Aladdin Sane (1973)

Seen as 'Ziggy goes to America', this record continued the apocalyptic vision of the previous album.
The title track itself had 1913-1938-197? in brackets on the track listing, the dates being the years before the last two world wars and the possible date of a future conflict.
Given the pessimistic tone of the album, it's refreshing to see how much fun Bowie and Ronson are having in this clip.
