Musical Monday # 99

Musical Monday

I was introduced to Musical Monday by Delores who copied the meme from another site.
I think it’s a fun way to show off some of the music we like and brighten up our Mondays at the same time. 

I’ll be finding my clips on you tube, so will simply credit that site since there are often so many versions of everything and I wouldn’t want to accidentally credit the wrong artist.
Today’s clip is: Peter Schilling

Major Tom
this is the German version, followed by:

the lyrics, in English 

Major Tom.


  1. I'd never heard this before--I love it!!

  2. I don't remember hearing that song but when I saw the "Major Tom", I thought of David Bowie's song "Space Oddity". Ground Control to Major Tom, Ground Control to Major Tom, Take your protein pills and put your helmet on.

  3. New to me - and intriguing. Thank you.

  4. I'll stick with David Bowie, thank you. :)

    This one doesn't do much for me; it doesn't "move" me; but as I said last week we all have our own likes and dislikes.

    I hope that wild weather down your way doesn't affect where you are, River. A good day to remain indoors if that wind misbehaves. Take care.

  5. fishducky; this one is from the TV series The Blacklist.

    Cheryl; I knew a lot of people would think of David Bowie. I think I have Space Oddity further down on my list of songs for here.

    Elephant's child; I really like it.

    Lee; It's a good thing that we all like different things, imagine the dull world we would have otherwise.
    I like this wild weather, it's such a change from melting in the heat. I've always liked storms, just not the damage they can cause.

  6. David Bowie does this song justice. Every time my grand daughter Clara (with the compassionate heart) hears this song, she cries.

  7. Susan Kane; I'll have to listen again to David Bowie's version.

  8. I like Bowie's better but it was interesting to hear a different version.

  9. Andrew; I really must get to you tube and listen to Bowie's version. I was going earlier, but got distracted by a delivery. See tomorrow's post for details.

    Margaret-whiteangel; This version is from The Blacklist, and is the background theme for when the Tom Keen character is going undercover as a German agent. You probably don't watch The Blacklist.

  10. I've been to you tube. David Bowie's Major Tom aka Space Oddity, is an entirely different song. Which is what I thought to begin with.

  11. Great version! Nearly up there with Bowie's but not quite!

  12. .. great clip River.... I like the words.. xxxx
    thanks... hugs .. Barb xxx

  13. Very new to me and somewhat different too. I still don't like the constant drumming in the background although I know you enjoy it.
