Spaceman (radio edit)

notes/observations/conspiratorial ramblings:
i    It might be coincidence but the Bridge is v/similar to Space Oddity by Bowie @ halftime. C *E minor* bits
ii   The chorus has harmonic similarities to Bowie's Starman -> F Dm Am C7
iii  The pitched up intro (a 5th up) has a tempo that almost taps triplets on the slower sections,
     if you maintain that tempo relationship then the song sounds heaps better.


Note: A = 10, C = 12, for want of a way where '10' is one character wide.


Intro (approx 112 bpm):
