Free Music MP3 – Major Tom Saves The Earth

Updated: Link below was broken, updated, but WordPress is not updating. Here’s the download.

There are several songs I like about a character named Major Tom, the first was by David Bowie and then the one by Peter Schilling, called Major Tom Returns.

[Major Tom Returns by Schilling] is …  a follow-up to David Bowie’s 1969 song “Space Oddity,” and continues the story of Major Tom, an astronaut who cuts off communication with Earth and floats into space.  …

Bowie released his own sequel to “Space Oddity” in 1980 called “Ashes To Ashes,” where Major Tom reestablishes communication with Earth.  – songfacts

My song “Home to You” is another adventure of Major Tom.

It is the year 3066. The Major has survived in top health as part of a human regeneration experiment.  As the most experienced person for the job, he is sent in an experimental ship to divert a solar flare which is about to destroy the earth. While on the mission, he is virtually projected at the same time so he is with his wife in the underground bunker waiting for the end. He saves the earth, but there is a problem and he gets thrown back in time to an earth with dinosaurs.

Another weird reason I wanted to write this song is that David Bowie and I share the same birthday with Elvis (Jan 8th).

If anyone can reach David Bowie, I’d love to thank him for the inspiration have him hear the song. I couldn’t find his email address. Perhaps one of you who is already a premium member of his site could pass on a link to this blog entry.

  2. Very good! reminds me alot of skeleton key off of ipecac records. You have a knack of recording your own style very good, but the feeling im getting from this recording is still in your other recordings of a americana twist in north america not in space. Maybe put a spacier more slow sound to it and time it out like it would be in space. slow it down. and just play slow acoustic folk for the last part. But thats just my opinion, the version you recorded is so tight and so good but if you wanna make it a tribute to bowie’s major tom you gotta slow it down. peace out!

    1. Thanks much, Love the ideas. I deeply appreciate songwriting feedback. I checked out skeleton key. I liked “Sawdust” and “Barker of the Dupes”. 2011 is a year of reworking my old songs. I’m doing a lot of listening to other songwriters I admire. I purchased CAKE‘s latest, Showroom of Compassion, for my iPhone. Enjoying it greatly.
