    Sources differ as to who the track was written for. According to authors Nicholas Pegg, David Buckley and Christopher Sandford, the track was supposedly written for Elvis Presley, who turned it down. Bowie recalled that Presley had heard the demos and, because both artists were signed to RCA Records at the time, Presley's manager Colonel Tom Parker thought that Bowie should write songs for Presley. Bowie stated that he had "adored" Presley and would have loved to work with him. Although the artists' office contacted each other, nothing ever came to fruition.

    "Golden Years" is a song written and recorded by David Bowie in 1975. It was originally released in a shortened form as a single in November 1975, and in its full-length version in January the following year on the Station to Station album.

    During the sessions for 1975's Young Americans Bowie changed the musicians he worked with and recruited Luther Vandross, Carlos Alomar, and Andy Newmark. Oh, and also John Lennon for the song "Fame"

    Bowie wrote this with the intention of giving it to Elvis Presley, but he reportedly refused the song :(

    "Golden Years" was written and recorded by David Bowie in 1975, a period when Bowie's cocaine addiction was at its peak. Watch this 70s flashback from Bowie performing this song on "Soul Train": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8u8mODGOlg
