Space Is The Place

Space Is The Place
March 20, 2006 07:58PM
The post about the Only One's only one hit "Another Girl Another Planet" got me thinking: say you're up in the TP Orbiting Disco Lounge spinning all the platters that matter for the folks looking out that big picture window at Earth, and worlds beyond. What's in your record crate? (Besides all the versions of "Another Girl Another Planet")

Athletico Spizz '80 "Where's Captain Kirk"
Devo "Space Junk"
Bowie "Space Oddity," and its doppeganger Peter Schilling's "Major Tom"
Man or Astro-Man (but which song?)
Husker Du "Books About UFOs"
B52s "Planet Claire" & "There's A Moon In The Sky Called The Moon"
The Church "Under The Milky Way"
Adolescents "Kids of The Black Hole"

The Pistols play Hawkwind's "Silver Machine" live but was it released? Can't find it on anything listed on Amazon, but granted, I didn't go through all 177 (!) albums listed.

Bonus points to madisdadi for digging up the lost SUN RECORDS classic by Billy Lee Riley. Great, great tune. . .

And, like "Another Girl," how many of these so-called space songs are really just thinly disguised mash notes to smack?

Rocket USA - Suicide (probably)
Wandering Star - Portishead (could be)
Orion - Jethro Tull (doubtful)
