Odyssey to 2001: Top 5 Space Tunes
As voted by you, my fellow earthlings, the next year in my time travels will be the official start of our current millennium.
The year 2001.
If you read 2001 in the last sentence and the words Space Odyssey immediately jumped to mind, chances are we will/we already get along just fine.
Naturally, the theme of space travel was on my mind when I started typing today, as was Ovidiu @ tangledupinmusic‘s enjoyable “Play this more often” series.
Not only do I recommend visiting his site more often, to borrow his idea, I’d say these 5 Space songs ought to be played more often too!
5. Flight of the Conchords, Bowies in Space
“That’s pretty far out, man.”
4. Queen, ’39
Not the happiest of space tales but a great one.
3. Radiohead, Subterranean Homesick Alien
Mid-90s Radiohead with a tip of the hat to mid-60s Bob Dylan, what’s not to like?
2. Elton John, Rocket Man
Bonus space points for the William Shatner interpretation.
1. David Bowie, Starman
A Bowie #1 was inevitable, perhaps the only real suspense here was which Bowie song.
2001 efforts from Björk & Super Furry Animals are up next, enjoy!
