When a story is a song #3 Space Oddity

I thought this week I would continue to be inspired by space.

When I was 15 I played this song over and over, it is a wonder the girls in my dorm didn’t smash the tape to smithereens. What I did not know until today was the song was originally released in 1969 just nine days before Apollo 11 landed on the moon. I was only one year old but clearly it is a song that tapped into the story of the time.  It must have resonated! Meanwhile, the day Apollo landed on the moon was the day electricity got connected to our farm.
