It’s bothered me for more than 40 years. That line in David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” where Major Tom rather reasonably requests of Ground Control that they tell his wife he loves her very much and they slap him down without even considering it.
I had insomnia one night and though I can’t say that Space Oddity caused it, I did get up and write this response, which my wife and some RiffTrax people were kind enough to record. Bill Corbett is Major Tom, Bridget Nelson is his wife, I am Ground Control, and Conor Lastowka is the Narrator (he also graciously edited.)

"You gotta know the darker, uglier sides of yourself. You gotta recognise them so they’re not constantly sneaking up on you, you gotta love them because they’re part of you. Because along with your virtues, they make you who you are. Virtue isn’t virtue unless it slams up against vice, so consequently, your virtue is not real virtue, until it’s been tested. Tempted."
