Musical Interlude: Ashes to Ashes (1980)

"Scary Monsters (& Super Creeps)" was David Bowie's last album for RCA before moving to EMI America in 1983 with "Let's Dance". Early in MTV's existence, the videos for "Ashes to Ashes" & "Fashion" gained significant airplay. "Fashion" featured a cameo by MTV VJ Alan Hunter (before MTV existed, of course). "Ashes" was a follow-up to Bowie's 1969 sci-fi effort, "Space Oddity".
