CHRIS HADFIELD SINGS SPACE ODDITY IN SPACE!

“Hallo Spaceboy...”

Commander Chris Hadfield, currently on board the International Space Station, has just tweeted his version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity.

Here’s what his Tweet said:

+ - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + -

A revised version of David Bowie's Space Oddity, recorded by Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station.
With thanks to Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran, Andrew Tidby and Evan Hadfield for all their hard work.

+ - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + -

It’s possibly the most poignant version of the song ever created and you may recognise the name of one of those involved in its creation.

We’re talking about Chris's fellow Canadian, the lovely Emm Gryner, who was a part of the Bowie live band in 1999/2000. Here’s what she said on her blog (May 12, 2013: Space Oddity in Space | EMMBASSY) regarding her involvement:

“The task was in front of me. I came up with a piano part. i then enlisted my friend, producer and fellow Canadian Joe Corcoran to take my piano idea and Chris' vocal and blow it up into a fully produced song. Drums! mellotrons! fuzz bass! We also incorporated into the track ambient space station noises which Chris had put on his Soundcloud. I was mostly blown away by how pure and earnest Chris' singing is on this track. Like weightlessness and his voice agreed to agree.
And voila! And astronaut sings Space Oddity in space! I was so honoured to be asked to be a part of this. You wouldn't get too many chances to make a recording like this and not only that, to make music with someone who - through his vibrant communications with kids in schools to his breathtaking photos to his always patient and good-humoured demeanour - has done more for science and space than anyone else this generation. Planet earth IS blue, and there's nothing left for Chris Hadfield to do. Right. Safe travels home Commander! ”

You can view the breathtaking video and hear Chris's beautiful rendition here on YouTube: Space Oddity - YouTube

I imagine he would end up in a prominent PR position with NASA/CSA where he can continue to act as a liaison between us regular folk and the rocket scientists conducting missions/experiments. He has a knack for it so would make an ideal fit.

Then again, with his credentials there's no telling where he might end up.

At the pub. They just turned off music & cranked up @Cmdr_Hadfield news. Random guy near me turned to friend, said "This guy is incredible"

did a bit of reading on Chris Hadfield today. Man, that guy has an amazing bio. He's a crazy good pilot, going to top gun and winning the trophy that Tom Cruise couldn't.

Quote:
Hadfield's distinguished career as a pilot began with 3 years flying CF-18s with Canadian Forces 425 Squadron in Québec. In 1985, he was the first CF-18 pilot to intercept a Soviet "Bear" aircraft in Canadian airspace. He next attended the US Air Force's test pilot ("top gun") school in California, where he was honoured as the best graduate of 1988. The following year, he became a Canadian exchange officer at the US Naval Air Test Center in Patuxent River, Maryland - a famous breeding ground for US astronauts. His highly risky work pushing high-performance aircraft out of control and finding ways to recover them earned him the US Navy's test pilot of the year award in 1991.

So I think I'll just scribble in "Commander Chris Hadfield" on tomorrow's ballot.
He's back and looking for work right?

So @Cmdr_Hadfield's Bowie cover has had a million hits in about 3 hours. It's now at nearly 5 million views.
