David Bowie – Ashes To Ashes (Official Video)
Written by megarock on August 23, 2021
August 23, 1980: David Bowie was at #1 on the UK singles chart with “Ashes To Ashes”. It was his second single to top the UK charts. While it would not make the Hot 100 in the US, it would peak at #21 on the Billboard Disco chart.
Taken from Bowie’s “Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)” album, the song continued the story of Major Tom from his 1969 single “Space Oddity”. The video for the song cost £250,000; it was, at the time, the most expensive music video ever made.
