I am truly obsessed with this song

Pandora ads are getting quite targeted toward me. It's creepy and I don't like it.

When you look this up on Genius the story is actually quite sad.

I remember being jealous of the German club, in 9th grade, because they had to learn how to sing the German version of Major Tom.

OK . .Wipper Snappers !!! y'all play nice now, you have a Senior Citizen onboard now. . . Please don't cause Pandora to have to tighten up & restrict us all from sharing our APPRECIATION for these Artists & their wares. Personally I just read through the input for the first time, and I think you're all adorable. However . . this is not the place to challenge the genius that some of us are paying hard earned Dead Presidents to enjoy, peacefully. Thank You :)

Great song but I prefer the German version...

Surprisingly difficult MP3 to find in America. I had to resort to a Youtube to MP3 converter. Which I hate doing, but you have to do what you have to do.

I sure would like to listen to this track in German. In my opinion is sounds better. But I couldn't figure out how to make this station prefer German language.

This actually ain't bad, this song. I was reminded more of the Police than David Bowie to be honest.

I remember when Laurie and I always played this song; long live the 80's, new wave, and trance music of today!

The 80's WAS A great time for music, not too bad now either. We have that and now. I know I just turned 60. Check out Agnes Obel.

Love this song! It is my dream to go to space, or die trying. But I'm afraid that when i go, I'll never be happy anywhere else.

This is a great song, but surprisingly hard to find on MP3. I would have loved to drop Peter Schilling (where ever he is) a dollar, but I ended up using a YouTube to Mp3 Converter to get it.
