Monday Melody: All The Young Dudes (David Bowie/Mott the Hoople)


The late David Bowie, who died early this year, was a musical visionary, way ahead of his time musically.  “All The Young Dudes” was recorded by Mott the Hoople and released in 1973 and became a radio hit that year. I can’t listen to it now without feeling a little sad that Bowie left this earth so soon.

This video includes both versions–Bowie’s original and the hit by Mott the Hoople. Mott the Hoople’s is the one I’m most familiar with.

  1. Gotta love time travel. 😀 I know what you mean about feeling a bit sad. These old tunes do the same to me.

    Never heard a Bowie song that anyone has come close to doing justice to, but I appreciate that some have tried. I think it’s to do with the passion and soul that Bowie engaged with – he never ‘just sang’.
