As the title track off his 1975 album, Bowie came back with a different sound for his first taste of crossover success. Described as 'plastic soul,' the album featured his first number one hit in the U.S with the song Fame. Interestingly enough, Bowie recorded most of the vocals for the album in a span of 8 days. Usually recording at midnight after hearing that Frank Sinatra did the same. In a way the song speaks to most of us as young Americans in the game, to make serious moves but with a desire to make a difference.
