David Bowie - Let's Dance mp3 album
Let's Dance is the 15th studio album by David Bowie. It was originally released in April 1983, almost three years after his previous album, Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)
Let’s Dance is the first single and titular track from David Bowie’s 1983 album Let’s Dance. Produced by Nile Rodgers of Chic, Let’s Dance is a direct shift from the post-punk and art rock sound Bowie experimented with on his 1980 album Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) to a funk, post-disco, and dance pop sound. This stylistic change aligned Bowie with the popular music of the ‘80s and led to Let’s Dance becoming one of Bowie’s biggest-selling tracks. These references constistute part of the several statements by Bowie featured on the album concerning the integration of one culture with another. The pop appeal of Let’s Dance garnered Bowie an entirely new base of fans who were young and unaware of Bowie’s prior works and successes. Bowie’s subsequent releases Tonight and Never Let Me Down were a continuation of this shift, which Bowie has described as an effort to cater to the new audience.
Let's Dance comes tearing out of the gate, propulsed by the skittering "Modern Love," the seductively menacing "China Girl," and the brittle funk of the title track.

Let’s Dance may have had a ground-breaking sound and a popularity that Bowie clearly ached for, but it’s often a mundane album, as songs like Ricochet and Shake It mark time until a single turns up. (It’s possibly significant that one of the best songs here is Criminal World, a cover of a song by obscure Bowie clones Metro). But when Bowie growled, on another of the album’s excellent singles Modern Love, "I know when to go out, And when to stay in, And get things done," he wasn’t kidding. Let’s Dance was literally the template for 80s Bowie – blonde, suited and smiling
