Why is David Bowie called the dame?

I believe its a result of his acceptance of the title given to him by who he refers to as wags ie the tabloids, where they referred to him as Dame David of Bowie.

-

He was given the name in the 80's by Smash Hits, a music magazine. As well as "Dame David of Bowie" they gave many other people silly names, among them Paul McCartney (Paul "Fab Macca Wacky Thumbs-Aloft" McCartney), Madonna (Madge) and Patrick Swayze (Patrick Swizzle).

Who is major tom in space oddity?

Major Tom is a Fictional Astronaut in David Bowies song(Space Oddity) who travels into space never to be found. Or so we think...In another song by David Bowie,Ashes to Ashes, Major Tom reports to ground control that he is happily floating in space. But then in Peter Schillings Song,Major Tom (coming home), Major Tom attempts to return to Earth.Later in the song Tom says give my wife my love and then when ground control attempts to communicate he does not respond. This was sadly the last song directly affecting MAJOR tom. Except, Granddady released the song "He's Simple,he's Dumb,he's the pilot".It does not mention Major Tom but if the pilot is him then Major tom returns to Earth safely.The next song about Major Tom was released by K.I.A which is about his wife waiting on Earth for his return. No more songs were about anything in Space Oddity, but Elton John's Rocket Man may be a reference to Tom. No more songs have been referencing to Major Tom. So Major's Tom fate is still undetermined, leaving a mystery to be solved.........

Who wrote major tom?

David Bowie wrote lyrics about his fictional (autobiographical) character "Major Tom" for the songs Space Oddity(1969 & 1972) and Ashes to Ashes (1983). Later, Peter Schilling's Major Tom (Coming Home) (1985) hit song pays tribute to Bowie's invented character. Since the introduction of Major Tom in 1969 there has been many references to the character in sitcoms, movies and songs from other artists. It was presumed that Elton John's hit song Rocket Manalluded to the character, a belief that gained some validation when Bowie's live performance of Space Oddity included the lyrics "Oh, Rocketman!".
