technission Space - The Final Folk Frontier? (54* d) RE: Space - The Final Folk Frontier? 01 Mar 02


Gosh, I just stepped out for launch and look at all these subspace transmissions. There was a great album by Jefferson Airplane as they morphed into J Starship,titled "Blows Against The Empire"...it might have been released as some individual artist's names rather than the group's name, like frinstance Jorma Kaukonen/Grace Slick ? Anyway, it's home dock for "have you seen the stars tonight (song title + first line) ..would you like to go up on "A" deck and look at them with me -- Do you know, we could go, we are free.." Grace's typical soaring voice, maybe not always technically harmonious but certainly complementary! "Hijack" on the same album is an extended ramble about hijacking the starship and probably not suitable for children due to drug references. Same album, non-spatial, but suitable for mudcatter's interest is "Harp Tree Lament" , maybe this is actually a traditional song?? I don't know but it is performed that way.

Totally different: Weird Al Yankovich sings a hilarious (the first few times) song about Star Wars ep IV story, to tune of Don Maclean's "American Pie", I think album name is "Running with Scissors"

My, My this here Anniken guy Could be Vader maybe later , now he's just a small fry He left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye Saying "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi... soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

Besides being humorous the song is an accurate synopsis of the tale....

Live long and prosper. And, "Just because they smile and eat chicken doesn't mean they've mastered their emotions."
