Song of the day: Peter Schilling- Major Tom (The Major Tom Story)

Hi there,

Today a whole story!

Firstly, you might remember that one record made by David Bowie. A very good record, and it was called Space Oddity. In this song, you hear the story of Major Tom, who is going into space with a rocket, and everything seems to go fine, but then there is no contact anymore between earth and Major Tom. Nobody knows what happened to Major Tom, but probably he died.

However, we actually don’t know who Major Tom really was. In another record of David Bowie, Ashes to Ashes, Major Tom is no longer an austronaut, but he is a junkie.

But there was more: Peter Schilling gave us more information in his record Major Tom. It’s the same story as in David Bowie’s Space Oddity, but at least we hear a final message. And coming back to the song of the day, Major Tom (the German version) is the song of the day, and his message is for you to find out!

Tomorrow another record as song of the day!
