This song tells the true story of an unexpected pregnancy. Back in the the mid-2000s, Presley found she was bearing a child by someone she'd only known for three months. "I was freaked out," the singer recalled to People. "I'm from a one-traffic-light town in the mountains in Kentucky, and I felt like I was bringing shame on my family."
Presley ended up having her son, Jed. "It's crazy because it is a such a wonderful blessing to have a child," she said. "It's a gift from God, and to feel like it's going to bring shame doesn't make sense."
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
