As a vocalist, both Bowie and Mercury were my main vocal mentors, and, both will always remain two of the premier vocalists of our time.

This album was released as Man Of Words/Man Of Music on Mercury in the US omitting the track Don't Sit Down. It was reissued worldwide on RCA as Space Oddity in 1972 ...

But for heaven’s sake, listen to this song with the full band. Queen—not generally an outfit renowned for subtlety—has never sounded so lithe and nimble as they do here. Roger Taylor’s kick drum pulses a disco heartbeat on the 2 and 4, while Mercury’s piano and Brian May’s guitar shimmy and snake alongside each other. “It’s a terror knowing what this world is about,” sings Bowie, but with the music behind him it’s hard to take his word for it. After all, arena rock was never supposed to be able to dance like this .

The song quickly resonated with the public, sparked in large part by the BBC's use of the single during its coverage of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The song enjoyed later success after being released in the United States in 1972, climbing to number 15 on the charts.
