Let's Dance is a song by David Bowie

The album was produced by Nile Rodgers, who gave the album a funky sound that was something different for Bowie. Rodgers founded the Disco band Chic and produced hits for Diana Ross, including "Upside Down" and "I'm Coming Out." He also produced Madonna's 1985 album Like a Virgin.

Stevie Ray Vaughan played lead guitar. Bowie was impressed when he saw Vaughan perform at the Montreaux Jazz festival a year earlier. When Vaughan received the call from Bowie to play on the record, he was (although not literally) in the middle of recording his own album, Texas Flood. (thanks, James - Tracy, CA)

This was Bowie's only transatlantic #1, and according to 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh, he described this as "Positive, emotional and uplifting." (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for all above)

Smashing Pumpkins covered this song live in 1998 along with Joy Division's "Transmission" in a 25 minute jam. (thanks, SJ - skalj, Denmark)

Craig David's 2007 UK Top 10 hit "Hot Stuff" extensively samples this song.
