The English music legend records another masterpiece.
Space Oddity is a song written and performed by English musician and composer David Bowie. It was inspired by Stanley Kubrick’sci-fi film _2001: A Space Odyssey,_ and is about a fictional astronaut named Major Tom who journeys into space and beyond.
On June 20, 1969, David Bowie recorded the song at Trident Studios in London, and was released as a single. Space Oddity became so popular that Bowie’s self-titled second album was renamed after it when the album was reissued years after.
Space Oddity won the 1969 Ivor Novello Award, an honor given by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors to musicians and composers for their exemplary work.
