OK - I'll get this one over quickly without prolonging the agony for you guys that want to rush out and buy the Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars - The Motion Picture, 30th anniversary special edition DVD and double CD, and indeed the numbered red vinyl soundtrack!

We asked you "From which song in the Ziggy Stardust Motion Picture is the silhouette of Ziggy in the image above taken from?"

Well, this certainly seemed to fox a fair few of you. In fact, almost half of you answered incorrectly.
