“Ashes to Ashes” is a single by David Bowie, released in 1980. It made #1 in the UK and was the first cut from the Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) album, also a #1 hit.

The lyrics revisit Bowie’s Major Tom character from “Space Oddity”, which he referenced once again in 1995 with “Hallo Spaceboy”.
