"Stranded" is the third album by art rock band Roxy Music, and was released late 1973, reaching number one on the UK album charts. The cover features Ferry's girlfriend and 1973's Playmate of the Year, Marilyn Cole. It was the first Roxy Music album on which Bryan Ferry was not the sole songwriter, because Andy Mackay and guitarist Phil Manzanera also contributed to the album. It was also the first without Brian Eno, who had left the group.

The track "Street Life" was released as a single and reached number 9 on the UK charts.

Covers

Bassist John Taylor, during his solo period after leaving Duran Duran in 1997, organized a Roxy Music tribute album called "Dream Home Heartaches: Remaking/Remodeling Roxy Music" (released 1999). On it, Mackay's "A Song for Europe" was covered by Dave Gahan, and "Street Life" was performed by Phantom 5 (aka Gerry Laffy and Simon Laffy).
