Suffragette City

“Suffragette City” is a single by David Bowie. Recorded towards the end of the Ziggy Stardust sessions, “Suffragette City” is a trademark piece of early 1970s Bowie glam, with a piano riff heavily influenced by Little Richard, a lyrical reference to the film A Clockwork Orange (the word “droogie”) and the sing-along hook "Wham bam thank you ma'am!”, and an influence on the punk rock movement that came several years after the song's release. The song has become a fixture of Bowie’s live shows, and one of his best known album cuts. In 1976, it was issued as a single to promote the ChangesOneBowie compilation in the UK, with the US single edit of “Stay” on the B-side. The single failed to chart. Suffragette City was also featured as a track in the 2006 Atari game Driver: Parallel Lines.


David Bowie (b. David Robert Jones on 8th January 1947 in Brixton, London, UK, d. 10th January 2016 in New York, USA) was an English rock singer, songwriter, musician, and actor. Active during six decades of popular music and frequently reinventing his music and image, Bowie is widely regarded as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. Shortly after releasing his 25th studio album Blackstar, it was announced Bowie died on 10 January 2016, following an eighteen-month battle with cancer. Show more ...
