This song is pretty awesome
I'm sry but Shiny Toy guns version is definitely better, but tht doesn't mean I don't like this song- I LOVE IT!!!
By original I mean the original English translation - the original version is in German.
This is NOT a cover of David Bowie's Space Oddity (one of you referred to is at Major Tom) - that is a totally DIFFERENT song entirely. The original artist of this song is Peter Schilling and the original title is Major Tom. David Bowie never sang this song!

Lately I've noticed that pandora is playing the oldies station I created however, some of the oldies that are played are not recordings from the original artist. Has anyone else experienced this?
Bowie's "Space Oddity" is different from Peter Schilling's "Major Tom (Coming Home)".

Bowie sang "Here... am I floating round my tin can / Far... above the world / Planet earth is blue, and there's nothing I can do...".

Schilling sang, "Earth below us: drifting, falling / Floating weightless, coming home..."

(I had written more but ran into the 500 character limit and had to remove it so you get this parenthetica l instead.)

I definitely like the Shiny Toy Guns version better

It's great how the only thing mentioned on the artist page is one song.
Anyway, The Shiny Toy Guns' cover of David Bowie's "Major Tom (Coming Home)" is the one on the car commercial. I believe it was Toyota, but I'm mostly guessing. STG's version of the song is better than The Contact's and I think it even beats the original.

Wasn't this song on a car commercial? Lincoln or Caddy?
i think both versions have their merits. and besides, there's more to this band than one cover.
Great song.. Shiny Toy Guns is just a different style..more digital.. this seems to have more instrumental s in it.. Both are great versions though!
srry but shiny toy guns blow this out of the water the only good thing is that you can here the lyrics better
Shiny Toy Guns version sucks (but not to troll) theirs(The Contact) could have been better but it's still a good song

beast it is
Some songs should not be covered, and their version of Major Tom is not pretty. The chorus is decent, but that's about it. The only good cover of Major Tom, which has been done by everyone and their brother, is the one done by the Shiny Toy Guns. It gives you chills... that's how good it is imo.
Sounds pretty good.
