“DJ” was a single by David Bowie. It was taken from the album Lodger in the UK, being released on June 29, 1979. A cynical comment on the cult of the DJ, the track is noted for Adrian Belew’s guitar solo, which was recorded in multiple takes, and then mixed back together for the album track. The single was an edited version, but was still possibly too uncommercial for substantial chart success – it peaked at #29 in the UK, and was not released in other markets. The song was performed live for the first time on Bowie’s Outside Tour in 1995. David Mallet filmed a music video for the song, featuring Bowie destroying a DJ studio, mixed with Bowie strolling around London and attracting a crowd of curious passers-by.
