    I had a nightmare with a clown in it, recently...

    I was at the DMV playing chess with the girl who played Nancy Drew in the series (she had black). We were partway through middle-game when a clown came up and told us that the DMV was reformatting itself into a play within a play. Then, he stabbed Nancy Drew and cried, "la comedia e finite". I took Nancy into my arms and asked her if she was alright. With blood bubbling from her quivering lips, she said,

    "Mate in three, loser"...

      And, anyone who remembers Pamela Sue Martin brightens mine.

      Dynamite voice, BTW...

      I usually become extra crestfallen regarding "scary clown" stories but yours has afforded me some respite, albeit fleeting, from my typical melancholy. Horrifically hilarious. And any reference to Pamela Sue Martin brightens my day. ❤️

    Besides the absolutely beautiful & passionate piano cover that Mr. Jordan Rudess gave to us, this has to be one of the best versions I've heard. \m/ \m/

    Some 30-odd years ago, through one of those old Tape Clubs, I got a David Bowie best of which began with Space Oddity and ended with Ashes To Ashes. With not much of an understanding of the many ways that stereo could be used (and little to no understanding of "harmony vocals" at that point in time,) I was astonished one day when I played the tape in a boom box that had one speaker blown out. On the second "Ground Control to Major Tom," I heard Bowie's isolated harmony vocal for the first time.

    "What the hell is this? This isn't how it goes...but it fits."

    Then the countdown began...and the lead vocal was nowhere to be found. After the euphoric rush following the first vers, the second verse began...again, with Bowie's harmony vocal being the only one that I heard.

    I've never listened to that song the same way again. I learned that harmony vocal so well that I was able, on more than one occasion, to join a local musician onstage without any prior rehearsal. He just trusted me on my word that I could nail the harmony part.

    The whole point of this ramble is simply to let you know how important that harmony vocal has been to me, how integral to the song it is.

    I didn't even miss it, here.

    Well done, man!

    Sounds great as always Puddles. And you are such a busy youtube beast these days. And the Postmodern Jukebox videos shows up on by FB feed as a sponsored item, like they need more hits still. Showbiz in the digital age, go kill it out there however that's done today.

      On the bright side, it gave me the first chuckle listening to a Bowie song since he died. I don't know what it is, maybe clipping from the mic. But it's still a truly lovely version.

      The "s" really sounded more like an "sh", which in this case was rather unfortunate.

    Very well put together video! David Bowie is a hard act to follow in any measure, but I think you did justice to 'Space Oddity'. Very much in the spirit of Bowie, but it is your sound. :) I enjoy your style a lot. Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

    I have an internet radio station and play this song quite often followed by "Major Tom (Coming Home)" by Peter Schilling, which is the sequel to David Bowie's 'Space Oddity". They fit well together.

    Dear Mr Puddles,
    I wonder if you would be up for doing anything by Freddie Mercury,
    although I think that might be a bit of a strain, as his singing style was
    at times, controlled screaming. Very controlled screaming.

    Ground Control to Major Tom
    Ground Control to Major Tom
    Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
    Ground Control to Major Tom (ten, nine, eight, seven, six)
    Commencing countdown, engines on (five, four, three)
    Check ignition and may God's love be with you (two, one, liftoff)

    This is Ground Control to Major Tom
    You've really made the grade
    And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
    Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare
    "This is Major Tom to Ground Control
    I'm stepping through the door
    And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
    And the stars look very different today
    For here
    Am I sitting in a tin can
    Far above the world
    Planet Earth is blue
    And there's nothing I can do

    Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
    I'm feeling very still
    And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
    Tell my wife I love her very much she knows
    Ground Control to Major Tom
    Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
    Can you hear me, Major Tom?
    Can you hear me, Major Tom?
    Can you hear me, Major Tom?
    Can you "Here am I floating 'round my tin can
    Far above the moon
    Planet Earth is blue
    And there's nothing I can do

    Everything you do sounds amazing Puddles... Thank you for your artistry.
    I do have a song to suggest... Its not very popular, maybe a little dark... but feel you could pull it off PERFECTLY. Band name is Acid Bath... and i am torn between suggesting Scream of the Butterfly or Dead Girl. They are a little harder to find so I will include links for both. Keep being awesome man, we love it. -Scream of the Butterfly - Dead Girl
