On May 30, 1971, David Bowie's wife Angie gave birth to a young baby boy, who they named Zowie. Bowie was listening to a Neil Young record at home when he heard the news he'd become a father. Zowie's birth gave him the inspiration to write this song to his newborn son in the style of early 1970s Neil Young.
The English band Kooks took their name from this song. They said the song is something they can relate to as they are young and the song was a bit wacky.

Zowie reverted to his birth name, Duncan Jones, around the age of 18 and attended film school in his late twenties. He became a commercials director, directing French Connection's infamous "Kung-fu lesbian advert" in 2006. In 2009 Jones' first full-length movie, a sci-fi thriller called Moon, was released.
Rayna from Pembroke Pines, FlYes, the talented and handsome Mister B wrote this for his little boy Zowie. Awwwww. he's telling Zowie that even though that he and his wife aren't Ward and June Cleaver and may be kind of hippie-ish, they have enough love for the child to be good parents
Sophie from San Jose, CaThis song is so adorable... Take a chance with a couple of kooks hung up on romancing :)
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.
