“The stars are out tonight”
David Bowie’s Tonight album was released on 24th September, 1984, 34 years ago today.
Though there were only three tracks on the album that David Bowie had no hand in the writing of, Tonight has a higher percentage of covers than any other Bowie album, aside from Pin Ups, Bowie’s 1973 covers LP.
With just two solo Bowie compositions and two new co-writes out of the nine tracks, five of the songs on Tonight could be considered cover versions.
