Life On Mars – David Bowie (1971)


An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record silhouette art made from a genuine, original,45rpm, 7” single of Life On Mars from 1971, by David Bowie. Released on the RCA record label, this vinyl single has been reworked astronaut floating in space (Major Tom).

Life on Mars is a gloriously strange sci-fi anthem which is also known as (Is There) Life on Mars?, and was taken from the album Hunky Dory. The song, with piano by Rick Wakeman, has been described as a cross between a Broadway musical and a Salvador Dalí painting due to its strange lyrics. which conjures a slew of surreal images.  The line “Look at those cavemen go” is a reference to the song “Alley Oop”, a one-off hit in 1960 for American doo-wop band The Hollywood Argyles.
