Ashes to Ashes Lyrics - David Bowie

Review The Song (4)



Do you remember a guy that's been
In such an early song
I've heard a rumour from Ground Control
Oh no, don't say it's true

They got a message from the Action Man
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too
I've loved all I've needed love
Sordid details following"

The shrieking of nothing is killing
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I
Ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
But I'm hoping to kick but the planet is glowing

Ashes to ash and fun to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven, his high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again I tell myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wings are following me
Oh no, not again
I'm stuck with a valuable friend
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too"
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I've never done good things
I've never done bad things
I never did anything out of the blue, woh-o-oh
Want an axe to break the ice
Wanna come down right now

Ashes to ashes, fun to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven, his high
Hitting an all-time low

My mother said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom
My mother said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom
My mother said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom
My mother said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

the essence of David Bowie | Reviewer: minehead | 11/22/11

my first Bowie album was Diamond Dogs which I still maintain is by far his best 70's work, but along the way he always delivered songs that blow your mind and Ashes To Ashes is the very essence of David Bowie boiled down to 3 1/2 minutes...the cut & paste lyric style, the funky bass & linear drum style, the ARP200 lead synth on the fade, and the disconcerting synths & backing vocals just NEVER get old, everytime i hear this I feel like it's the first time, that's the mark of a true genius that just channels some universal cosmic musical mind and taps into your soul...he'll always be one of the Top 5 best songwriters and lead vocalists in rock...

Ashes to smashes | Reviewer: Sid sullivan | 11/6/11

I just heard this song in my sisters car. It brought me right back. For some reason, the moment i first saw the video on top of the pops is engrained in my memory. It is a seminal moment in my life, and when i hear the song again the nostalgia, though beautiful, is almost unbearable. I was on the cusp of adulthood, and my musical tastes were about to become more sophisticated, and this song served as a sort of catylist. Its an incredible composition, and the lyrics just blew my mind. The fade out particulary caught my attention then. Its almost like a song that will never end, and i will never stop loving it. David bowie is a supreme talent, and he wrote the sound track to my adolescense, i will always be grateful to him for that.



We Know Major Tom's A Junkie....... | Reviewer: Major Tom | 9/10/07

I really, really love Ashes To Ashes!! It's sooo great, it's just perfect... -Such personal, but public too.... Bowie is the BEST. His writing is as great as God...He IS God. He writes his songs in such a mysterious way.... I love him. All his songs are great, Ashes to Ashes / Space Oddity / Life On Mars? / -EVERY song... is his best song. Go Bowie!
