Bowie Song of the Day – “Life on Mars?”

A song about a girl thrown out of her parent’s house as they argue, and ending up at the cinema, seems an unlikely subject for a Bowie song. But it became a fan favorite, and it’s one of my favorites as well.

I have to admit, since I got a copy of Barbra Streisand’s 1974 album Butterfly before I got a copy of 1971’s Hunky Dory, I got to know the song through a cover. Please forgive me.
