Bowie has a better voice.
I`m not keen on Iggy`s voice on this track.
So Bowie for me.

2 live versions need to be compared.
But for now definitely Iggy's. The twang in the guitar lifts the song.

So many television companies use this as backing music for promos etc...and it works perfectly.

Bowie should've renamed his version 'Lacklustre For Life', I think.

Mist.

is Bowie using an auto-tuner in this?

iggy's original version by a mile ... i don't find bowie's unpleasant though.

and while we are on the subject ... why the fuck haven't THE IDIOT and LUST FOR LIFE been given the deluxe treatment ... or even remastered ? these are SEMINAL albums ... whole swathes of English music would not exist without them (Joy Division being a prime example).

Re-mastering is supposed to add that certain 'something' and improve the recordings. In the case of the Idiot certainly, any tinkering with it would remove the grimy dirtiness that comes from the vinyl. It's perfect as it is, it's not supposed to be all shiny and sparkly.

Iggy's version is vastly superior. I really remember it's great use in the movie Trainspotting.
