David Bowie wrote and released Changes on his album Hunky Dory in 1971 then as a single in 1972. Despite missing the 1970's Top 40, Changes has evolved into a Bowie signature song, now known all around the world as the sound to tune into when thinking about Changes. “ It turned into this monster that nobody would stop asking for at concerts: 'Dye-vid, Dye-vid – do Changes!' I had no idea it would become such a popular thing." Bowie is commonly quoted as saying. In 2004, Changes was ranked 127th on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Changes "started out as a parody of a nightclub song, a kind of throwaway" Bowie is again regularly quoted as saying. Well, it clearly seems that Bowie's 'throwaway' Changes is a boomerang that refuses to not come back: And in today’s climate of increasingly complex changes, I think that it is hardly surprising that the finite Chameleon artist, David Bowie, is Chan6es nominated King of all Change music and lyrics.
