One David Bowie song?

David Bowie lived in Australia for 10 years from 1982 to 1992.
He based himself in Sydney and regularly traveled to the outback and rainforests.
In 1983 he traveled to the small NSW outback town of Carinda as well as the Warrumbungle National Park near Coonabarabran and recorded the Music Video for his song, Let's Dance with some local indigenous Australians.
The Aboriginal couple in the Pub scene and in the whole video is played by Terry Roberts and Joelene King, two students from Sydney's Aboriginal Islander Dance Theatre.
As Bowie opted for real people, some residents of the 194 residents village of Carinda are in the pub too, watching and mocking the couple.
They do not understand who David is nor what the take is all about, hence their behaviour towards the couple as seen in the video is real.
This video was made in Australia covering the issues of racism and oppression against the aboriginal people's.
