Musical Interlude II

David Bowie's "Oh! You Pretty Things" is yet another song with Sci-Fi credentials (I don't mean for this to become a recurring theme, it just happened that way). Aleister Crowley and Nietzsche have been cited as possible influences, and the "Strangers" might be a reference to Stranger in a Strange Land. This song also makes me think of Wild in the Streets, probably for its combination of futuristic dystopia with youthful rebellion.
