Starman" is a song by David Bowie, recorded on 4 February 1972 and released as a single in April. The song was a late addition to The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, included at the insistence of RCA’s Dennis Katz, who heard a demo and loved the track, believing it would make a great single. It replaced the Chuck Berry cover "Round and Round" on the album.

Starman (оригинал David Bowie). Звёздный человек (перевод VeeWai). Это был мутный космический джайв. There's a starman waiting in the sky, В небе ждёт звёздный человек, He'd like to come and meet us, Он бы хотел прийти и познакомиться с нами, But he thinks he'll blow our minds, Но он думает, что снёсёт нам крыши. There's a starman waiting in the sky, В небе ждёт звёздный человек, He's toid us not to blow it
Starman is David Bowie’s Christmas carol. It offers a promise of deliverance, that the human race has been redeemed by greater powers, with a chorus built for a crowd to sing it. It’s the song that finally broke Bowie, whose performance of it on a July 1972 Top of the Pops made him a nationwide, and soon worldwide, pop star.
The best David Bowie collaborations find the legendary artist mixing his unique vision with other like-minded musicians. Here are 12 essential examples. Bowie had produced The Stooges’ third album, but Iggy Pop’s debut solo outing, The Idiot, was a more collaborative effort. Marc Bolan: ‘Standing Next To You’ (1977).
When David Bowie appeared on Top of the Pops on 6 July 1972 performing Starman, did he really point at the camera on the line I had to phone someone so I picked on you-hoo-oo ? He did. In the glory days of Top of the Pops you couldn’t watch things again. People had been tipping Bowie for much of the previous year. The New York Times called him the most intellectually brilliant man yet to choose the long-playing album as his medium of expression. In truth, Bowie was like everybody else, just trying to get a hit. The last time he’d been on Top of the Pops was playing piano behind Peter Noone on the latter’s hit version of his own Oh! You Pretty Things.
