I remember Mott the Hoople in the seventies. The band had a certain signature that drew people because the lead singer seemed to be full of apathy as he spewed out these morose lyrics - almost as though he was brand off with it all. However this worked well for me and the band was compelling with songs that had good lyrics.
All The Young Dudes had some wacky words and was written by David Bowie. This song is probably one of Mott the Hoople's most famous. It is below and I hope you enjoy.
