Peter Schilling’s Major Tom


Peter Schilling (born Pierre Michael Schilling; January 28, 1956) is a German synthpop musician whose songs often feature science-fiction themes (aliens, astronauts, nuclear holocaust, etc.).

His 1983 album, Error in the System, generated his only international hit single, “Major Tom (Coming Home)”, a retelling of David Bowie’s classic 1969 song “Space Oddity”. Although the song was originally recorded in German, the international hit version was sung in English.
