Starman was originally released by David Bowie on his 1972 album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and as a single. It is about someone who hears a message on the radio from a starman who would like to meet people but is worried about our reaction and is sending a positive message that it is all worthwhile. This is a distinct Twins version that is barely recognisable at the start but the chorus is clearly identifiable, and that’s the bit we all know. It has a distinct early ’60s feel with a guitar solo that is highly reminiscent of early Beatles. The video was filmed on the island of Lanzarote, in the Canary Islands, which provides a suitably alien backdrop with its volcanic landscape, contrasting the beautiful singing of Mona and Lisa.
You can follow the MonaLisa Twins on their Official Website, on Facebook, on Twitter, on Instagram, and on their YouTube channel. You can buy their music on iTunes.
