I was listening to Radio 2

Something I rarely do, but on Saturday mornings there's that incomprehensible programme on 5 Live where everyone talks rubbish very fast and a bell keeps ringing. I heard this track and was fascinated by the sound before I realised what it was. Many years since I last heard it but one of the many great Bowie tracks.

Apparently it was his first single after Space Oddity (it bombed). I actually bought Space Oddity as soon as I heard it but this passed me by until I caught it on 'Aladdin Sane'. Marc Bolan played guitar on the original.

David Bowie - The Prettiest Star (Amazon)
