Perhaps David Bowie is taking this “collaborate with the unexpected” thing a bit too far.
Dave Grohl (a rock and roll purist) and Moby (remember Outside?) at least make some sense, but Adam Sandler?
That’s right, Ziggy and Happy have joined forces for an updated version of the Bowie classic “Space Oddity.”
The song will appear on the soundtrack to “Mr. Deeds,” a remake of Frank Capra’s 1936 film “Mr. Deeds Goes to Town” starring Sandler and Winona Ryder and due in the theaters June 28, according to an RCA Records spokesperson for the project.
Aside from new material by Counting Crows and Dave Matthews Band, the soundtrack, due June 11, is a collection of proven hits both old (Pete Townshend’s “Let My Love Open the Door”) and new (Trik Turner’s “Friends & Family”).
Dave Matthews Band’s “Where Are You Going” is the first single off the soundtrack (as well as the band’s as-yet-untitled album) and will debut on radio in mid-May.
