“Under the moonlight, this serious moonlight”
Though it only reached #10 in our album poll in 2013, such was the global success of Let’s Dance it’s possibly the Bowie LP that most people are familiar with around the world and it remains Bowie's best-selling release.
Produced by David Bowie and Nile Rodgers, Let’s Dance was issued on this day (April 14th) worldwide, spending 13 weeks in the UK Top 5. The album made it to #4 on the US chart.
The attendant singles, Let’s Dance, China Girl and Modern Love were also worldwide smashes, with the popularity of those tracks reflected in the poll we launched on Thursday.
Modern Love 17%
China Girl 16%
Let's Dance 16%
Cat People (Putting Out Fire) 12%
Without You 10%
Criminal World 9%
Shake It 5%
An interesting result that follows pretty closely to the running order of the original album, excepting Cat People which has moved from track 7 to track 4.
Disagree with that conclusion? The poll is still open if you want to try and make a difference and read more regarding each track.
