David Bowie – Lady Grinning Soul



PLEASE READ: OOKK yo no one cares if the runaways movie brought you here, or if you knew this so wayyy bbefore the movie. i don’t care nor does anyone else.
and the runaways were a good band that had more/ (way) better hits than just “cherry bomb” so if thats the only song you know by them don’t comment on this video with anything about the runaways! David Bowie – Lady Grinning Soul

  1. This song reminds me of my beautiful high school girlfriend. And I did touch the fullness of her breasts and I did feel the love of her caress. And she was my living end. Stunningly beautiful. And for a few short years she was mine. My Lady Grinning Soul.

  2. I had no idea that this was even in the Runaways movie…..this album is one of his best, although when released it didn't get critical acclaim…this is one of the best songs bowie ever wrote….:)

  3. The lady this was written about was an amazing woman with such a kind but passionate soul, I can’t remember her name, but just seeing her made you feel happy 😊

  4. Remember the first time I pulled this out of my mother's record collection 30 years ago! A classic and instrumentally stunning, think it 'a the piano, anyway hits deep!

  5. This is one of David Bowie personal favourite Bowie Songs .
    This is what David said of this great classic ……

    Lady Grinning Soul

    Mike Garson's piano opens with the most ridiculous and spot-on re-creation of a 19th Century music hall 'exotic' number. I can see now the 'poses plastiques' as if through a smoke-filled bar. Fans, castanets and lots of Spanish black lace and little else. Sexy, mmm? And for you, Madam?

    This was written for a wonderful young girl whom I've not seen for more than 30 years. When I hear this song she's still in her 20s, of course.

    A song will put you tantalisingly close to the past, so close that you can almost reach out and touch it. The sound of ghosts again.
