22nd July 1973, David Bowie released the single ‘Life On Mars’, which peaked at No.3 on the UK chart. The track which was first released in 1971 on the album Hunky Dory, features guest piano work by Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman. The line “Look at those cavemen go” is a reference to the song “Alley Oop,” a one-off hit in 1960 for American doo-wop band The Hollywood Argyles.
