"Station to Station" is a song written and recorded by David Bowie in 1975 and released in 1976. It is the title track and opener for the album of the same name. The song is Bowie's longest studio recording, clocking in just above 10 minutes. Structurally, the song builds from a droning, guitar-driven introductory portion that mimics a train building up speed, to an uptempo section punctuated by the refrain "It's too late."
A live performance recorded on 23 March 1976 was released on Live Nassau Coliseum '76, part of the 2010 reissues of the Station to Station album.
A live version, edited from recordings made at concert performances in Providence, RI on 5 May 1978 and in Boston, MA on 6 May 1978, was released on Stage. This version was also featured in the Christiane F. movie, where Bowie made an appearance as himself performing the song at a concert. An edit of this version was released on the soundtrack of the film.
A live version recorded on 12 September 1983 was released on the concert film Serious Moonlight.
