David Bowie spent the '70s constantly challenging his music with a variety of collaborators—Tony Visconti, Mick Ronson, Brian Eno—who found new ways to help him expand and conquer unfamiliar terrain. For 1983's Let's Dance, Bowie hired Chic's Nile Rodgers to get his groove back, and the natural pairing led to one of Bowie's most successful albums. Dance-pop had never been far from Bowie's domain; he'd scored with the self-described "plastic soul" of "Fame" and the Young Americans LP back in 1975. But the '80s required extra juice, and together Rodgers and Bowie turned "China Girl" (written with Iggy Pop for Pop's 1977 Bowie–produced album The Idiot) into a fantastic, paranoid cityscape, with strong but never overpowering synthesizers fashioning a new sound. The title track bristles with Chic's cold funk energy, with no-wave saxophones and manic, staccato keyboards setting the template for Bowie's eerily detached, near-militaristic vocals. The rerecording of the Giorgio Moroder/Bowie collaboration "Cat People" is far more aggressive than the original soundtrack version.
