Ground Control to Major Clown! (Sorry, that one was a gimme.) There aren’t a lot of people who can sing the songs of David Bowie almost as well as the man himself, but I’d like to think that if he’d had a choice of who might carry on his torch, he’d have hoped it would be a mostly silent seven-foot tall party clown with the voice of an angel. Enter Puddles Pity Party to make the magic happen with a minimalist, disco-like cover that stays true to the original’s sad spirit.
If you like this version of David Bowie’s classic 1969 track, you can also grab this cover as a single pretty much wherever you find music—Spotify, iTunes, what have you. Is this your favorite cover Puddles Pity Party’s ever done? Let us know if you’ve got a different one, and let’s turn the comments into a Puddles Praising Party. Eh? Ehhh? (I’ll see myself out)
