“Ziggy Stardust” by David Bowie (1972)
As we all know, Ziggy played guitar…and so did Bowie on this acoustic version of the glam-rock staple. The whole Ziggy tale about an alien rockstar was inspired loosely by the story of Vince Taylor, an early British rock pioneer who suffered a severe nervous breakdown and believed himself to be a cross between a god and an alien.
“Money” by Pink Floyd (1973)
Although it ended up laden with innovative tape loops and guitar effects (not to mention the bizarre 7/8 time signature), Roger Waters originally sang this single cut from the zillion-selling Dark Side Of The Moon as an edgy blues number.
