About Space Oddity in Canada

“Space Oddity” is a pivotal song in David Bowie’s career. “Space Oddity” first released on July 11, 1969, by Philips Records as a 7-inch single, and later as the opening track of Bowie’s second studio album. The song was produced by Gus Dudgeon and recorded at Trident Studios in London. Bowie was inspired to write “Space Oddity” after watching the 1968 Stanley Kubrick movie “2001: A Space Odyssey”. It tells the fictional story of Major Tom, an astronaut who cuts off communication with Earth and floats into space. The title “Space Oddity” is a play on the phrase “Space Odyssey”, although it does not appear in the lyrics. This song marked a significant point in Bowie’s career, showcasing a narrative style and musical experimentation that would become a hallmark of his work.

“Space Oddity,” the track in question, unfolds a narrative of an astronaut stranded in the boundless expanse, marking the inception of a saga that later transcended into further renditions by Bowie himself through “Ashes to Ashes” and “Hallo Spaceboy.” The character of Major Tom not only captivated Bowie but also inspired other artists. It echoed in Peter Schilling’s 1983 hit “Major Tom (Coming Home),” K.I.A.’s “Mrs. Major Tom,” and arguably in Elton John’s “Rocket Man.” Interestingly, the latter track was also helmed by Gus Dudgeon, who stepped in for Tony Visconti, Bowie’s regular collaborator who opted out of “Space Oddity.” Visconti perceived it as a novelty tune, a mere promotional gimmick aligning with the Apollo missions, famously remarking, “this is not ‘Space Oddity,’ it’s Ernie The Milkman.”

You’ve really made the grade

And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear

Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control

I’m stepping through the door

And I’m floating in a most peculiar way

And the stars look very different today

For here am I sitting in a tin can

Far above the world

Planet Earth is blue, and there’s nothing I can do

Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles

I’m feeling very still

And I think my spaceship knows which way to go

Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows

Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong Can you hear me Major Tom?

Can you hear me Major Tom? Can you hear me Major Tom?

Planet Earth is blue, and there’s nothing I can do Major Tom?
