My IPOD played "Space Oddity" by David Bowie today. Strange how memories work. Because it brought me back to about 1973 when I was a freshman in high school. One night I was in my room listening to Roanoke Virginia's WSLQ on my clock radio when they played "Space Oddity" followed immediately by "Walk on the Wild Side". First time I had heard either and I was awed. These were the 2 coolest songs EVER! I wasn't the only one because the next day it was a major discussion point with several of my classmates.
They're still pretty cool songs.
