DAVID BOWIE Released ‘STARMAN’ Today In 1972

14 April 2020

DAVID BOWIE released the stellar and otherworldly ‘STARMAN’ single on 14 April 1972, today 48 years ago. It’s the fourth track on his legendary LP The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars which launched his best-known artistic persona ever. It was actually his first hit since ‘Space Oddity’ three years before, in 1969. Starman peaked at #10 in the UK.

He’d like to come and meet us
But he thinks he’d blow our minds
There’s a starman waiting in the sky
He’s told us not to blow it
‘Cause he knows it’s all worthwhile
He told me
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

Here’s the Top Of The Pops performance back then featuring the great, late Mick Ronson
