"Life on Mars" has become a cult classic with references to it in film and other media, including a TV series sharing the name and using David Bowie's famous song as the intro tune.

A tricky tune to play, but sounds perfect if you can get the notes in time. There are lots of irregularities to look out for - good luck!
