"China Girl" is a song co-written by David Bowie and Iggy Pop during their years in Berlin, first appearing on Pop's album "The Idiot" (1977). However, it was not popularized until it was rerecorded and released by Bowie on his album "Let's Dance" (1983). Under the auspices of Nile Rodgers, the song was given a much more commercial sheen than Pop's darker, more roughly-produced version. It continues the theme established in the video for "Let's Dance". The song was again edited for single release, but attracted more attention for its striking video. David Malletís clip, shot mainly in the Chinatown district of Sydney. The latter's bared buttocks caused the video to generate some lurid tabloid headlines, though the clip went on to win an MTV award. The UK single release reached #2 for one week on June 14, 1983. The US release reached #10. The song was a regular for Bowie's live shows for the rest of the '80s. Tip ;)
