Space Oddity - David Bowie (Cover by Ed Privat)

Often I wonder how listeners react the 1st time they are listening and they can hear the work that goes into these songs. Are they somewhat mystified and taken to another place or simply unable to tell that it is a cover, every layer, every level, the instrument and attention to detail cloaked in subtle creative finishes

I know I take it for granted at times because I'm often not around to witness the magic happen with my own eye but it is unmistakable .


Hello people of earth !!!

This is you musiconaut Ed Privat, live in orbit for a brand new SONG REQUEST !!!! It is "Space Oddity" by David Bowie, and it was requested by @incognitoct few months ago!

So I have been singing and arranging this song in my head for a while, decided to really keep it very close to the original.
I enjoyed every minutes of recording this track , props to Bowie he is da man !!!

David Bowie

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Ground Control to Major Tom (ten, nine, eight, seven, six)
Commencing countdown, engines on (five, four, three)
Check ignition and may God's love be with you (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
