Peter Schilling - Major Tom

I kept hearing this song on a Lincoln MKZ car commercial and could never figure out what the original track was. Finally decided to look it up and remembered that this was always a favourite 80's track of mine. Its one of those songs that has an alright verse but an amazing chorus, typical of a lot of tunes back then. Anyway, here's the original video of Peter Schillings rendition and a cover by a band called Shiny Toy Guns which I actually quite enjoy.

  1. Peter Schilling - "Ve should be astronaughts in a capsUal for this video!! Dat would really verk!"

    Manager - "Sorry, you are a one hit wonder and really have only written one good chorus in your career. You are going to have to stack a bunch of cars up and pretent you are in a capsUal."

    Peter Schilling - "Very good. Ve must have old men drinking svile and reading newspapers in front of fire balls."

    Manager - "Done. Won't be real fire, but we can work with it. You will also need rollerskate waitresses serving drinks in some smoke. Very relevant"
