From Liedzeit
This song alone would make Space Oddity his best album. And to exaggerate slightly, so would every other one.

I am a huge Bowie fan having got into him in the 80's and having to catch his back catalogue. I had Ziggy Live the Motion Picture before I got Space Oddity album, so that was the first time I heard the song. Thought it was beautiful and got a chill as the story unfolded and Ground Control asked "can you hear me Major Tom, can you hear...."
I noted a comment below about Ashes to Ashes being an even better response to this song and I must say I agree, but both are excellent tunes so I won't quibble
