David Christie (1 January 1948 – 11 May 1997) was a French singer. Born Jacques Pepino in Tarare, he also went by the nicknames of James Bolden and Napoleon Jones. He is best known for the hits "Saddle Up" (1982) and "I Love to Love" which are included on various 1980s compilation albums.


As a composer working with lyricist Jack Robinson, Christie using the name James Bolden went on to write songs that have sold more than 50 million records around the world. Their hits include: "I Love to Love (But My Baby Loves to Dance)", "Love Me Like a Lover" and "Rendezvous" (Tina Charles); "Saddle Up" (David Christie); "Strut Your Funky Stuff" (Frantique); "(If You Want It) Do It Yourself" (Gloria Gaynor); and "Do or Die" (Grace Jones).

In 1973 Christie had his first child, Nathalie, with Françoise Richard and later had a second daughter, Julia, born of his relationship with the singer Nina Morato. Christie committed suicide in 1997 in Capbreton, following the accidental death of his daughter Julia.
