EDITORS’ NOTES

Bowie's ‘70s work established him as the ultimate thinking-person's rock star, but 1983's Let's Dance made him a full-blown pop star. Partnering with producer Nile Rodgers of Chic, Bowie shows off his Top 40 chops on the Motown-influenced "Modern Love" and the hard-grooving title track (featuring a guitar solo from a fledgling Stevie Ray Vaughan). The R&B-flecked sheen that Rodgers brings to tracks like the sumptuous and tender "China Girl" makes the whole album sparkle.
