The eraser thing at the end is totally worth it.


David Bowie: Life on Mars, 1973

Directed By Mick Rock, July 1973.

"Life on Mars?" is a song by David Bowie first released in 1971 on the album Hunky Dory. The song, which BBC Radio 2 later called "a cross between a Broadway musical and a Salvador Dal painting", featured guest piano work by keyboardist and Yes member Rick Wakeman. When released as a single in 1973, it reached #3 in the UK and stayed on the chart for 13 weeks. The song re-entered the UK charts at #55 over 30 years later, largely because of a TV show by the same name that used the song.

In February 1999, Q magazine listed the single as one of the 100 greatest of all time, as voted by the readers. It has continued to chart in the Q 'best of' polls, featuring most recently in 2006 at #45. A BBC Radio 2 poll in 1986 crowned it as the best David Bowie song of all time.

As early as 1974 Barbra Streisand released a version of the song on her album Butterfly. The song has also been covered by Italian artist L'Aura and by pop artist Mig Ayesa and American pop musician Michelle Branch.

Kermit Sings The Rainbow Connection

A popular song written by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher and originally performed by Kermit the Frog (Jim Henson) in the opening scene of The Muppet Movie in 1979.

By extension, as evidenced in the TV special, The Muppets at Walt Disney World, the song has come to epitomize the ideals and artistic spirit of Henson and his company as much as "When You Wish Upon a Star" represents Walt Disney and his company.
