Bowie re-recorded the song in 1984 for his new album, which also featured two new co-compositions with Pop (including Tonight’s B-side, "Tumble and Twirl") – causing some cynics to remark that the whole album was largely motivated by Bowie trying to earn some money for his friend. The original spoken word introduction of the 1977 version, establishing that the lyric is addressed to a lover dying of a heroin overdose, was excised for Bowie’s version, substantially changing the message of the song. Bowie claimed at the time that he didn’t want to inflict this reading on guest vocalist Tina Turner, though it’s also likely that this was to soften the song and make it more commercial.
