Ziggy Stardust reminds me of what it was like to really feel alive in 1972, and for that, I'll always be grateful. RIP

Of all David Bowie's many distinctive personae, none have done more to lodge this most ingenious of British artists in the world's consciousness than his 1972 amalgam of the alien visitor and Christ-like rock star: Ziggy Stardust.

Cheap glamour, spacemen and ambiguous sexuality surface throughout the loosely conceptualised collection that is The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars.

The album begins and ends with its most dramatic material; "Five Years," about the impending end of the world,

If its premise sounds faintly ludicrous, then inspired and dramatic songs such as "Starman" dispel all doubts about Bowie's genius,

As a cultural and musical signpost, Ziggy Stardust points simultaneously backwards to early rock & roll and forward to the simpler, tougher inclinations of late 1970's punk and New Wave rock. As one of the defining rock albums of the 20th century, its influence is immeasurable. --James Littlewo

The songs weren't bad either. The part sci fi, part demi-monde narrative unfolds via the sophisticated use of shifting perspectives, beginning with "Five Years" and its tale of despairing humanity at the brink of destruction

From piano-led sumptuousness ("Lady Stardust") Just tried to do something. A lovely song, and of course I made it about a lovely man - Marc Bolan R.I.P.

to plain old dirty riffage ("Suffragette City") Dave was on a creative roll that would catapult him to the heights of success but ultimately lead him to destroy the Frankenstein's monster that had him and his audience confusing fantasy and reality.

. Ziggy is observed through the eyes of one besotted fan who, following the star's death, takes their own life in the thrilling climax of "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide". and the theatrically tragic "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide" brings the album and it's fictional protagonist to a close.

An androgynous look and persona was a perfect fit for "Ziggy"; He was the quintessential glam-rocker. The whole point was to create a spectacle, really over-the-top. Also,probably the basis for Elton John's "Bennie and the Jets" (IMHO). Plus, it fit Bowie's need to continue to evolve his musical styles. Even Madonna hasn't re-invented herself quite as many times as the "Thin White Duke" (although, he must be an influence for her). And, quality remains throughout his career.

DAVID BOWIE - Rock and Roll Suicide 1973

I think only one lyric is from Jacques brel. It contains lines from many different poets.
a song by David Bowie, originally released as the closing track on the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars in June 1972. It detailed Ziggy's final collapse as an old, washed-up rock star and, as such, was also the closing number of the Ziggy Stardust live show. In April 1974 RCA issued it as a single.

DAVID BOWIE - Five Years

A great poem on the meaning of life.
this is a bowie song that never stops surprising me, the way it builds to the apocalyptic 'five years' ending....incredible!!!
