David Bowie - Starman


David Bowie - Starman (1972) HD 0815007


“There's a starman waiting in the sky / He'd like to come and meet us / But he thinks he'd blow our minds.”

This wistful ode to alien influences almost didn’t make it onto the Ziggy Stardust album, but its effect on the youth of Great Britain was immeasurable. 

Bowie’s 1972 appearance on Top Of The Pops performing this song prompted thousands to experiment with clothes, make-up, sexuality and music.
