Song of the day: David Bowie- Ziggy Stardust
In 1972, David Bowie released the album The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars. The name, especially the surname Stardust, was inspired by the Legendary Stardust Cowboy. The song is about the person Ziggy Stardust (who was ‘played’ by David Bowie for a year), who is destroyed by his fame. The looks of Ziggy were inspired by two books, namely A Clockwork Orange and Wild Boys. It’s considered as one of the best songs of all time, though it never charted! Enjoy
