Peter Schilling

Peter Schilling (born Pierre Michael Schilling; January 28, 1956) is a German synthpop musician whose songs often feature science-fiction themes (aliens, astronauts, nuclear holocaust, etc.).

Schilling was born in Stuttgart, Germany.  His 1983 album, Error in the System, generated his only international hit single, "Major Tom (Coming Home)", a retelling of David Bowie's classic 1969 song "Space Oddity".  Although the song was originally recorded in German, the international hit version was sung in English.

 In 1984 and 1985, Schilling released the albums 120 Grad and 120 Grad's English-language version, 1985's Things to Come. From 1986 to 1989, Schilling released non-album singles and put out his 1988 compilation The Different Story. In 1990, Schilling suffered from burnout and the following year he took a break. In 1994, he married his girlfriend Catyana. They got divorced in 2003. He is married to his second wife since 2012.

In the late '90s, Schilling formed a side project called Space Pilots,  which appeared on the first issue of the popular dance music compilation Dancemania series.  The band included Catyana Schilling, J. Feifel, and P. Magnet. They have recorded only one song, titled "Trip to Orion".

It was released on vinyl and CD in 1995, and appears on the Japanese dance compilation CD Dancemania 1. The song is based on and includes vocal samples from the German science-fiction TV show Raumpatrouille Orion.

At the beginning of the 2000s he formed a new band and currently plays live concerts with his band, touring Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

Peter Schilling - Major Tom

"Major Tom (Coming Home)" (German: Major Tom (Völlig Losgelöst), translation: "Major Tom (completely detached)"), is a song by singer Peter Schilling from his album Error in the System. With a character unofficially related to "Major Tom", the protagonist of David Bowie's 1969 song "Space Oddity", the song is about the character being caught in an accident in space.[citation needed]

The song was originally recorded in German, and released in West Germany on January 3, 1983. It reached No. 1 in West Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The English version was first released in the United States on September 24, 1983. It reached No. 1 in Canada, No. 14 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart in late 1983, and No. 4 in South Africa. The English-language version of the song also reached No. 2 on the dance chart in the U.S.

In 1994, Schilling made and released a remixed version along with Bomm Bastic, titled "Major Tom 94". Another remix was released in 2000, titled "Major Tom 2000", and yet another in 2003 titled "Major Tom 2003".
