"Nightclubbing" as written by and David/pop Bowie....
Nightclubbing we're nightclubbing
We're what's happening
Nightclubbing we're nightclubbing
We're an ice machine
We see people brand new people
They're something to see
When we're nightclubbing
Bright-white clubbing
Oh isn't it wild?
Nightclubbing we're nightclubbing
We're walking through town
Nightclubbing we're nightclubbing
We walk like a ghost
We learn dances brand new dances
Like the nuclear bomb
When we're nightclubbing
Bright white clubbing
Oh isn't it wild . . .

    General CommentShould have been a duet! The mood of Grace's version matches Iggy's to a tee. Actually now that I think of it Grace and Iggy would make the perfect duo.

    Yes, the song is about being part of an elite scene (art/music/nightclub/whatever). Being friends with the 'right' people. Living a glam life. Snorting drugs. Knowing where the after-after-after party will be.

    And eventually you catch yourself walking through the streets at twilight amazed at it all and also disgusted with yourself.

    Makes me think of Warhol's concept of celebrity.
    Or at least what my concept of Warhol's concept of celebrity.

    General CommentI think ultimately this song is a cynical poke about how contrived and pretentiuos the 80s club scene was becoming. the mood and languid tone of the song add to the effect
