    Its hard to believe that this song was released on July 11, 1969 - an incredible 50 years ago today.




    Written and recorded by David Bowie. It was first released as a 7-inch single and it was also the opening track of his second studio album, 'David Bowie'




    Check ignition and may God's love be with you
    David Bowie :)

    Unfortunately the video wouldn't play back for me so I watched it on You Tube.

    Wow! its a great video :10:

    As I was watching and listening, it occurred to me just what a timeless song it is. If it had been released today for the very first time, I think it would still work, it still sounds current.

    I always feel like it would fit into any timeframe that I was listening to it. Now I want an extended version :pray:

    Do you think we should start a Bowie appreciation thread?
