Description

Original colour version of David Bowie's Life on Mars - Enhanced picture & sound [HQ stereo] 

"Life on Mars?" is a song by David Bowie first released in 1971 on the album Hunky Dory and also released as a single. The song - which BBC Radio 2 later called "a cross between a Broadway musical and a Salvador Dalí painting" - featured guest piano work by keyboardist Rick Wakeman. When released as a single in 1973, it reached #3 in the UK and stayed on the chart for thirteen weeks. The song re-entered the UK charts at #55 over 30 years later, largely because of its use in the original British television series Life on Mars. Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph ranked it as #1 in his 100 Greatest Songs of All Time list. He also commented on the song:
" A quite gloriously strange anthem, where the combination of stirring, yearning melody and vivid, poetic imagery manage a trick very particular to the art of the song: to be at once completely impenetrable and yet resonant with personal meaning. You want to raise your voice and sing along, yet Bowie’s abstract cut-up lyrics force you to invest the song with something of yourself just to make sense of the experience. And, like all great songs, it's got a lovely tune."
