Album: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars
Is it just me, or has the super-rockin’ straight-forward “Suffragette City” never quite fit upon the album where it lives? It’s probably just me, as I’ve always found The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars to be one of those consensus classic albums that has never completely gelled for me.
Maybe because of that opening riff and pounding piano, but “Suffragette City” never really seemed to fit with rest of the songs on Ziggy Stardust. Those songs were bigger and deeper, while “Suffragette City” was a 1950s-style fucksong dressed up on glam-rock clothing.
