David Bowie challenged his pianist Mike Garson's knowledge of classical music when recording this song. Garson recall to Uncut magazine: "He said, 'to know the Stravinsky Ocetet? Can you play something like that in your solo?' I ran downstairs to the record stall, listening to the piece again – I hadn't heard it in 30 years - then I played this crazy solo and he was thrilled."
"Lean On" was originally sent by Major Lazer to both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj's camps as a slower reggae track. After both parties rejected the tune, Major Lazer recruited Danish singer MØ to supply vocals and recorded it themselves.
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
