I don't understand that song where David Bowie sings "I was a young American!" He wasn't America. He was British, wasn't he?

    “Young Americans” is the result of Bowie’s obsession with soul music. In a hodgepodge of political and social imagery, Bowie paints us an image of the America he saw.

    It's a song not a biography of the singer.

  • Just wait until you listen to Creedence Clearwater Revival and find out where they're from.  If you can tell me where the bayous of Berkeley are, then their music will make tons of sense to you.
