When was David Bowie’s ‘Lady Stardust’ released?
‘Lady Stardust‘ first came out in 1972 as one of the songs on the late British singer songwriter’s fifth studio album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.
With lyrics like:
People stared at the makeup on his face
Laughed at his long black hair, his animal grace
The boy in the bright blue jeans jumped up on the stage
Lady Stardust sang his songsof darkness and disgrace
the track was reportedly written about English glam rock singer Marc Bolan, with Bowie originally naming the song ‘He Was Alright (A Song for Marc)‘.
The mellow glam rock track has been since appeared in several TV series, with its latest appearance on Invasion.
