Hi!
I know that in the end of Life on mars, there's a phone ringing, but also a voice... Does anyone know what the voice says? :p
And also in Ashes to ashes, he speaks in the background sometimes... I know that in the "I never did good things"-part he just says the same thing as he sings, but in the vers he says something else... what? :p

For your Life on Mars question:
I have a book about all of his songs from 1970-1980.
It says:
As the strings and 2001-style tympani crash to a climax, a studio telephone can be heard ringing and a voice mutters, "Mind the phone."


For Ashes to Ashes:
I got this from some Facebook page

Here



(nothing but the shrieking of nothing)
The shrieking of nothing is killing

(pictures of jap girls in synthesis)
Just pictures of jap girls in synthesis and i

(Ain't got no money)
Aint got no...
(and I ain't got no hair)
...money and I...

(knowing the lasting asthetic????)
...aint got no hair
(songs of breezy air underneath the final garden????)


But Im hoping to kick

(But I'm hoping to kick)
but the planet its glowing-glowing...

(planet is glowing, had to go outside before you????)
glowing-glowing-glowing-glowing-glowing....



I don't know if that's what he's really saying.
But yeah, that's all I could find.
Hope I was helpful!

What about misheard lyrics? Has anyone listened to a Bowie song and thought it was something else? But then you look up the lyrics and you go... =\ awwww....
I thought that he said Rick Of Shame... instead of Ricochet! HAHA how stupid! I suppose its not a word i usually hear, so my mind assumed it was something stupid.. xD I mean, knowing Bowie, his lyrics can be anything.. =3

I swear that for years I believed the chorus on Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide sang “Thunderbolt” (instead of “Wonderful”). It didn’t make much sense, but then again it is a Bowie lyrics so… Wink


“Just turn on with me and you're not alone
Let's turn on with me and you're not alone (thunderbolt)
Gimme your hands cause you're a thunderbolt (thunderbolt)
Gimme your hands cause you're a thunderbolt (thunderbolt)”

Embarassed

In french "Ground control to major Tom" sounds almost EXACTLY like "grand contrôle de mes tétons" which means "Big control of my nipples" xD
