I'm glad you asked:

"Fame '90"

A remixed version of "Fame" was released by EMI in 1990 to coincide with the Sound+Vision Tour and the release of the Changesbowie compilation. Bowie wanted to remix a successful American single for the tour & album release, and of the two options ("Let's Dance" and "Fame"), "Let's Dance" was simply too recent. Bowie liked the choice: "It covers a lot of ground, Fame; it stands up really well in time. It still sounds potent. It's quite a nasty, angry little song. I quite like that."[2]
The "Gass Mix" was also included on the Pretty Woman soundtrack.
Track listing

Song written by David Bowie, Carlos Alomar, and John Lennon.
US CD single (Rykodisc RCD5 1018)
  1. "Fame '90 (with Queen Latifah)" – 4:10
  2. "Fame '90 (House Mix)" – 5:58
  3. "Fame '90 (Gass Mix)" – 3:38
  4. "Fame '90 (Hip Hop Mix)" – 5:58
  5. "Fame '90 (Absolutely Nothing Premeditated/Epic Mix)" – 14:25
West Germany maxi CD single (EMI CDP 560-20-3805-2)
  1. "Fame '90 (House Mix)" - 5:58
  2. "Fame '90 (Hip Hop Mix)" - 5:58
  3. "Fame '90 (Gass Mix)" - 3:38
  4. "Fame '90 (Queen Latifah's Rap Version)" - 3:10
"Exclusive Changes pack" 7" vinyl single (FAMES 90)
  1. "Fame '90 (Gass Mix)" – 3:38
  2. "Fame '90 (Queen Latifah's Rap Version)" - 3:10
Limited edition 7" vinyl picture disc (FAME PD 90)
  1. "Fame '90 (Gass Mix)" – 3:38
  2. "Fame '90 (Bonus Beat Mix)" – 4:45
  • The single was released in a variety of formats: as a 7" single, a cassette single, a 12" single, CD singles and two limited edition releases: a picture disc (featuring the unique "Bonus Beat mix") and a 7" envelope pack that included 3 prints reflecting different phases in Bowie's career and a unique mix of Queen Latifah's mix[12]
Video

Film director Gus Van Sant directed the promotional video for this version, which featured clips from many of Bowie’s previous videos.[12] In the music video, Bowie also performs a dance with Louise Lecavalier, one of the main dancers of the Québécois contemporary dance troupe La La La Human Steps (whom Bowie would collaborate with on the Sound + Vision tour).[13]
David Bowie's "Fame" was used as the soundtrack of an animated music video of the same title, directed by Richard Jefferies (screenwriter) and Mark Kirkland while students at California Institute of the Arts. The film, released in 1975, went on to win the Student Academy Award for animation and aired on NBC's The Midnight Special (TV series).
Other releases

  • "Fame '90" also appeared on:
    • Changesbowie (1990)

Are you sure? I'm pretty positive it's your favorite song of all time.

Fame '90 (James Murphy Rework) as a late addition to the finals! It runs 28:42 in length.

Anyone who doesn't vote for Five Years has a heart made of fucking coal.

Can someone tell me what the chord is in Ziggy Stardust at about 2:55? It's been used in another song I really like but I can't quite put my finger on it at the moment and it's annoying the hell out of me.
