So this is a Luther Vandross song from the mid '70s which Bowie heard Mike Garson performing and decided to change the lyrics and call his own with Vandross given a co-writing credit. David called it "Fascination" and put it on the Young Americans album. Luther didn't get around to recording his own version until the following year. No co-writing credit this time though.
