Is there life on Mars? Of course.

“Life on Mars?” is a song by David Bowie first released in 1971 on the album Hunky Dory and also released as a single. Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph ranked it as #1 in his 100 Greatest Songs of All Time list. He also commented on the song:

“A quite gloriously strange anthem, where the combination of stirring, yearning melody and vivid, poetic imagery manage a trick very particular to the art of the song: to be at once completely impenetrable and yet resonant with personal meaning. You want to raise your voice and sing along, yet Bowie’s abstract cut-up lyrics force you to invest the song with something of yourself just to make sense of the experience. And, like all great songs, it’s got a lovely tune.”

“Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he’ll ever know
He’s in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?”

Sheepie tries to reach Mars, but escape velocity might elude her

This sheepie accepted The Yogi Rock’s invitation to vacation in Mars, perhaps even legal residence. Was she too optimistic in assuming that her graceful jump would allow her to reach escape velocity? We think she was, and that she will be forced to stay on Earth. What’s in her mind? We think we know: “it’s easier in Mars”. Poor she!
