A song often mistakenly known by its opening line, “Ground Control to Major Tom”, “Space Oddity” was David Bowie’s first charting song in the United Kingdom, and is still one of his signature tunes.

Among the famous covers of the song include Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who covered the song from the International Space Station (and was the first music video shot from space):
