David Bowie - Space Oddity


Space Oddity

Ground control to Major Tom...
Ground control to Major Tom...
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on.
Ground control to Major Tom...
Commencing countdown, engines on,
check ignition and may God's love be with you.
Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five
four, three, two, one, liftoff.
This is ground control to Major Tom,
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.
Ground control to Major Tom,
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?
Can you ...
Here am I floating round my tin can,
far above the moon.
Planet earth is blue
and there's nothing I can do.

Who's we, what's need, what entries? Hadfield's version is a paraphrastical one, not just a cover, the lyrics are changed. Do you agree with me?

It's ok, a critic's eye is always welcome. I used to like David Bowie a lot, but the astronaut's version really melt my heart.

And also, I've been following cmdr Chris Hadfield on the internet for a few months, he has made some great videos an pictures. If the internet was to disappear, I would only regret LT and Hadfield's stuff from outer space.
Plus, he has the same name (Kris) as the main character in the film/book Solaris Tongue smile

Hey, Lumi, I've read the description of your 23 year-old song and I know there are little chances for me to solve the problem. But was the "doo-doo" part sung or played by instruments. Was it a funny song like Walking on the Sun by Smashing Mouths or a serious song like Alive by Pearl Jam?
