David Bowie - Life on Mars

.


David Bowie - Life on Mars


This is for me cos I like this song so much!
(Remember this was recorded 40 years ago!)







"Life on Mars?" is a song by David Bowie first released in 1971 on the album Hunky Dory. The song—which BBC Radio 2 later called "a cross between a Broadway musical and a Salvador Dalí painting" featured guest piano work by keyboardist Rick Wakeman. When released as a single in 1973, it reached #3 in the UK and stayed on the chart for thirteen weeks. The song re-entered the UK charts at #55 over 30 years later, largely because of its use in the original English television series Life on Mars. Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph ranked it as #1 in his 100 Greatest Songs of All Time list.  He also commented on the song:

    "A quite gloriously strange anthem, where the combination of stirring, yearning melody and vivid, poetic imagery manage a trick very particular to the art of the song: to be at once completely impenetrable and yet resonant with personal meaning. You want to raise your voice and sing along, yet Bowie’s abstract cut-up lyrics force you to invest the song with something of yourself just to make sense of the experience. And, like all great songs, it's got a lovely tune."

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 Amerika'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

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?

Emo series boys (64) - Josh

ANDREJ PEJIC (3) - 20 years Black & White

.

Andrej Pejic 

Andrej is NOT emo but because of his stunning looks I think he'll fit in perfectly here!

Height: 6'2" / 1.88
Chest: 36.5 / 92
Waist: 30 / 76
Suit: 39L / 49
Shoes: 10 / 44

Stepping into the industry and turning it on it’s head is no simple feat and for that, Chadwick Model Andrej Pejic lands himself a place on our 2011 Faces feature. Tea with the Queen of England, walking in the couture shows, covering magazines and booking a couple of campaigns to boot, Andrej is not one of the models who only appears successful in the magazines but has been booking the money jobs as well. While it’s true that it hasn’t been without a few naysayers and detractors, the thin boy seems to not be slowing down any time soon, hopefully opening the doors for at least a few more in his wake.

Pejic was born in Tuzla. He has one older brother Igor. Their mother, Jadranka Savić, is Serbian and their father, Vlada Pejić, Croatian. The parents divorced shortly after Andrej's birth. During the Bosnian War, he fled to Serbia with his mother, brother and grandmother, settling in a refugee camp near Belgrade. When asked if he found his childhood difficult, Pejic said:
No, I was happy. The camp was a community. We went to school and I had lots of friends – mainly girls. Everybody played outside. My memories are very carefree.

Andrej met his father for the first time when he was four years old. His mother wanted him to have a relationship with his dad so he and brother Igor would spend a month every summer with their dad.
After the 1999 NATO bombing of Serbia, Pejic's mother felt unsafe and decided to initiate immigration process for Australia. In 2000 the family moved to Melbourne, Australia as political refugees when Pejic was eight years old.
