As we previously mentioned, the biggest hit single taken from Aladdin Sane was The Jean Genie which peaked at #2 on the UK singles chart in January 1973.
Mick Rock filmed and directed the rousing accompanying promo video for the track in San Francisco in October 1972.
Intercut with live footage from the Winterland Audiorium and scenes of DB with a cavorting Cyrinda Foxe outside the aptly named Mars Hotel, the film also featured footage of Bowie miming to the track in a hired studio with The Spiders From Mars.
