  1. the rise and fall of ziggy stardust and the spiders from mars albümünün dördüncü şarkısı ve albümden yayınlanan ilk single.

    1972 yılında kayıt edilen bu parça albüme büyük bir hit olacağı düşünülerek, başka bir şarkının yerine alınmıştır ve sahiden hit olmuştur da. hatta 1999 yılında q magazine okurları tarafından tüm zamanların en iyi 100 single'i listesine seçilmiştir.

    marslı* filminde ve simpsons'ın bir bölümünde kullanılmıştır.

    sözleri radyoda uzaydan gelen sesi duyan bir gencin hikayesini anlatır;

    didn't know what time it was and the lights were low
    i leaned back on my radio
    some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll 'lotta soul, he said
    then the loud sound did seem to fade
    came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase
    that weren't no d.j. that was hazy cosmic jive
    there's a starman waiting in the sky
    he'd like to come and meet us
    but he thinks he'd blow our minds
    there's a starman waiting in the sky
    he's told us not to blow it
    'cause he knows it's all worthwhile
    he told me
    let the children lose it
    let the children use it
    let all the children boogie

    i had to phone someone so i picked on you
    hey, that's far out so you heard him too
    switch on the tv we may pick him up on channel two
    look out your window i can see his light
    if we can sparkle he may land tonight
    don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright
    there's a starman waiting in the sky
    he'd like to come and meet us
    but he thinks he'd blow our minds
    there's a starman waiting in the sky
    he's told us not to blow it
    'cause he knows it's all worthwhile
    he told me
    let the children lose it
    let the children use it
    let all the children boogie

    starman waiting in the sky
    he'd like to come and meet us
    but he thinks he'd blow our minds
    there's a starman waiting in the sky
    he's told us not to blow it
    'cause he knows it's all worthwhile
    he told me
    let the children lose it
    let the children use it
    let all the children boogie
