Space Oddity - lazy online busking part 3

So friends,

Part 3 of my lazy online busking blogs is the mindblowingly amazing song 'Space Oddity' by David Bowie. This is one of the hardest songs to play on the streets, mainly because it has a few different sections which range from big and punchy to small and floaty, which makes for great songwriting, but doesn't always gel so well with people passing a busker who suddenly decides to shout about Major Tom in their faces.

I always find a handful of people really appreciate this song on the streets, if only for the nod to the legend that is David Bowie. I also love the fact it's a space song, as there aren't enough songs about space.

This isn't a tune you will find many buskers doing, which is a shame given what a brilliant song it is. We need more Bowie on the streets, more I tell you!

Peace and infinite love

Mr Jackson
