I like collecting songs about the fashion industry, but still my list is not quite long enough for a proper playlist, which to my mind should be 12-18 songs. If you have any to add, let me know!
David Bowie – Fashion well, obviously
Right Said Fred – I’m Too Sexy the perfect early 90s supermodel song
The Kinks – A Dedicated Follower of Fashion I haven’t heard this one yet (iTunes doesn’t have it grrr) but found it via Fops and Dandies a new favourite fashion blog.
Leonard Cohen – First we take Manhattan the best cynical fashion industry song. (Actually most of them are cynical, sarcastic, or almost parodies, aren’t they?) I like the version sung by Jennifer Warne.
Joel Plaskett Emergency – Fashionable People heard this one on Jian Ghomeshi’s new CBC show Q. It has a line I love – fashionable people, doing questionable things.
I think to qualify the song either has to have the word “Fashion” in it or directly reference the fashion industry somehow. Does anyone have any additions to the playlist?
