  • Fucking great song
  • Mick Ronson riffs 💚
  • 1947 - ∞
  • First time I listened to this, out of respect for Bowie. I'm in love, what a great song. "There's a starman waiting in the sky He'd like to come and meet us But he thinks he'd blow our minds"
  • RIP, he is a starman now, somewhere in the stars!
  • Heard this song on some contemporary music radio station this morning and wondered what was wrong. Why would a radio station like that play Bowie? Then I checked the news and it made sense. Gosh, I miss you Bowie! Love you forever and ever, you Starman!
  • RIP David - a legend.
  • Goodbye.
  • There's starman waiting in the sky
  • This really is used wonderfully in The Martian
