David Bowie-Life On Mars? / Ashes To Ashes (1980)

On The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.I chose this clip because it's from 1980, the year that Ashes to Ashes, the first single of the album Scary Monsters (and Supercreeps) came out, so probably a first listen for many back then, and Bowie presenting it to a television audience. I think it's kind of special. Life On Mars was on the 1971 album "Hunky Dory".Good Night!
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
