Space Oddity by David Bowie lyrics about space travel

Space Oddity wins the contest for its fine originality and also good timeliness – the song was released just five days before Apollo 11 launched Neil Armstrong to the Moon. Bowie is in great lyrical form on the song, both telling the story of a stranded astronaut but also adding in some great social commentary along the way – “the papers want to know whose shirts you wear”

Beautiful song with wonderful lyrics to help us understand our reality  with the Galaxy and Outerspace.

Thank You,
