T ightened up to three-and-a-half minutes, “Fame” was even sexier as a single. The flip side, “Right,” is identical to the elpee version from Young Americans and is more representative of Bowie’s contentious soul experiment. Incidentally, I have no idea what “Right” is about; I could take a guess, but I’d hate to be wrong. “Fame” later appeared alongside “Golden Years” as a Gold Standard Series single, a pair of hot, taut tarts with the potential to melt most pieces of plastic.
