06.07.72. 7.30pm. BBC1.Top of the Pops. David Bowie performs 'Starman'. Dylan Jones tells the story of a moment in music history that changed a generation. And then there was David Bowie, the uber-freak with the mismatched pupils, the low-tech space face from the planet Sparkle. This was Bowie's third appearance onTOTPbut this was the one that properly resonated with its audience, the one that would go on to cause a seismic shift in the Zeitgeist. This is the performance that turned Bowie into a star, embedding his Ziggy Stardust persona into the nation's consciousness. With a tall, flame-orange cockade quiff (stolen from a Kansai Yamamoto model on the cover of Honey), lavishly applied make-up, white nail polish, and wearing a multi-coloured jump-suit that looked as though it were made from fluorescent fish skin (chosen by Ziggy co-shaper, the designer Freddie Buretti), and carrying a brand spanking new blue acoustic guitar, a bone thin Bowie appeared not so much as a pop singer, but rather as some sort of benevolent alien, a concept helped along by the provocative appearance of his guitarist, the chicken-headed Mick Ronson, with both of them unapologetically sporting knee-length patent leather wrestler's boots (Bowie's were red). 'Most people are scared of colour,' Bowie said later. 'Their lives are built up in shades of grey. It doesn't matter how straight the style is, make it brightly coloured material and everyone starts acting weird.' Suddenly Bowie -- a man called alias -- had the world at his nail-varnished fingertips, and in no time at all he would be the biggest star in the world.

Estratto: Space Oddity una canzone scritta da David Bowie e pubblicata come singolo l'11 luglio del 1969 con Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud come lato B. Uscito a due anni di distanza da Love You Till Tuesday, rappresenta il decimo 45 giri del cantante inglese (considerando anche i primi quattro, pubblicati sotto altri nomi) e il primo estratto dall'album omonimo. Oltre ad essersi piazzata nei primi posti in classifica due volte a distanza di sei anni, Space Oddity detiene il primato come singolo di Bowie pi venduto nel Regno Unito e anche dopo tanti anni rimane sicuramente una delle sue canzoni pi note. La storia di Major Tom e del suo viaggio spaziale (che verranno riprese nel 1980 in un'altra hit di Bowie, Ashes to Ashes) sono entrate ormai nell'antologia pop e il cantante ha sempre lasciato un alone di mistero intorno alla canzone, rifiutandosi di discuterne a fondo. Riguarda l'alienazione, disse una volta, aggiungendo di essere molto portato ad immedesimarsi col protagonista. Nel luglio 2002, in un'intervista con Paul Du Noyer della rivista Mojo, Bowie tornato sul significato del brano affermando che Space Oddity parla solamente del sentirsi soli . Anche la dolorosa fine della sua relazione con Hermione Farthingale fa parte della storia. La lite avvenuta durante la registrazione del video Love You Till Tuesday fu probabilmente "l'ultimo respiro" e...
