The Endless Note

Life On Mars US

Finally managed to get around to watching the final episode of Life On Mars US last night.

The original UK series was gripping viewing and the US version obviously did not benefit from the surprise element that the original series had.

The principles of the show were the same with at least similar characteristics built into the roles in the show.

The ending however was even further off the wall than the UK original.

Here is the closing song.

“Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” – Elton John

And now I know
Spanish harlem are not just pretty words to say
I thought I knew
But now I know that rose trees never grow in new york city

Until youve seen this trash can dream come true
You stand at the edge while people run you through
And I thank the lord there’s people out there like you
I thank the lord there’s people out there like you

While mona lisas and mad hatters
Sons of bankers, sons of lawyers
Turn around and say good morning to the night
For unless they see the sky
But they can’t and that is why
They know not if it’s dark outside or light

This broadways got
Its got a lot of songs to sing
If I knew the tunes I might join in
Ill go my way alone
Grow my own, my own seeds shall be sown in new york city

Subways no way for a good man to go down
Rich man can ride and the hobo he can drown
And I thank the lord for the people I have found
I thank the lord for the people I have found
