Queen Bitch was written as an homage to Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground, two massive sources of influence for David Bowie. Bowie first discovered the Velvet Underground when his manager, Kenneth Pitt, gave him an acetate of the then-unreleased The Velvet Underground and Nico in 1966. The 19-year-old Bowie fell in love with the music and with the idea of New York City as the sexy den of scum and villainy he heard in the music. The vision was so seductive that Bowie was continually drawn back to NYC throughout his life. He’s lived there continually since the late ‘90s. Is sister Flo the transvestite queen bitch?

And it looks as though they're here to stay.

Oh! You Pretty Things was the first composition to emerge from Bowie’s composition binge in late 1970 (Bowie’s new publisher nabbed it for Peter Noone to record as his debut single) and it signals a change in Bowie’s writing. For one thing, it’s likely the first song Bowie composed on piano rather than on guitar. There’s also a greater irony and clarity in Bowie’s lyric. It opens one peaceful morning in a quiet English home: Wake up you sleepy head, Put on your clothes, shake off your bed.
