Life On Mars

Treinta años después vuelve a estar en la picota por su aparición en la banda sonora de la serie homónima de la BBC y el acompañamiento de una campaña publicitaria televisiva de tarjetas de crédito. Siempre he sido muy de BOWIE , el tema Life On Mars?, de su álbum Hunky Dory (1971) sigue siendo tan actual y transgresor como el primer día.!por este motivo dejo un pequeño botón de muestra en este blog de lo grandioso ( musicalmente hablando) que ha sido y será DAVID BOWIE dentro del panorama musical .


It’s a god-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling “No”
And her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she’s hooked to the silver screen

But the film is a saddening bore
‘Cause she’s lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It’s the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he’ll ever know
He’s in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It’s on America’s tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
‘Cause Lennon’s on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
‘Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It’s about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on
