David Bowie – I Cant Read ’97

I can’t read and I can’t write down
I don’t know a book from countdown
I don’t care which shadow gets me
All I’ve got is someone’s face

Money goes to money heaven
Bodies go to body hell
I just cough, catch the chase
Switch the channel watch the police car

I can’t read shit anymore
I just sit back and ignore
Cause I just can’t get it right, can’t get it right
I can’t read shit, I can’t read shit

When you see a famous smile
No matter where you run your mile
To be right in that photograph
Andy where’s my fifteen minutes

I can’t read shit anymore
I just sit back and ignore
I just can’t read shit anymore
Just can’t get it right, get it right,
I can’t read shit, I can’t read shit

‘I CAN’T READ ‘97’ is the second instalment of DAVID BOWIE’s IS IT ANY WONDER? EP of six unreleased and rare tracks being released once a week.

‘I CAN’T READ’ originally appeared on Tin Machine’s eponymous debut album in 1989, and was a staple in the band’s live set. In the autumn of 1996, during the mixing stages for Earthling, David re-recorded the track – which, at one stage, appeared on a mastered version of the album.

While the song’s second incarnation, ‘I CAN’T READ ‘97’, was David’s preferred solo version, it was ultimately cut from Earthling and replaced at the last minute with ‘The Last Thing You Should Do’.

This video for ‘I CAN’T READ ‘97 was shot by Tim Pope shot at rehearsals in Hartford, Connecticut in January 1997.

‘I CAN’T READ ‘97’ written by David Bowie & Reeves Gabrels is produced by David Bowie, co-produced by Reeves Gabrels and Mark Plati, and mixed by Mark Plati. The track was recorded and mixed at Right Track Recording in New York and features Gail Ann Dorsey on bass and vocals, Mike Garson on piano, and Gabrels on guitar and vocals.
