Best of David Bowie Week: Young Americans (1974)

Just writing an obituary for David Bowie, who passed away yesterday at 69, two days after his birthday, wouldn't do him justice.

Instead, we'll focus on the music that made him a legend. We'll start with "Young Americans", the title track from his 1975 album. The track was released as a single in February 1975, but Bowie, with five backup singers, a group that included future R & B superstar Luther Vandross, debuted "Young Americans" on The Dick Cavett Show three months earlier.
