"Fame" was inspired by a guitar riff written by Carlos Alomar the title was from John Lennon, and was hurriedly engineered by Bowie with Lennon contributing in the studio. Lennon was given a co-writing credit due to the lyrics being inspired by conversations he had with Bowie on the subject, and because Bowie acknowledged that Lennon singing "Fame!" over Alomar's guitar riff was the catalyst for the song. Lennon's voice was heard at the ending of the song, repeating the word: "FAME, FAME, FAME", from a fast track to a slow track of his voice, as it started from a high voice, culminating in his regular voice, and ending in a lower deep voice, before Bowie finished the song with the words: "Fame, What's your name, what's your name, what's your name, what's your name, what's your name".
