Starman lyrics

Goodbye love
Didn't know what time it was the lights were low oh how
I leaned back on my radio oh oh
Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll 'lotta soul, he said
Then the loud sound did seem to fade a ade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase ha hase
That weren't no d.j. that was hazy cosmic jive

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

I had to phone someone so I picked on you ho ho
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too! o o
Switch on the tv we may pick him up on channel two
Look out your window I can see his light a ight
If we can sparkle he may land tonight a ight
Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

Starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

More info about Starman lyrics

check here the lyrics for Starman, the 4th song of the 11 recorded for the album Ziggy Stardust, with a total running time of 38:29, by David Bowie. It was released on June 16, 1972 via RCA Records, and produced by David Bowie, Ken Scott.

The lyrics describe Ziggy Stardust, the character Bowie embodies on the album, sending a message of hope to Earth's youth via radio. Previously, on the first song on the album, 'Five Years,' the destruction of the planet in five years had been announced. Now, salvation is presented by the hand of an alien referred to as 'Starman'. The story is told from the point of view of one of the boys who listens to Ziggy. According to Bowie's remarks in a chat with William S. Burroughs for Rolling Stone in 1973, Ziggy Stardust is not Starman, but his messenger on Earth.
The music features Mick Ronson's acoustic guitar and string arrangements and is similar in style to Bowie's previous album, Hunky Dory (1971). The choruses are slightly based on those of Judy Garland's song 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow', in the movie The Wizard of Oz. Other influences mentioned for the piece include T. Rex songs 'Telegram Sam' and 'Hot Love' (in references to boogie and backing vocals), as well as 'You Keep Me Hangin' On' by The Supremes. (on guitar and piano).

From a commercial point of view, 'Starman' marked a milestone in Bowie's career. It was his first hit single since 'Space Oddity', released three years earlier. New Musical Express critics Roy Carr and Charles Shaar Murray noted that 'many people thought it was their first recording since' Space Oddity 'and believed it to be a sequel to the previous single.'
The album was initially sold at a steady, unspectacular rate, but received many positive reviews. For example, John Peel referred to him as 'a classic, a gem.' 4 The trend changed after Bowie starred opposite The Spiders from Mars on the BBC show Top of the Pops in July 1972 (although This performance is often cited as the first live performance of the song on British television, actually it was first performed on ITV's Lift Off With Ayshea program.) 4 According to author David Buckley, many fans of Bowie considers that this was the moment in which they surrendered to the artist.5 After her, the album managed to go from 10th to 5th position on the British charts. In the United States, it ranked 65th.
In 1999, the British music magazine Q included 'Starman' in a list of the best hundred singles of all time, made with the votes of its readers.
