Tonight 1984

This was released immediately after the previous album’s tour drew to a close to capitalise on the huge success of Let’s Dance. Wanting to retain recently-acquired swathes of new fans, Bowie kept the overall vibe very similar. While this is the case, Tonight is not as hard-hitting and glossy as Let’s Dance, featuring cover versions and soft-reggae tunes. His long-time friend and colleague Iggy Pop worked extensively in the studio with him, also co-writing two songs. Of the three tracks released as singles, Blue Jean stands out, not least for the 20-minute promo film directed by Julien Temple. Produced by Derek Bramble and Hugh Padgham, Tonight was a commercial success, while being generally received by critics as nothing particularly special.
