David Bowie’s estate is to release a special reissue of  “Space Oddity” in honor of the song’s 50th Anniversary. The record will be part of a box set that will be released on July 12th. “Space Oddity” will turn 50 tomorrow. The song was Bowie’s breakthrough single.  When the song was first released in the U.S, it failed the charts. The song was re-released in 1973 and went to number 15.
