"Oh! You Pretty Things" is a song written by David Bowie in 1971 for the album Hunky Dory. It opens with only piano and Bowie’s vocal, before entering the catchy refrain. The simple piano style is often compared to The Beatles' “Martha My Dear”. Thematically, the song has been seen as reflecting the influence of occultist Aleister Crowley and philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, and heralding “the impending obsolescence of the human race in favour of an alliance between arriving aliens and the youth of the present society”.

The song was first released by Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits, in a single on which Bowie played piano. It became a #12 hit in mid-1971. Noone replaced Bowie’s line “The Earth is a bitch” with “The Earth is a beast”, in a performance that NME editors Roy Carr and Charles Shaar Murray opined to be “one of rock and roll's most outstanding examples of a singer failing to achieve any degree of empathy whatsoever with the mood and content of a lyric

the sound of teenage girls laughing near you when you’re by yourself is literally the most terrifying thing a person can experience
