And here's DB himself, covering it acoustically, probably during the Earthling years [aka The Time of the Nasty Nasty Soul Spot].
He covered it live at the Beeb a few years later in 2000 [the Neo-Scrawny Years] with that unforgettable Bowie smile.

I see more of David Bowie than Fess Parker in Tonner's upcoming Davy Crockett doll, but then, Tonner isn't known for accurate likenesses.
While I'm commenting, the entire Agnes Dreary line makes me crack up. The costumes remind me strongly of the production and costume design for the Series of Unfortunate Events movie. I especially like Agnes' Dreary Dinner Party Dress because I am a sucker for poofy sleeves. I also like Sister Dreary's default outfit, a magnificently impractical hobble dress. Though Agnes Dreary is supposed to be a little Gothy girl, she and her fellow products remind me less of Gothy dudes and more of people in Victorian photographs when they had to sit very still for long periods of time to be rendered in black-and-white. It's an attractive aesthetic.
I want to see Zoo because it sounds like an unusual treatment of bestiality. I do not want to see Teeth because it sounds like a stupid, stereotypical treatment of vagina dentata. I wonder how long I'll have to wait before Sundance films hit either the theaters [hah!] or the video stores [more likely].
In other news, it's "BESTIALITY," people, not "BEASTIALITY."
In even more other news, I still want to see Casino Royale and Arthur and the Invisibles. I'm curious about The Last Mimzy, which is coming out in March and which has an Escape to Witch Mountain atmosphere, especially from the trailer. Penelope, with a limited release in April, looks interesting, but will probably be a turd because Hollywood couldn't do an affecting, realistic and powerful fairy tale even if Jack ZIpes walked them through the process.
And don't forget Spiderman 3 [hooray!], coming out in early May. And then there's Shrek 3, the franchise juggernaut for which should be hung, drawn, quartered and pulverized on high speed in an industrial blender because it ran out of ideas and humor right around the end of Shrek 1. Also coming in May is Pirates of the Caribbean 3, which I'm sure will be a ponderous and thunderous headache of a movie, but which contains Johnny Depp and Keith Richards [!], so I might have to see it.
There's a Nancy Drew [!] movie coming out in June, and it will probably be a neutered PG stinker.
