This song was written in 1972 by David Bowie for his album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. The album is very loosely a concept album, where Bowie’s alter ego Ziggy Stardust brings messages from extra-terrestrial beings. Starman brings a message of hope to the youth of Planet Earth.
