New Genre: Space Angst?

Been having 70's music session, specifically Elton John and David Bowie and then I've been addicted to Elton John's 'Rocket Man' and David Bowie's 'Space Oddity'. Both songs tells a story about them leaving their wife or significant other for space, sad song but I think Space Oddity is more depressing (in a good way) just don't over internalize Major Tom, hard situation to be Major Tom. In Rocket Man's case at least there is a little hope left, it's would just be a long, long time, till he can least.

With two heartbreaking, difficult situations to battle, Thus giving birth to the term 'Space Angst', what do you guys think lol?

anyhoo, just enjoy Elton John's live performance of the song, nice piano solo too ;) and David Bowie's 1969, Music Video for Space Oddity.
