David Bowie – Hallo Spaceboy (CD Single)

The one with the Pet Shop Boys from 1995. Guiltily this one of my favourite Bowie tracks it just seems to work with the grandiose synths, the 7″ remix far superior to the album version which is grittier and more industrial sounding as Bowie described at the time “like Jim Morrison meets industrial” This smoother version has Tennant alluding to “Space Oddity” on backing vocals.

With a couple of live B-sides and a more genuine attempt to be industrial with “Hearts Filthy Lesson” (which appeared in the film Se7en) This was a record company trying to desperately give fans memories of past glories, which were rapidly diminishing through Bowie’s output in the 90’s.
