Bowie left Earth as a happily married presumably monogamous Major Tom and returned to exact his promiscuous bisexual revenge as Ziggy Stardust.
This is Major Tom to Ground Control I'm stepping through the door...and I'm floating in the most of particular ways
Play this at my funeral, When I die I will be like Major Tom shooting up to space
Never been a Howie fan but this. song ain't half bad. this was the start not bad


Haha. This is the song they were singing on the plane in the movie Mr. Deeds. I fell in love with David Bowie when he played the Goblin King in Labyrinth but I never actually listened to his music until today.
David Bowie left Earth as Major Tom and returned as Ziggy Stardust and his mullet from Mars. Why? We can't all run from our problems, David.
I can't believe he was only 22 when he wrote this song and just 25 when he wrote the Ziggy Stardust album. Still a quintessenti a l masterpiece. David is amazing. He is extremely intelligent as well as remarkably well read.

Such a sad song
Great song
god damn this song is sad
Listening to this song with only one headphone on makes it sound so different. Love me some Goblin King ;)
I always get chills at "can you hear me major tom?"
FRIGGIN SECOND SADDEST SONG EVER I DON'T KNOW WHY IT ALWAYS MAKES ME CRY.
Follow me if you want and I'll happily follow you right back :)
Best song ever
Always wonder if astronauts have listened to this out there in space along w Dark Side. Almost asking for trouble but spooky to contemplate.
So many memories and emotions are connected to this song... why?

ground control you duck faces better get me back to earth or I will and when I do I will ziggy stardust your ads off
This always make me feel like crying for some reason
I believe this song is his interpretati o n of coming into fame. Maybe? And I went from Major Tom to Paper Roses...than k s Pandy.?
Chris Hadfield's is a must see.... beautiful
This song also reminds me of the very brave men who rode a rocket topped with a tin can into the void.
Commander Chris Hadfield in space? Singing Space Oddity? Awesome http://www.y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v = K a O C 9 d a n x N o & f e a t u r e = y o u t u b e _ g d a t a _ p l a y e r
Great song, I went to a Holloween party in a Major Tom costume. It was great, everybody knew who he was.
Don't forget your helmets, too! :D
Whatever you do, TAKE YOUR DAMN PROTEIN PILLS!!!!!!! ! ! ! !

I agree w/Terri. David Jones at his finest.
one of the best songs ever written...pe r i o d
Rick Wakeman on Keyboards ,and I've heard it's Jimi Page on guitars also.
I love his music!!

Great classic no matter what one thought of David Bowie. This song was loved by most everyone and launched him to super stardom.
no comments? this is a dubiously delisioso tune
