Major Tom Lyrics - David Bowie

Review The Song (39)

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God’s love be with you

Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift-off

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare

“This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles
I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much (she knows!)
Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear....

“am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do.

When your down play this song

Inspiring Song and movie 'Life of Walter Mitty' | Reviewer: Shima | 6/19/14

It was a great song when first listen to it. It is so encourage when Walter Mitty in the movie run and hop on to the helicopter. Congratulation to the movie making us inspired in life.

Perfect song for Walter Mitty | Reviewer: Clarence | 6/3/14

Wow, what a perfect song choice for that scene of the movie. That scene is absolutely perfect !! From him being afraid to ride the helicopter; to the girl of his dreams singing him the song to encourage him; and right as the line hits "God's love be with you", and her facial expression telling him "It's time." Then Ben Stiller's facial expression to commit and do it !!

Then Ben Stiller's facial expression after successfully taking the leap of faith the song is perfectly timed to start the chorus. Ben Stiller's facial expression after the successful leap is absolutely great !

I was able to to feel Walter Mitty's transformation from before the jump to after the jump ! He did it ! And the song perfectly relays the message.

Absolutely perfect ! everything about that scene is perfect !!! Great job Ben Stiller !!

Inspiring !

Took a while to get into the Walter Mitty film, but now it is one of my all time favorites. Helped by hearing my all time favorite song by David Bowie - Major Tom. What more could I ask for?

Walter Mitty | Reviewer: MyEyesAreBlur | 1/17/14

Ground control to Major Tom, in this song sound sad but in the movie sure it sounds mean... I'm glad Ben Stiller made the movie
it was all worth it -life inspiring. .. n this song is truly shows courage we all need.

After the film | Reviewer: Basia | 1/17/14

In Poland it was the first week they are showing "The Secret life..." Music is still in my ears and pictures in my mind. I have been in my work for 16 years- maybe it is the time to go to Afganistan.

Major Tom | Reviewer: Bebop | 1/10/14

I just saw the movie "Secret Life of Walter Mitty". The mean characters compare him to Major Tom, calling him a ditz even though both Major Tom and Walter Mitty were courageous... I just wanted to see the lyrics.

Just Now Learning of this Great Song!! | Reviewer: William Watson | 1/8/14

I was born in 1972, and I mostly grew up listening to many soul artist, disco, funk, etc., and I never really ventured into Rock and Roll music and artist such as David Bowie. Well...I just finished seeing:
"The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" (starring Ben Stiller)....And this song:
'Space Oddity'/'Major Tom' was played in one of the scenes. I fell in love with it instantly!! and downloaded it to my music collection immediately!!!! ;-) I must leave my "safety zone"of R&B/Soul more often!!...I catch a good one every now and then from some Hip hop samples( sorry to say)....but i will do more exploration in 2014....!! :-)
"THIS IS Major Will to Ground Control.." :-)

Apollo moon pics and stars? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/7/14

Why no stars in the Apollo Moon Landing photos? It's because of contrast, range of field, and resolution, or lack thereof. Those of us who remember trying to master photography with plastic film and a 35mm lens know what it's like, focusing close, losing the distance, or focusing on the horizon and losing focus of near objects. The contrast is tremendous between the bright white space suits, the glare of the sun on moon-soil, and the subtle points of light of stars. No matter how bright, the contrast drowned them out. And lastly resolution. In the 1960's and '70's even the best 35mm film had limited resolution. Look at those old photos again. Try to see individual grains of moon-soil. The soil looks fuzzy because the limited resolution of the film could not "resolve" or make visual something that small. The stars had an apparent size of a grain of sand. Again, no matter how bright the stars were, their apparent diameter (size) was too small for a 35mm lens to bring them to resolution while focusing on those beautiful images of photographer-in-the-face-guard reflections!

Also, also... If they (The Man) had WANTED to fool us... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/7/14

If the moon landing had not been real, and someone had wanted to TRICK us into believing, they would have PUT stars in the photos. The fact there are no stars speaks to the reality of resolution, contrast, and field of range. Stars would have been a dead give away to fraud! Would the non-believers be happier if, in the background we could see the Gemini twins drinking from the Big Dipper, or Leo biting the head off Orion?

I don't agree with Tamara Jones | Reviewer: Zimonn | 7/9/13

...the end of Space Oddity is not sad at all. Simply he is floating. You make effort in your life to give it a direction but then things happen that scramble your plans. And sometimes you are happy they happened.

This just happened to me this saturday. I met a girl and things happened... I never wanted that to meet anybody, and then I didn't want her to go. But I could not control any of these two events. I am just floating. And you know what? I am happy: once in my life I cannot control the situation, I am just float.

Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare! | Reviewer: Amanda | 6/25/13

Bowie Stardust used to be a genius. His lyrics used to tell us beautiful stories. Space Oddity is a classic. But now... Can you hear me, Major Tom? I've born on the 80's but I miss the 60's and early 70's.
