Ziggy Stardust – David Bowie

Another song for our week’s theme, Space Odyssey.

Ziggy Stardust is the title song of David Bowie’s 1972 album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars”. The album is considered one of the best rock albums of all time. Ziggy, the main character of the story, is the human incarnation of an alien, and is attempting to present humanity with a message of hope, in the last five years of its existence. He is, though, like any other rock and roll star, sexually promiscuous, deep into drugs, and with a message of peace and love at the ready.

And yes, David Bowie, has mismatched eyes, but for a different reason than you would think: “David Bowie’s Mismatched Eyes Story”. Nonetheless, hes got a “god given ass”, to put it in his own words.

Lyrics:

Oh
Oooh yeah
Ah
Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with weird and gilly
And the spiders from mars. he played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man, then we were ziggy’s band

Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from japan, he could lick ’em by smiling
He could leave ’em to hang
They came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan.

So where were the spiders while the fly tried to break our balls
Just the beer light to guide us,
So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

Oh
Ooh oh

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass, he was the nazz
With god given ass
He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar

Making love with his ego ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man i had to break up the band.

Oh yeah
Ooooooo
Ziggy played guitaarrrrrr
