13th June – Song of the Day

SONG OF THE DAY Life on Mars? -David Bowie

Now I have posted this song before, and I shall probably post it again, as it was the seminal track for my teenage years, and it never hurts to listen to it again! A model in how to write a sing about absolutely nothing, but it still moves me. I am adding a link  so you can find out loads of interesting anoraky facts about how this song came about!

Life on Mars

I feel a whole days blogging has to be dedicated to my song of the day.  I was talking to a couple of  so called with it 12 year olds who’s only reference to David Bowie was the fact that ‘Changes’ was in the sound track of Shrek. Yikes! I remember the first time I hear d this on the radio as a teenager it changed my whole musical life. I wore out Hunky Dory -the album but have the album cover framed in pride of place in my kitchen ( thanks Veronica). And the songs means nothing. Think I just used to like the reference to the girl with the mousy hair.
