Major Tom was a great song, and more recently represented a poor marketing decision by Lincoln. But it does have a certain melodramatic element that lends itself to Shatnerness.
Shatner's new album is due out later this year and will feature covers of popular space related ( or quasi-space-related) songs. Among the songs he plans to cover are:
- Bohemian Rhapsody
- Iron Man
- Walking on the Moon
- Major Tom
the one song that started it all...
and made us love and hate the man at the same time...
bringing silliness and awesomeness to its epic confluecne
