ENGLISH SONG: DAVID BOWIE- SPACE ODDITY

David Bowie, cuyo verdadero nombre es David Robert Jones, nació el 8 de enero de 1947 en Brixton, Inglaterra. A los trece años aprendió a tocar el saxofón y comenzó a tocar en pequeños grupos de rock, influenciado por el jazz. Su carrera se ha caracterizado por las transformaciones y la experimentación, por sus cambios de estilo y de look y por utilizar cualquier medio que tuviera a su alcance para desarrollar su actividad creativa: desde la música hasta el teatro, el cine o la pintura
Primeros éxitos
Su primer gran éxito llegó en 1969 con una canción de folk pop orquestado en la que narra la historia de un astronauta perdido en el espacio llamado Major Tom y a la que tituló Space Oddity en honor a la película 2001: A Space Odyssey (2001: Odisea del Espacio). Este tema abriría y daría nombre a su segundo L.P.(long play), en el que se aproximaba a la música psicodélica, corriente dominante en ese momento. Fue su primer disco producido por Tony Visconti y también contó con la participación de Rick Wakeman, teclista del grupo Yes.
SPACE ODDITY - LYRIC
Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills
and put your helmet on
Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God's love be with you
(spoken) Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, 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."
