Song of the Day: Major Tom

Today’s song is Major Tom by Shiny Toy Guns.

Synthpop cover.
Nothing against the late ’80’s classic by Peter Schilling. Just like this rendition.

The synth/backing is just has a punch to it. Builds the tension, and I love its dip into ethereal tones.

We’re standing by. There’s no reply.

It just builds so well. The pace is set, rockets ahead, and each element keeps your head bobbing along.

Also, a female singer, adds a lot to the message of the song. Hits the sharp notes, pairing well at the ending.
Offers a balance that the original struggles with (nothing against, just my opinion).
