Leo Susana - Life on Mars? ( David Bowie cover) 163/365

Still working on this wonderful David Bowie song. Gotta memorize the lyrics and changes (no pun intended) I actually learnt it in 2010 for a casting call in Madrid for a commercial that was to run during the World Cup. When it came time to actually perform it I just plain went blank ( which sometimes happens to me on stage also). I couldn't remember how it started. I thought I had memorized it. Anyway, ended up performing one of my songs for the camera. In the end I didn't get the gig.  I've never tried to play this song since then but this week found an arrangement I'm comfortable with and decided to base it more on how Seu Jorge plays his Portuguese version. From now on it will be in my acoustic set.
