Bowie vs. Helloween - Space Oddity

Helloween's version is quite a perfect remake of David Bowie's Space Oddity!
What do you think?

Where Are We Now - 2013

On January 8, 2013, quite without fanfare and out of the blue, David Bowie did something nobody really expected. He released a new single entitled 'Where Are We Now' and announced the release of a new album in March. The album, 'The Next Day' is Bowie's 30th studio album and his first new album in 10 years.

There are many great Bowie songs, but my all time favorite is Space Oddity. I wonder which is yours?

Tonight another "battle", a battle called: "Dreamer Deceiver".
He said in the cosmos is a single sonic sound
That is vibrating constantly
By chance, a few years ago, I've came over Dreamer Deceiver, a Judas Priest's cover (the third song from the album Sad Wings of Destiny) performed by Skyclad. The original sound of Skyclad, turned the original song into a much more powerful one. It is one of that few situations in which the cover is (way much) better than the original. Judas Priest's (and even metal ballads) fans might argue with my point of view. I am not questioning the undoubted value of Judas Priest, I am only put into the balance two version of the same song!
