Often referred to as the ‘Kenny Everett version’ courtesy of it having been performed on the UK radio presenter’s television show (see unique performance below), this track was originally the b-side to the  Alabama Song single from 1979. It’s a completely new recording of Bowie’s breakthrough single that Rykodisc added to the 1991 reissue of  Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) . A bleak, stripped down version of the song with dramatic piano chords, the despair and isolation of ‘Major Tom’ is all too apparent. This was Bowie ending his incredibly creative decade the way it had begun. It should really have been saved as the b-side to  Ashes to Ashes given the ‘Major Tom’ name-check in that song.

Bowie settled in New York to record the paranoiac Scary Monsters (Number 12, 1980), updating "Space Oddity" in "Ashes to Ashes." One of the first stars to understand the potential of video, he produced some innovative clips for songs from Lodger and Scary Monsters . After that album, Bowie turned his attention away from his recording career. In 1980 he played the title role in The Elephant Man , appearing in Denver, in Chicago and on Broadway. He collaborated with Queen on 1981's "Under Pressure" and provided lyrics and vocals for "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)" (Number 67, 1982), Giorgio Moroder's title tune for the soundtrack of Paul Schrader's remake of Cat People . His music was used on the soundtrack of Christiane F (1982), and he also appeared in the film. That year, Bowie also starred in the BBC-TV production of Brecht's Baal , and as a 150-year-old vampire in the movie The Hunger .

The 2015 remaster from the Five Years box was released separately in a jewel case (Parlophone 0825646283453). Reissued on blue vinyl (DBISHLP 2015) for the 'David Bowie Is' exhibition in Groningen. This LP came with the US artwork (second), but, contrary to the original release, included 'Don't Sit Down'.
