Sweet Thing

Walking on Planet C

Sweet Thing

Here's another cover song by my pre-CHIC Big Apple Band.

When working with David Bowie on "China Girl," I played a modified version of the guitar riff from "Sweet Thing" on it. Typically, when I write singles I put a hook at the start of the song.

I was inspired by this Rufus guitar riff because I thought it had an Asian sound. I played the riff right at the start of "China Girl" before the band comes in. To my surprise David loved it, and that was indeed a Sweet Thing.
