I guess this song will always remind me of the goose bumps on my skin during the spectacular launch of SpaceX Falcon Heavy, watching it live on screen in a bar packed with cheering people

With every passing day, and this song, among other Bowie songs, being played every other day , every three days, much like Elton John here at RP,  the classics tend to show a bit of wear. It's a good song, but maybe I'm getting old... Maybe I should turn off the music and meditate...

I admit , I have not viewed the play list for Bowie here at RP and I will..  

 
I would suggest both. We are creatures of variety and mood. Always amazed at how I drift away from an artist, rediscover and then say to myself-where did s/he go? Then I remember, it was me, not them. Just waiting to be rediscovered. Praise patience...

LIVE YOU TUBE

After the spectacular lift off of Space X Falcon Heavy yesterday (with part of this song as some theme music), Starman is at the wheel of the Tesla Roadster now zooming through space:

Yesterday, driving through Santa Monica, stopped at the light and a Tesla pulls up next to me and who should it be? Mr. Wonderful aka Life on Mars Elon Musk.

It was a good day.

Good Dreamin day

Can this song grow more beautiful with each passing year?  A yearning teen age heart felt this music and still yearns freshly 50 years later.   Only more more deeply felt.

 
As a closeted gay man at the time, I share the yearning with Wardleader. "look at those cavemen..." reassuring words when not much else was for me then. But the whole album was stunning-still tear up when I hear Kooks-would have loved to hear my dad say those things. But he did as good as he could.

Yeah, they finally got some headphones and ear-buds up there.  They don't all walk around blasting their boom-boxes anymore.

Bill, would "She's Leaving Home" by The Beatles played before or after this song be RP-vibe-connection worthy?

Anggun's version is much more beautiful - sorry David.

Not my favourite Bowie track so going to have to give this a 9.

9 just didn't do this justice anymore... had to go to 10

No question, one of his very best. The song was just the right choice for the excellent tribute by Lorde at the BRIT awards.

What about Life in California? It's depressingly quiet on my radio here in Stockholm... and worrying, like an old friend who goes missing. Please come back.
