Star Lyrics - David Bowie

Review The Song (1)



Tony went to fight in Belfast
Rudi stayed at home to starve
I could make it all worthwhile as a rock & roll star
Bevan tried to change the nation
Sonny wants to turn the world, well he can tell you that he tried

I could make a transformation as a rock & roll star
So inviting - so enticing to play the part
I could play the wild mutation as a rock & roll star
Get it all yeah!
Oh yeah

I could do with the money
I'm so wiped out with things as they are
I'd send my photograph to my honey - and I'd c'mon like a regular superstar

I could fall asleep at night as a rock & roll star
I could fall in love all right as a rock & roll star

I could make a transformation as a rock & roll star

I could fall asleep at night as a rock & roll star
I could fall in love all right as a rock & roll star

Rock'n'roll star
Rock'n'roll star
Bam bom bam
Watch me now

I wrote this song when I designed how the Ziggy Stardust album had to be like, I already had written all of the other songs for the album, though "Star" wasn't written yet.


The album tells the story about my alter-ego Ziggy and actually, the first part of the story is the song "Starman", about Ziggy telling that he'll come to Earth.
The second part of the story is "Hang On To Yourself", about Ziggy telling himself to prepare himself to go to Earth.
The third part is "Moonage Daydream", Ziggy dreaming about how it'll be on Earth, he thinks it's a lovely planet, but when he finally arrives on Earth, in the song "Five Years", and stays on Earth to tell the people there about love, passion and peace, he discovers that Earth's cruel. Ziggy thinks the peple are so cruel that they'll die within 5 years.
Ziggy continues his journey on Earth and tries to make the world better with his music, he sings "Soul Love" for all the people to make them realise that they are doiing the wrong things.
Ziggy discovers drugs, coke and uses it, he starts to create his own world - where peace and love are, because all those things aren't there on Earth, and he needs it.
In "It Ain't Easy" Ziggy explains how difficult life is as a superstar, everybody knows him and wants him, though he isn't happy because the people are destroying Earth with 'theirselves'.
Ziggy gets mad, doesn't any longer know what he's doing and he only wants fame, drugs and sex, because life gets better with that, he thinks.
In "Suffragette City" Ziggy sings to the people about drugs and sex, how good those things are. In "Lady Stardust" Ziggy finally gets rid of his drugs use and tries to stop it, but his "own" world with all the love and sex doesn't stop. It all continues living his own life, and the world that Ziggy had created kills him. He suicides, and the song "Rock 'n Roll Suicide" is about that. "Lady Stardust" is the 'day-after'' thing, the world's a mess without Ziggy, he died and the people destroy the world and die either, "Ziggy Stardust" tells the whole cynic story in one.


And "Star"?
Star needs the place before It Ain't Easy.
Ziggy's a superstar then, rocks the world.



"Jazzlin' and sparkling with the train freaks dancing around with love signs and neighbour marks, was it too blue to stop? I thought it was a circus and I loved it and never had the jam to stop all of it." -Ziggy Stardust (14-06-73).
