2 tributes to Bowie

Charles emails me this link to a cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" (a.k.a., the "Ground Control to Major Tom" song) by Commander Chris Hadfield (O, Canada!).

I like Bowie's "Heroes," but I've especially enjoyed Baz Luhrmann's joyfully bombastic quasi-cover of it that appears as part of the "Elephant Love Medley" in "Moulin Rouge." See here (the "Heroes" segment starts almost exactly at the 2:00 mark).
