CHINA GIRL – 2008 Eddy McManus’ brilliant version of the 1983 mega-hit by David Bowie. This is a must have for any Bowie music lover! It was written by Iggy Pop and David Bowie during their years in Berlin, first appearing on Pop’s debut solo album, The Idiot (1977). The song became more widely known when it was re-recorded by Bowie, who released it as the second single from his most commercially successful album, Let’s Dance (1983). The UK single release of Bowie’s version reached No. 2 for one week on 14 June 1983, while the US release reached No. 10.
