Life on Mars? (1973) – David Bowie

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man, look at those cavemen go
It’s the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man, wonder if he’ll ever know
He’s in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

Life on Mars? (1973) – David Bowie

歌曲Life on Mars?,由英國鬼才歌手 David Bowie 在1973 年唱出。歌曲長達3分48秒,類型屬於Glam Rock 華麗搖滾以華麗閃亮亮的服飾作主要風格特徵,填詞作曲由 David Bowie,歌曲被收錄於專輯《Hunky Dory》。作品被指為電影級歌曲及令人振奮,最主要的風格為 Glam Rock 華麗搖滾 更混合 Art Rock 藝術搖滾元素。

至於在歌詞方面,主要講述一位女性到劇院逃離現實,當中運用大量超現實畫面,反映出樂觀主義及荷里活的影響。即使歌曲名稱Life on Mars提及到 Mars 「火星」 ,但歌曲其實與火星及太空無關,最主要是映射當時美國和蘇聯的緊張關係,軍備競賽。

不少得,歌曲被《滾石》雜誌列入500首最佳歌曲之一。在1973年,英國單曲排行榜十三週排行第3位。在2016年(即David Bowie離世當年),歐美各地音樂排行榜都有該歌曲擠進榜中。

歌詞方面

填詞作曲由 David Bowie

It’s a God-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling, “No”
And her daddy has told her to go

But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she’s hooked to the silver screen

But the film is a saddening bore
For she’s lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man, look at those cavemen go
It’s the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man, wonder if he’ll ever know
He’s in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It’s on America’s tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
‘Cause Lennon’s on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
‘Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It’s about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man, look at those cavemen go
It’s the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man, wonder if he’ll ever know
He’s in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?
