William Shatner’s New Concept Album of Space Jams

I like William Shatner and David Bowie for two very different reasons. So it is with mixed emotions that I bring you word of Shatner’s rendition of Bowie’s “A Space Oddity” on a new concept album called Seeking Major Tom.

Part of me is crying with joy. The other part is just crying.

Other songs on the album (available on Tuesday, digitally and on vinyl!) include Thomas Dolby’s “She Blinded Me With Science” and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

Yeah, I think I’m crying. but in a good way. I think.

  1. I dunno; Has Been was pretty good, mostly because of Ben Folds. Sounds like this might harken back to the dark days of his ’70s version of “Rocket Man.” I like all of the effort to work “Bohemian Rhapsody” into the theme. Does not work.

  2. I’m quite fond of Shatner’s version of “Common People” myself.
