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.”
