Tribute to Neil Armstrong- Sting singing Walking on the Moon

I’m posting this song by Sting (written back when he was part of The Police) in tribute to Neil Armstrong who died on August 25th, 2012.  I still remember sitting glued to our black and white television in July 1969 to see the first moon landing of Apollo 11 and watch him take his first steps on the moon and hear him utter the unforgettable words  “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.  It is still a defining memory of my life, and the lives of millions of others around the world something that many thought would not happen in our lifetimes.  This song, one of my favourites, is the first thing that came to my mind when I heard of his death.
