TODD RUNDGREN – “LIFE ON MARS?”
Prolific singer, songwriter, and record producer Todd Rundgren throws his hat into the ring with a cover of one of Bowie’s most renowned masterpieces, “Life on Mars?”
“Life on Mars?” is considered one of the greatest song of the 1970s these days, but the Bowie classic might never have come to be if not for Frank Sinatra and Paul Anka. It started in the late ‘60s, after Bowie wrote “Even a Fool Learns to Love” using music from a French song called “Comme d’habitude. That version was never released but Anka soon bought the rights to the French version of the song, eventually resulting in the ubiquitous Sinatra hit “My Way.” Bowie was reportedly annoyed after hearing Sinatra’s version, however, so he responded by writing what he considered to be a parody of "My Way" — "Life on Mars?"
Rundgren, of course, has penned several big hits of his own, including “Hello It’s Me” and “Can We Still Be Friends.” Additionally, the Philadelphia native has produced or engineered some of the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll, like Cheap Trick, Bad Religion, Badfindger, New York Dolls, Grand Funk Railroad, the Band, and Hall & Oates, as well as one of the best-selling albums ever in Meat Loaf’s “Bat Out of Hell.”
