Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps), also known simply as Scary Monsters, is the 14th studio album by David Bowie, released on 12 September 1980 by RCA Records. It was Bowie's final studio album on the label and his first following the Berlin Trilogy of Low, "Heroes" and Lodger (1977–1979). Though considered very significant in artistic terms, the trilogy had proven less successful commercially.

Scary monsters, super creeps Keep me running, running scared Scary monsters, super creeps Keep me running, running scared. She asked me to stay And I stole her room She asked for my love And I gave her a dangerous mind Now she's stupid in the street And she can't socialise Well I love the little girl And I'll love her till the day she dies. She wails Jimmy's guitar sound Jealousies scream Waiting at the light know what I mean. Bowie compares the uncertainty of his upcoming career in the 80s to the anxiety one feels when entering a relationship. In a promo interview for the album, he stated that the song was from the perspective of the man, and his conflicted feelings about his influence on the girl. This theme of anxiety and self-doubt continues throughout Scary Monsters, making this an essential title track. It was released as the 3rd single for the album, with B-side Because You’re Young. Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)" Track Info. Written By David Bowie.

While the album partly serves as Bowie’s final goodbye to his career up to that point (with referential songs), he also questions what opportunities await him in the 80s with others. Songs like It’s No Game (originally composed as a demo in 1970), and Ashes to Ashes (which lyrically pays homage to Space Oddity ’s Major Tom) bring that nostalgic factor of Bowie’s 60s-70s career to the album as a bookend for it. Meanwhile, other songs like Fashion or Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) showcase a more worldly focus (conformity with the norm, social anxiety, et., and these serve as more.
