Well, knowing that once I was on the Space Station that would be it as far as getting more musical material, so I’d want some music that I could play over and over and never get sick of, as well as music that was acceptable according to Code 3 of the Intergalactic Music Council’s 2010 resolutions.
The Amy Winehouse CD is brilliant; her voice and writing are in prime shape. This CD harkens back to artists like Petula Clark and reminds me also of a lot of the old James Bond sound tracks with the big band sound. In outer space this sound will sound even bigger and “out there”.
Aladdin Sane is another one of those albums that you can play over and over. It’s out of this world! The songs are far from main stream but they have a pop brilliance in them nonetheless. I will have the David Bowie album cover to show any intergalactic life what earthlings really look like with pink stripes.
The Elvis Costello album “My Aim Is True” is another “short catchy song” album with such gems as Watching the Detectives, Allison, and Miracle Man. Elvis kinda looks like an alien-once again, this is to placate any intergalactic travelers who might not be into heavy metal, or as it’s known on Krypton Five, “Hell Music.”
As for Abby Road and Sticky Fingers, what can I possibly say? Both of these were albums I grew up on and can be obtained on “Red Hot Planet Recordings” as a box set. (subject to Intergalactic Space Tax and shipping from Uranus) .
