supermodel? Laetitia Casta I think...

There's a Bowie Cover of "Lets Dance" out at the moment with a female vocalist. Wouldnt say its better than the original but still very good.

Yeah, I just quoted myself from last year...wanna make somethin' of it?

I had to do it in order to mention two more lovely covers of the same song (one of my all-time faves), by Heather Nova and Courtney Jaye (who also does a nice version of CCR's "Who'll Stop the Rain")
