If I ever wrote my own biography, I would probably steal the title of David Bowie's "Life on Mars" for the title of my biography. I should mention now that I am a huge David Bowie fan; this explains Labyrinth even more. The irony of this was I wasn't aware of "Life on Mars" until I heard the beautiful cover by Anggun. This cover also spurred my love of hearing re-interpretations of a song that can happen through covers. So my offering today is three variations on David Bowie's "Life on Mars" done in the chronologie that I heard them.
Anggun's interpretation, live:
David Bowie's interpretation, in all its 1970's glory:
Seu Jorge's beautiful acoustic Portuguese version, I originally heard it from the movie, "The Life Aquatic of Steve Zissou", by the way this guy has a gorgeous voice:
