Space Oddity


There’s not much more to be said about David Bowie and “Space Oddity” that hasn’t been said already. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy seeing the original 1969 video to the smash hit. It’s amazing to look at it, in all its vintage glory, and then compare that to modern music videos. It is remarkable how far the genre of music videos has come.

This video also provides a great insight into the creative process that goes behind making singles. If this version doesn’t sound familiar to you, it is because the song would later undergo multiple revisions to eventually become the “Space Oddity” that most people know and love today.

For reference, here is the better known 1972 “Space Oddity.”
