Live on The Dinah Shore Show:
One of Bowie’s funkiest tunes with some great guitar work by Carlos Alomar and Earl Slick, “Stay” manages to do what I think Bowie was maybe trying to do with Let’s Dance – be both a successful pop song and an avant garde work of art.
I don’t think its a coincidence that Bowie was attracted to the work of Andy Warhol. I’ve often pondered that Bowie was attempting to do with music what Warhol did with paintings. I can’t prove this, but it seems right. Hmmm.
