Space Oddity 1969

by Phillip Thurtle

In this video produced by Kenneth Pitts and directed by Malcom J Thomson, David Bowie plays both Ground Control and Major Tom. The imagery from the video accentuates Major Tom's choice to stay in space, rather than return to Earth as the triumphant hero. In it Bowie is seduced by space maidens, the stars perhaps, and ends up in bed with them. The video was eventually shelved until it was released by Polygram in 1984.
