An Early Clue to the New Direction

Here's an interesting historical artifact -- from 1969, it's the original video for David Bowie's "Space Oddity."



A coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded the first reader to divine the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

Songs that remind you of other songs? In this example, a song that reminds you of Peter Schilling's, Major Tom?

Now, it's off to the Big Apple with my lovely wife, Monica.

Original songs that rocks stars make for rock movies that are about themselves?

That sounds REALLY coherent in my head :D

Could this relate to Gender Chameleons: Androgyny in Rock 'N' Roll?
