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.
