Another isolated vocal track taken from Bowie’s classic 1972 album, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, Starman wasn’t originally meant to be included on the album but was added late in place of a Chuck Berry cover. The rest is certainly history as the song continues to be a classic Bowie song and ended up being his biggest hit since Space Oddity in 1969. What we have below is the isolated vocal track from the song which is without a doubt one of the most exciting Bowie vocals to listen to with a wonderful melody.
Take a listen:

The chorus in Starman is wonderful to listen to WITH music but with everything else taken away the vocals turn the song into a completely different animal. It’s great to hear Bowie’s voice by itself, bare and naked.
