They Say Our Love Won't Pay the Rent...
Marianne Faithfull's birthday was Dec. 29. No, I am not a fan. I ran across some pics of her on someone's blog while searching for something else. That never happens. I scrolled over a still of her and Bowie singing I Got You Babe from his 1980 Floor Show. Oh -- off to YouTube. It still packs a punch after all these years. It's so cute when he shakes his chest feathers.
I Got You Babe - Bowie and Faithfull
Now for something completely different. Apparently Tiny Tim and someone named Eleanor Barooshian did their own version. Tiny Tim was the precursor to William Hung. He was a talk show staple for years. Eleanor sang with a chick group called The Cake. But, that's for another time. Please note - she sings the guy parts.
