Happy, meet Ziggy.
Adam Sandler sings the David Bowie classic "Space Oddity" in the upcoming "Mr. Deeds," and the comedian's version appears as an introduction to the original on the soundtrack.
"Mr. Deeds," a remake of Frank Capra's 1936 film "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" starring Sandler and Winona Ryder, is due in the theaters June 28, according to an RCA Records spokesperson for the project.
Aside from new material by Counting Crows and Dave Matthews Band, the soundtrack, due June 11, is a collection of proven hits both old (Pete Townshend's "Let My Love Open the Door") and new (Trik Turner's "Friends & Family").
Dave Matthews Band's "Where Are You Going" is the first single off the soundtrack (as well as the band's as-yet-untitled album) and will debut on radio in mid-May (see "Dave Matthews Band Revives Old Tunes On New LP").
