It isn't his perfect cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity," but this song performed by our favorite retired astronaut, Chris Hadfield, is still pretty fantastic. And just in time for Canada Day.

The song, "In Canada," was written by Chris's brother Dave Hadfield, and the two of them sing this sweet tribute in honor of Canada's 147th birthday. Whether you're Canadian or not, you'll enjoy the fun lyrics, and gorgeous scenery in the video below:
