Music Video Of The Day: David Bowie 'Boys Keep Swinging'

By Lisa White in Arts & Entertainment on Jan 8, 2015 11:00PM

As we mentioned earlier, today David Bowie celebrates his 68th birthday. It's well known that we're big Bowie fans here at Chicagoist and we've had the icon on our brain since the MCA just closed up shop on their record breaking David Bowie Is exhibit. And, as we mentioned earlier, you should totally head over to the Metro tomorrow night to celebrate the birth of The Thin White Duke.

We're celebrating in our own way today with a constant rotation of his music on the office speakers. One of our favorite videos shown in the MCA exhibit was the gender bending "Boys Keep Swinging." The song recently was back in the national spotlight after Bowie drew attention to the fact that while performing the song in 1979 on Saturday Night Live, the show censored lines referencing men checking each other out but failed to catch the very aroused climaxing fake penis Bowie threw in at the end of his performance. For a NSFW gif, check out the article about it on Sploid. In the meantime enjoy the original video below.

Since you apparently can't watch music videos on television anymore, we'll showcase one here daily. There's no rhyme or reason, time or season, to which video we'll choose. Have a suggestion? Contact us at
