1984 has inspired film, stage and numerous musical interpretations from all genres.
David Bowie’s 1974 album Diamond Dogs included  “We Are the Dead”, “1984” and “Big Brother”. Bowie originally planned a musical adaptation of the novel as a full-length theatrical production, but Orwell’s widow, would not grant him the rights. A television special by Bowie was punningly called “The 1980 Floor Show” watch here.
