Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie

Recommended Posts

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars

David Bowie (1972)

This album documents one of the most elaborate self-mythologizing schemes in rock, as Bowie created the glittery, messianic alter ego Ziggy Stardust ("well-hung and snow-white tan"). The bouncy glam-rock Bowie made with guitarist Mick Ronson is an irresistible blend of sexy, campy pop and blues rock, with enduring tracks such as "Hang On to Yourself" and "Suffragette City." The anthem "Ziggy Stardust" was one of rock's earliest, and best, power ballads. "I consider myself responsible for a whole new school of pretensions," Bowie said. "They know who they are. Don't you, Elton? Just kidding. No, I'm not."

Total album sales: Under 500,000

Peak chart position: 75

His best, I think it went downhill from there.

I don't agree. I think he made plenty of excellent tracks after that

the thing I like about David Bowie is that he is always changing, always trying to innovate. Ziggy Stardust may have been his best album, but I would not be one to dismiss him.

Ziggy was a great character. The 70's seemed to produce that mix of theatre and rock that hasn't really happened since. I was never a Bowie fanatic as such ... I only ever bought one album (Hunky Dory)... but he always seemed to produce music appropriate for the time in question. I like the guy.

I'M AFRAID OF AMERICANS

- Album: Earthling

- Lyrics by Bowie Music by Bowie and Brian Eno

Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

Johnny's in America

Low techs at the wheel

Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

Noone needs anyone

They don't even just pretend

Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

Johnny's in America

I'm afraid of Americans

I'm afraid of the world

I'm afraid I can't help it

I'm afraid I can't

I'm afraid of Americans

I'm afraid of the world

I'm afraid I can't help it

I'm afraid I can't

I'm afraid of Americans

Johnny's in America

Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

Johnny wants a brain

Johnny wants to suck on a Coke

Johnny wants a woman

Johnny wants to think of a joke

Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

Johnny's in America

Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

I'm afraid of Americans

I'm afraid of the world

I'm afraid I can't help it

I'm afraid I can't

I'm afraid of Americans

I'm afraid of the world

I'm afraid I can't help it

I'm afraid I can't

I'm afraid of Americans

Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

Johnny's in America

Johnny looks up at the stars

Johnny combs his hair

And Johnny wants pussy and cars

Johnny's in America, Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

Johnny's in America, Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

I'm afraid of Americans

I'm afraid of the world

I'm afraid I can't help it

I'm afraid I can't

I'm afraid of Americans

I'm afraid of the world

I'm afraid I can't help it

I'm afraid I can't

I'm afraid of Americans

God is an American

God is an American

I'm afraid of Americans

I'm afraid of the world

I'm afraid I can't help it

I'm afraid I can't

I'm afraid of Americans

I'm afraid of the world

I'm afraid I can't help it

I'm afraid I can't

Yeah, I'm afraid of Americans

I'm afraid of the words

I'm afraid I can't help it

I'm afraid I can't

I'm afraid of Americans

Johnny's an American

Johnny's an American

Johnny's an American, Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

Johnny's an American, Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

Johnny's an American, Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

Johnny's an American, Ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah ah-ah-ah

I have the Alladin Sane LP in my collection. It has the centerfold on the album cover of him naked as Ziggy spray painted silver from his midsection down....

David Bowie is one of those talents that isnt out to impress, but express......

I wanted so badly to see him this year, but I couldnt find anyone to go with me....

I also happen to find the fact that he has one blue eye and one brown eye very sexy!

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
