The original video for David Bowie's Space Oddity from 1969But mostly because any excuse to post a Bowie clip is all good by me.
My mum was the biggest Bowie fan in the 70s and even sporting a cropped
orange hair do, and was known to go out with a gold sun painted on her
forehead in glitter platforms, satin flares and faux fur.
Alas I do not have any photographic evidence nor did she keep any of her
old gear as my granddad had a thing about bonfires! (but she does still
have all her clippings from 70's teen mags, which I plan on stealing when
she's not looking...)
Anyhoo, back to the clip, I remember going with my Dad to buy her a pressie
in woolworths in the early 80s it was a video called Love You Till Tuesday,
which is full of early promo videos from the 60's, where David looks quite
delish with his grown out mod hair and very cool outfits (I think sporting an
Ossie shirt in one?).
I still have that video, and I believe you can get it on DVD too.
