“Dead Man Walking” is a song written by David Bowie and Reeves Gabrels and released as single from the 1997 album Earthling. It was a number 32 hit in the UK. The guitar riff used in the intro dates back to the mid-60s when Jimmy Page taught this to Bowie. Bowie later used it for his song “The Supermen” in 1970, and revived it 25 years later for “Dead Man Walking”. Read on...

Song lines: ♪ Dance my way falling up through the years ... Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly ... Like a dead man walking
