Earth Below Us ... with Lincoln

Ça fait des semaines que j'entends cette musique dans les annonces publicitaires de Lincoln. Je n'avais aucune idée de l'interprète ou du titre de la chanson. À force de la chantonner et de dire... FOUR-THREE-TWO-ONE...... na na na na na na... les filles ont trouvé le titre. Major Tom (Coming Home) Enfin! C'est une vieille toune, mais elle est très accrochante... J'vous l'jure, à chaque fois que j'entends cet air pendant une publicité.... ça me reste dans la tête pendant quelques heures.
Voici cette fameuse puce d'oreille:

Standing there alone
The ship is waiting
All systems are go
"Are you sure?"
Control is not convinced
But the computer
Has the evidence
No need to abort
The countdown starts

Watching in a trance
The crew is certain
Nothing left to chance
All is working
Trying to relax
Up in the capsule
"Send me up a drink"
Jokes Major Tom
The count goes on

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us
Drifting, falling
Floating weightless
Calling, calling home

Second stage is cut
We're now in orbit
Stabilizers up
Running perfect
Starting to collect
Requested data
"What will it affect
When all is done?"
Thinks Major Tom

Back at ground control
There is a problem
"Go to rockets full"
Not responding
"Hello Major Tom
Are you receiving?
Turn the thrusters on
We're standing by"
There's no reply

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us
Drifting, falling
Floating weightless
Calling, calling home

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us
Drifting, falling
Floating weightless
Coming home

Earth below us
Drifting, falling
Floating weightless
Coming, coming home

Vieille toune ??? wo wo ! c'est 1982 ... t'avais 9 j'en avais 14... Le Major TOm de cette chanson fait référence à celui dans l'excellente toune de David Bowie du même titre

Que de souvenirs!! La version originale est encore plus accrocheuse. Avec une voix moins siffleuse, c'est meilleur! C'était souvent une demande spéciale dans les discos du samedi soir... C'est pas si vieux que ça!...

Elle m'accroche vraiment cette toune-là!! Merci d'avoir mis le titre sur ton blog! En fait, est-ce que la version originale c'était de David Bowie ou bien j'ai compris tout croche le premier commentaire?
Sinon, qui est-ce que la chantait en version originale??
en passant, je suis jeune jeune jeune.. En 1982, je n'avais QUE 8 ans!! hihihi
