Following the enormous success of the vibrant and upbeat LET'S DANCE, David Bowie's follow-up TONIGHT was a slicker yet more enigmatic-sounding collection. Full of synthesizers and polite Arif Mardin arrangements, this record allowed Bowie to indulge himself, even if that meant not putting out LET'S DANCE II. Three songs were resurrected from the '70s Iggy Pop catalog and another newer one was co-written with Pop ("Dancing With The Big Boys.") A 1977 Pop song was used as the title track, on which Bowie duetted with Tina Turner (who was in the middle of a comeback herself) and turned it into a reggae-flavored love song. Elsewhere, the Thin White Duke paid tribute to the Beach Boys by covering "God Only Knows" and scored a hit with "Blue Jean."
Tonight is the sixteenth studio album by David Bowie, released in 1984. It followed his most commercially successful album, Let's Dance. He described the album, released immediately after his previous album's tour wrapped up, as an effort to "keep my hand in, so to speak," and to retain the new audience that he had recently acquired…
On the basis of Tonight, it appears that David Bowie didn't have a clear idea of how to follow the platinum success of Let's Dance. Instead of breaking away from the stylized pop of "Let's Dance" and "China Girl," Bowie delivers another record in the same style. Apart from the single "Blue Jean," none of the material equals the songs on Let's Dance, but it's appealing pop-soul and dance stylings helped make Tonight another platinum success.
This is an electrical and fantastic soundtrack of the wonderful fantasy movie of 1986, starring Jennifer Connoly and DAvid Bowie, Labyrinth. From start to finish it is electrical and rich in fantasty rock and some electronic instrumental music too. This album includes the beautiful song of loneliness and hope, Underground, the catchy and super Magic Dance, the fun and cheeky Chilly Down, the gentle As The Wall Falls Down and the romantic Within You. This album was proof that Bowie was still one of the greatest talents of the musical world by 1986, and had lost none of his ability to create beautiful and enchanting music.
A celebration of the career of the musician, whose death from cancer was announced on the 11th Jan 2016. Bowie's work was the soundtrack to a generation and influenced countless musicians and this features memorable music videos and performances, as well as tributes from friends and fans around the world.
