David Bowie - Cat People (Putting Out Fire)

This is a few weeks late in light of our discussion on the boards, but oh well. The version that Bowie recorded for the Let's Dance album is complete shit, but the original Moroder-produced version is totally on-point. Anyone ever seen the Schrader movie? I'm fairly certain the poster is the best part (it is, in its defense, a pretty kick-ass poster.)

Here are a couple of really interesting (long) blogs, discussions and articles I found since I saw the movie.

This is the poster in question, incidentally, which I think is indescribably sexy. The marketing for Jennifer's Body has been pretty similar - it looks similarly terrible, and Megan Fox has been plugged into the same sex symbol role that Nastassja Kinski once owned.

Say what you will about the "Cat People" version on Let's Dance, but Side 1 of that album is motherfucking outstanding.
