Space Oddity Chords & Lyrics

David Bowie was a musical pioneer who changed the way we experience music. He constantly reinvented himself and gave us unforgettable albums like Space Oddity, Hunky Dory, and many more. One of his last gifts to us was Blackstar, released on his 69th birthday. Just two days later, on January 10, 2016, Bowie passed away. His music, style, and creativity continue to inspire artists worldwide. In 2022, we celebrate what would have been his 75th birthday with special releases, including the Brilliant Adventure box set, the never-before-heard Toy, and commemorating the 50th anniversary of Ziggy Stardust. Join us in honoring this legendary artist.
