Oh sorry, Fluffy, I didn't register that you had said you'd like to do that one. I'm sure your version would be better than mine so please don't let me steal the fun-juice from your music-making bottle!

Just mailed in a version of Space Oddity. Don't know if it's my favorite Bowie tune or not, really, but affected me very much when I was very young. So there ya go.

Our song is on the way... as soon as Mr. Mosquito wakes up and sees my email. ;) I'll also assume that Mr. Mullet has made a final mix and that will be on the way as well... excited to hear everyone's songs.

Also, this isn't part of the post-Bowie tribute... it's something I recorded 10 years ago (damn) which was pre-Song Fight! for me... never shared it before, but I feel like this is a good place to put it.



Note: Link should be good.

Erin and I threw together a little cover of "Starman" for one of my Fun-A-Day music projects, on the 30th, so I figured I'd send that in to this also. It's here if you want to check it out:

I apologize, I have two songs started and both far from being finished. Too much overtime and too many other projects. I hope to finish them off in the next week. I figure I missed the boat on this tribute, but I'll post them to Soundcloud when I finish.

Cavedwellers are nearly done with Moonage Daydream, just waiting on a flute session.

That is my first instinct too. Though "life on Mars" or"changes" also have appeal
D'oh. Another unfulfilled promise.

In my defence - I have been losing my job, moving house and starting my own business. I am now moved and have some ongoing contracts. Time to start using my extra spare time. "Changes" still seems like a good cover to do.
