Chris Hadfield, Barenaked Ladies song from space premieres – CBC News

8 02 2013

I wonder if David Bowie ever imagined someone really singing from space when he channelled Major Tom.

Here’s Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield and The Barenaked Ladies (now firmly sans Steven Page) singing together with the girls from Toronto’s Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts glee choir.

Chris Hadfield, Barenaked Ladies song from space premieres – Arts & Entertainment – CBC News.

It’s actually quite touching to see him glancing out of the window at earth rushing past at twice the speed of a bullet.

You’d almost think the entire ISS was a Canadian affair… except, being Canadian, the song makes a big deal of it being 15 nations in co-operation.

Full video at the CBC.
