Starman – New Video! (David Bowie Cover)

We filmed this cover of "Starman" on the Martian looking volcanic island that is Lanzarote during our trip there in January. It was the perfect setting. Every time we left the house it was impossible not to expect a UFO to take off behind one of those outlandish looking volcanoes.

We've always been fascinated with space and the question of what could be "out there", ever since we were little kids. Our dad always used to tell us a made-up ongoing bed-time story over several years. It was about two kids, Johnny and Clarissa, and their intergalactic friends, travelling through the universe, exploring new planets and meeting starmen on wild adventures.

Naturally, that planted a strong curiosity about everything outerspacey and we've loved “Starman” ever since we first heard it and were old enough to understand the English lyrics. It captures our feelings about the vast and mysterious universe spot on.

Needless to say, we loved working on this song!

Please let us know what you think of the new "Starman" video in the comments section on YouTube or right here underneath this post. It's the first time we've done a Bowie cover and we're curious to hear everyone's thoughts.

Lots of love you all and stay groovy,
Mona & Lisa

First time I have heard you singing and loved it. My husband had found your music on u tube. We grew up with the Beatles music and we have now just reached our 70s and found your music fascinating. All of it not just the Beatles. Loved your video in Lanzarote our favourite holiday destination. Take care x

i could talk all day and night and for weeks about that era. i graduated hs in ’68 at 17. When I was in hs, i was in the best School marching band probably in the world, and in a Musical band/group playing for money all over West Texas and south/central New Mexico for years in high school (you could get a drivers license at 14 then in Texas) called “The Endless Trip Ungrateful” ,(65, pic included – ‘68. I could have gone with some people to Woodstock but my parents were too old, and i was afraid to leave… Read more »

Part of the song reminds me of the intro to George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. Coincedence?
