Contest: Space is the Place for SINGLES
From A Trip to The Moon (1902)
A friend recently IM’d me that she needed “5 songs about space...quick!” I rattled off a few songs at least loosely related to the firmament and it seemed to do the trick to get her released from Somali pirates, win a scavenger hunt, or come up with a theme party Spotify playlist as the case may have been, but it got us thinking.
Of a fun CONTEST for the Zub community! You are always on our minds, dear readers and podsters!
The rules: List 5 songs that have something to do with SPACE. You can have an additional sub-theme, like space travel, space objects, or aliens, or maybe pick a particular genre (5 raga space songs? I DARE you). The more creative, the better. Bonus points for links to Discogs and degree of difficulty! The songs do NOT need to have formally have been released as singles. A quick explanation of why each song was selected is permitted but not required.
5 songs somewhat about food (we can’t just give you space, can we)
- Fish & Chip Paper (Elvis Costello & Attractions)
- With A Cantaloupe Girlfriend (The Three O’Clock)
- Cups & Cakes (The Thamesmen)
- Yes, We Have No Bananas (new to public domain!)
- Polk Salad Annie (Tony Joe White, bite me Elvis)
I am not sure any of those are actually about food, but you get the idea.
The prize: Bragging rights, natch. AND 3 BRAND NEW Zub stickers!
Ooh--high quality vinyl stickers! Wonder which 3 I'll win?
