This is the year the rock god put out "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars," which contains the song "Starman," one of the best songs ever made.
"He's told us not to blow it
Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie"
... to be played at maximum volume.
