floating round my tin can



A revised version of David Bowie's Space Oddity, recorded by Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station.
To be followed, I trust, by covers of "Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed", "Don't Sit Down", "Letter to Hermione", "Cygnet Committee", "Janine", "An Occasional Dream", "Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud", "God Knows I'm Good" and "Memory of a Free Festival". All of which I know by heart.

 ....... sings 
We scanned the skies with rainbow eyes and saw machines of every shape and size
We talked with tall Venusians passing through
And Peter tried to climb aboard but the Captain shook his head
And away they soared
Climbing through
the ivory vibrant cloud
Someone passed some bliss among the crowd
And We walked back to the road, unchained

The Sun Machine is Coming Down, and We're Gonna Have a Party
The Sun Machine is Coming Down, and We're Gonna Have a Party
..... repeat to fade in blatant (even unto the chord progression) Hey Jude rip off.

Anyone who can listen to that without laughing must have a heart of stone.
