Space Oddity

Watch Space Oddity

David Bowie wrote a number of songs during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s with a sound that’s just as fresh today as it was at the time. Space Oddity was his first hit and for me, the first track that I consider part of the collection of timeless tracks that are a signature of much of his glam period that is best remembered with The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust. Earlier this month, Flash animation site Newgrounds featured a college project by someone who created a sort of music video set to Space Oddity. The animation is simplistic but effective in translating the story of the song to a modern medium. I have my doubts about anyone clearing the rights with Bowie, so I don’t imagine it will be long before a cease and desist is issued, but it’s definitely worth watching at least one. Be cautioned that some areas of Newgrounds are definitely not family friendly.
