I always loved this song, it's a kind of an old companion. But I never knew the meaning of its words. I always thought that this song was about some kind of hidden loss... Until now.
"I was visiting my mother in England in early 1977...
I was staying at the Midland Hotel in Manchester where, in 1960, my friend Allan Clarke and I met the Everly Brothers.
It was a typical Cold, rainy day in the North of England and I was standing on the hotel steps watching the people come and go about their daily business.
I began to think about how their lives were, what difficulties they were facing.... how miserable some of them looked battling the weather...
I used to be one of them...some of them could be me as a younger man... I began to realize, once again, how lucky I have been in my life...
Looking at all the people made me both elated and sad...
Elated because I had made the decision earlier in my life to become a musician and had 'escaped' and sad because a lot of my friends were still there battling the elements...
And I started the song on the steps of the hotel... "Cold Rain" was the result..."

Yes, "Starman" was published on April 14, but it's a song I would never post. Because I heard it trillions of times and I hadn't play any on purpose. My excuses presented, please enjoy Ziggy hymself and his Spiders from Mars, with the recommendation printed 40 years ago on the album's rear cover: "TO BE PLAYED AT MAXIMUM VOLUME".

Bairro Alto is an old district in a high zone of Lisbon. It was a modest and bohemian place and now it's a huge nightlife area.
Somehow, Thievery Corporation tried to lend to this music an environment of fado and instead of Bairro Alto, they mamed it "barrio" in a spanish way...
This neighborhood, itself, is behind the taking of this Bica Funicular's image.
