Reply To: “Ground Control to Major Tom”Back to Forum
Saw a clip on the news tonight , loved the floating guitar !!! However Major Tom was a fictional astronaut created by David Bowie and has nothing to do with Ziggy Stardust who was fictional rock star created by Bowie 3 years later , I’m a Bowie fan , loved his music from the 80s when he did Ashes to Ashes which also referred to Major Tom in the lyrics .
In my opinion I like Ziggy era the best but Space Oddity is a great song and strangely reached No1 in 1975 despite being played and released during the moon landing in 1969 .
