I was already a Bowie fan when a co-worker of mine played “Major Tom (Coming Home)” while we were working. Very cool song! Clever way to do a sequel song of another artist, I think. My colleague was kind enough to burn the album The Different Story (World of Lust and Crime) from which the song originates. Pretty good, but this is definately the stand-out track. While I play ‘Major’ every once in a while, the album as a whole mainly collects dust. But hey- one great song is accomplishment enough for me.
For ballance and true lineage, here’s also the music video of Bowie’s “Space Oddity”.
