IS THERE LIFE ON MARS?
Can't say I was ever a DAVID BOWIE fan, to
be honest. To me, he summons up four things: The
LAUGHING GNOME, SPACE ODDITY, LIFE ON
MARS, The SNOWMAN intro - oh, make that five - and
the bad half of a duet with BING CROSBY. Okay, round
it off to a half dozen - his film, The MAN WHO FELL
To EARTH contained a couple of JIM REEVES
songs in the soundtrack.
Still, even I, philistine that I am, feel a bit sad at his
passing, so I can well imagine how devastated his die-
hard fans feel. Here, in tribute to him, is The KING'S
SINGERS version of LIFE ON MARS. They also do
a couple of neat BEATLES covers, which I'll hit you
with at a future date, you lucky peeps!
Incidentally, don't you think that actor EDDIE
REDMAYNE would be perfect for playing Bowie in
a movie of his life? He's got that androgynous look
down to a tee. What say the rest of you?
