DAVID BOWIE Topped UK Singles Charts For The First Time With A Re-Release Of ‘SPACE ODDITY’ In 1975…

Knockouts from the past

10 November 2019

DAVID BOWIE released his breakthrough single SPACE ODDITY – inspired by Stanley Kubrick‘s film 2001: A Space Odyssey – 50 years ago, on 11 July 1969. It was specifically planned to be out just before the first moon landing, the day after, on 20 July. It hit the
top five of the British charts but became an even greater success in 1975, upon a re-release as part of a maxi-single. Despite a series of previous top singles, this re-issue became Bowie‘s very first UK No. 1 single on 10 Nov 1975, 44 years ago.

Ground control to Major Tom
