David Bowie – Drive-In Saturday (1973)


Aladdin Sane

I have some missing days to catch up on – the weekend it is! David Bowie once described the album Aladdin Sane as “Ziggy in America”. Conceived during a journey through the Arizona desert, ‘Drive-In Saturday’ is typically space-age and full of gibberish. “And try to get it on like once before\When people stared in Jagger’s eyes and scored”. Mott The Hoople turned down the song as a follow up to that other Bowie gift ”All the Young Dudes”. Are they mad?!
