CSPC: David Bowie Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 5 – Let’s Dance… Just a bit

Album tracks from Let’s Dance aren’t as strong as those from his early 70s classics. With half of the songs being sizable hits though this has very little impact. Let’s Dance remains a very strong track with 66 million streams while three more songs total 53 million. Combined, this equals to 217,000 album sales.

Clearly, next two albums are massive disappointments in comparison. No song from Never Let Me Down comes even close to 1 million plays.

Also the version of All The Young Dudes with Ian Hunter and Bowie on vocals on the Mott The Hoople page doesn’t show up on his features.

Just noticed that a number of Bowie songs have recently been been greyed out on spotify and their totals no longer show on the spotify tool report.They’re all on the albums Platinum Collection and Sound + Vision.
Also for some reason the songs credited to Bowie and the Spider on the Bowie at the Beeb album have a separate artist id??
