REVIEWS
Average points: 3.81 (Reviews: 57)
******
Wundert mich ja sehr, das die Original-Version hier noch nicht eingegeben wurde, dabei ist das ein David Bowie-Klassiker und sein größter Hit in den 70s, jedenfalls in den USA. Dort erreichte er damit nämlich Platz 1 (in UK 17).

Starker, funkiger Track, der auch heute noch nichts von seiner Anziehungskraft verloren hat. Musikgeschichte auch deshalb weil John Lennon mit an Bord ist (grandios mit Vocals am Ende des Songs und natürlich Gitarre). Auf dem Album "Young Americans" (1975) enthalten. Check it out!!!
*****
...sehr gut...
war am Konzert vor ein paar Monaten besonders kuuuul!!
******
auch einer meiner lieblingssongs...
****
Ganz ok, aber bei weitem nicht unter seinen 20 besten Songs, trotz kommerziellem Erfolg.
***
Gefiel mir nie... Auch heute nicht!
******
fame....... fame........ fame........ # 4 in Nl in Oktober 1975 von Album Young American.....Ausgezeichnet...
*****
cooler Song, zeitlos
**
auch die 90er-Neuaufnahme gefällt mir nicht besser...
*****
Hat mir Anfangs ganz und gar nicht gefallen. Wurde man in den Jahren 1971 bis 1974 von Bowie mit Glamrock pur verwöhnt, so wirkt "Fame" im ersten Moment doch recht farblos und ernüchternd. Bei genaueren Hinhören merkt man aber, daß ist ein typisches Bowie Stück mit einem gewissen Ohrwurmcharakter.

Hat durchaus was cooles an sich.
****
Ziemlich einfallslos.
****
auch wenn lennon mitgearbeitet hat, eine seiner schlechtesten songs - und gerade der war sein erster US #1!
Last edited: 18.12.2006 21:12
****
Was Lennon in Los Angeles im Suff schreibt reicht wohl auch zur Nr 1

gefällt mir nicht besonders
**
nicht mein fall...zu freaky

Einer der bekanntesten und auch besten Bowie-Hits, auf den ich erst durch die 90er Version vom "Pretty Woman" Soundtrack aufmerksam wurde. Das Original ist natürlich 10000mal besser und klingt richtig sexy, funky und charimatisch. All Time Favourite!!!
*****
Schöner 70s-Funk....
*****
...aus der "golden years" Zeit...Knallersong....
****
Fand ich lange Zeit dämlich, bis ich den Song mal im Film "Ritter aus Leidenschaft" (Glaub jedenfalls dass der so hiess) gehört hatte. Mittlerweile zähl ich dies zum "Soundtrack der Avantgarde".
****
ganz okay, auf die Dauer sicher nervig
****
Teilweise doch überraschend experimentell - ein echter Bowie
****
ganz ok
******
so ein geiler groove, die Nummer generell ein toller Einfall, phantstisches Arrangement....6.
**
...
*****
5 sehr gute Punkte
**
Zeer vervelende plaat van David Bowie, die maar drie minuten lang alleen maar "Faaameee" loop te schreeuwen. Wat een drama.
****
funkiger, verspielter Song aus den 70er, hiermit 1 Woche auf #9 in Norwegen 1975 - 4+...
**
weniger
****
Buena.
*****
yes funky.
***
mittelmäßig
****
Nummer van David dat niet opvalt door de hoogdravende tekst en het zingen maar wel door de muziek.
***
certainly not one of my favourites
****
Finde ich noch ganz okay.
***
aardig nummer van David, maar zeker niet zijn beste!
*****
goeie plaat van david
***
Ein bisschen funky - aber auf meiner Bowie-BestOf ein regelmässiger Skip-Kandidat.
****
▒ Ook deze misschien wat ééntonige rockplaat uit maart 1975 behoort tot zijn vele klassiekers !!! Kom toch nog net op 4 sterren !!! (NL Top 40: 8 wk / # 4) ☺!!!
*****
Tof nummer.
*
schräg, kann damit nichts anfangen.
Last edited: 22.03.2011 23:32

Schrill wie der Interpret ist auch der Song - ziemlich abgefahrener Sound für die damalige Zeit. Viele konnten damit nichts anfangen, weil es zu weit abseits vom Mainstream war.
**
Beklagenswert
******
Aan Fame heeft Bowie geen gebrek. Maar hij heeft dat wel zelf afgedwongen en daar kan je alleen maar respect voor hebben.
**
Haha, Homers Kommentar :-D Unterschreibe ich sehr gerne, nur bin ich der Meinung, dass da auch weitere Substanzen im Blut waren. Gehört zu David's miesesten Nummer, auch die Neuauflage oder das Duran-Duran-Cover sind nicht besser!
****
Pretty cool riff, it's good enough.
***
Not too bad, but can become irritating.
*
sorry, kan niet anders
**
Ganz daneben. Ist das überhaupt Musik?
**
... ab in die Mülltonne damit! ...
*****
Klasse!
*****
Good
***
Bowies två soulskivor var inga av mina favoritskivor med honom.
***
kennen wir alle aus pretty woman glaub ich aber ein kracher ist es nicht
*****
5 stars
**
klingt so gequält, mags nicht
***
Diesen "Klassiker" mag' ich gar nicht.
****
Gut, kenne ich aber nicht aus Pretty Woman, sondern schon lange vorher.
****
classy!
