I just was listening to this song tonight. It is a cool song. The lyrics are very strange. I might have posted them...but it is a really long song. I didn't want to get the flack back for wasting more space.

Does anyone else like the song??

Devolution here,

This song was an answer back to Space Oddity by David Bowie. Something that not a lot of people know. A good song. I like it, but it is very odd.

WE are DEVO

I love this song, I think I actually have the video too buried on some comp. VHS. I even bought the Peter Schilling album this was on, even though I believe there wasn't anything as catchy as Major Tom. And Devo, I do remember hearing about the Space Oddity connection. In fact I think there are some other songs that had Major Tom in them like Ashes to Ashes. Maybe a future songwriter in 2005 will make a song in response to Coming Home...Major Tom.

Yeah, Peter Schiiling said he couldnt bare the thought of Major Tom being stuck in space for all eternity. Hahaha!
I loved that song and still do......
but, no, cant think of any other Peter Schilling songs. In fact, I use Peter Schilling to "stump" people in bar bets all the time: "Who sings Major Tom Coming Home?" No one ever knows!
I remember I was in a bar one night and it came on the jukebox and I said "I love this song."
Well, whoever played it loved it too. They played it, like, six times in a row!

"Major Tom" is a great song. I have the 45 rpm single, and the B-side is the same song sung in German! [Cool]
