Ziggy Stardust

Hoy toca uno de los clásicos… esta canción es una de las más importantes de la década de los ‘70, y además se encuentra enmarcada dentro de uno de los mejores discos de todos los tiempos (y que en mi opinión es a los ‘70 lo que el Sgt. Pepper’s de los Beatles a los ‘60), aunque gran parte de su fama actual es debida a la version que hace Bauhaus, que en directo es impresionante, y que la ha convertido en uno de los himnos del Rock Gótico y del Afterpunk / Postpunk (y cuyo videoclip os dejo como premio en este enlace ^^).

Canción: Ziggy Stardust. Grupo: David Bowie. Disco: The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (1972). Género: Glam Rock.

Letra:

Ziggy played guitar Jamming good with Weird and Gilly And the spiders from Mars He played it left-hand But made it too far Became the special man Then we were Ziggy’s band

Ziggy really sang Screwed-up eyes and screwed-down hairdo Like some cat from Japan He could lick ‘em by smiling He could leave ‘em to hang Came on so loaded man Well-hung and snow-white tan

So where were the Spiders While the fly tried to break our balls? Just the beer light to guide us So we bitched about his fans And should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time Jiving us that we were voodoo The kids were just crass He was the nazz With God-given ass He took it all too far But boy could he play guitar

Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind Like a leper messiah When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band

Ziggy played guitar.
