Major Tom was created by Peter Young

Recently discovered this song. If it does not apply to the Pioneer mission, it certainly fits the traditional Zentraedi lifestyle.

(and yes, the artist was inspired by 'Space oddity' by David Bowie)

He's a canadian astronaut who actually played guitar onboard the International Space Station

In answer to yoyr question: record companies more than once assume that English-speaking audiences prefer English versions over the original language. Here is the original version:



Anyone remember Nena, who caught the early eighties' fear for an all-out nucleair war in a song? The original German version, 99 Luftballons, was a hit in the USA (even number one in the charts, I think). Yet the British insisted on an English version, 99 red balloons.

Me, I guess.

Probably says more about me than Bowie. I prefer pop over artistic music.
For example, Genesis with Phil Collins as lead singer over the Peter Gabriel period.
Each to his liking.

Then again, it could be merely a matter of imprinting. Wasn't born in the seventies - eighties and nineties music simply feels natural to me.
