Space Oddity is the song that first brought the world's attention to David Bowie in 1969. And after his compelling career that has spanned decades, "Oddity" still captivates as witnessed by Commander Chris Hadfield's recent cover. Hadfield recorded his version aboard the International Space Station in 2013 and the video has become a Youtube sensation with over 17 million views.
Bowie must be smiling thinking that 44 years after it's debut, his initial foray onto the Pop charts is more popular than ever. With that in mind, posted below are some of the best Space Oddity covers and remixes ever. From the chilled out GeoCentricReMix to William Shatner's delightfully campy remake, all are free downloads. Take your protein pills and put your headphones on!
