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, let's round it off to a half dozen - his 1976 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 diehard 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?
