Bowie Track Cut From Rugrats Soundtrack

on October 07, 1998

Because of a film re-editing, the Bowie composition "Sky Life" will now no longer appear in the childrens movie, Rugrats. Music co-ordinator Karen Rachtman expressed her feelings thus; 'I have always wanted to work with David Bowie and I finally had my chance. He delivered a song far beyond my wildest dreams and now I can't even use it. The song is beautiful.' The song now reverts back to Bowie. Will we ever get to hear what could have been? Says Bowie: 'Unfortunately, it really doesn't fit in with what I'm doing at the moment. A shame really, as it was quite sweet for what it was.'

He moved effortlessly in the Seventies from stylised rock star with a seemingly cast-iron image as Ziggy Stardust, to actor by playing the Elephant Man on the Broadway stage and later to brilliant businessman who sold his back catalogue of songs for more than 50 million LST to Wall Street investors.

Only last month, evidence of his pre-eminence and reincarnation was seen when he was invited to a private dinner at Chequers by the Prime Minister.

Of his many incarnations during a glittering career, this could be the one David Bowie will prefer to be remembered by. A poll of fellow rock and pop stars and leading music industry figures has named him top music star of the past 30 years, controversially edging ahead of The Beatles who were placed second. Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye and Jimi Hendrix also trailed in Bowie's wake.

The 51 year old former art student from South London has been Major Tom, Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke, among others, since launching his career in the Sixties.
