Review by Matti
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars I feel this single deserves a favourable review, since the only rating so far is two (?!) stars. Why, 'Starman' is simply a lovely Bowie classic! It may be rather naiive, but in a charming way. I guess it's among his best known songs, so no need to get into details. A little minus comes for the "laa la-laa la-laa" part going on and on a bit too long in the end. The song appeared on Bowie's breakthrough album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

'John, I'm Only Dancing' (not on any album originally, if I'm not mistaken) was also made into a promotional video at the time, and it has been featured on several Bowie compilations. A nice average song, not among his best, but nor is it one of his least interesting hits either. 3 stars, rounded down on a prog site.
