Alladin Sane is one of my all-time favorite albums. This isn't my favorite Stones song, anyway, so I think Bowie's cover is an improvement in every way.
It may not technically be a Stones cover, but I should add that Bowie's version of "Around and Around," which was a B-side of one of his early 70s hits, (possibly only in the UK -- I don't remember) is definitely the lamest Chuck Berry cover evah.
B-Side of "Drive In Saturday," I believe, though it ended up as a bonus track on one of the many Ziggy CD reissues. Loved that one, too, BTW.
Me too, Kicks ass. I'm a Mick Ronson fan.
Jeebus -- I just listened to that for the first time in eons.It evinces not the slightest chinchilla of lust. Ghastly.:-)
