The American jazz saxophonist David Sanborn played on this song about, amusingly enough, winning. Bowie told the Mail on Sunday June 29, 2008: "He was experimenting with sound effects at the time and I'd rather hoped he would push further into that area, but he chose to become rich and famous instead. So he did win really, didn't he?"
Sanborn has been recognized as a highly regarded session player since the late 1960s. Among the well-known recordings that utilized his sax playing are "I Can't Tell You Why" by the Eagles, "Under Pressure" by Queen with David Bowie and "Young Americans" by David Bowie.
"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
Jay-Z's 2012 "Glory" features his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's cries and coos. At less than two days old, she became the youngest ever credited artist to feature on a Billboard chart when the song debuted on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at #74.
