Has anyone ever heard this song The "Carpenters - Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft" ? I know the The Carpenters did not write and compose this song a Canadian group Klaatu did. Being a MASSIVE music fan i offen come across with with alien themes. but this one takes the cake









In your mind you have capacities you know
To telepath messages through the vast unknown
Please close your eyes and concentrate
With every thought you think
Upon the recitation we're about to sing

Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft

Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft

You've been observing our earth
And we'd like to make a contact with you
We are your friends

Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary ultra emissaries

We've been observing your earth
And one night we'll make a contact with you

We are your friends
Calling occupants of interplanetary quite extraordinary craft

And please come in pace we beseech you
(Only of love we will teach you)
Our earth may never survive (So don't come we beg you)
Please interstellar policemen
Won't you give us a sign give us a sign that we've reached you

With your mind you have ability to form
And transmit thought energy far beyond the norm
You close your eyes, you concentrate, together that's the way
To send a message we declare World Contact Day

Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft

Calling occupants
Calling occupants
Calling occupants of interplanetary, anti-adversary craft

We are your frien

I have heard the song. Apparently this song will be broadcast if and when First Contact is made, an unoffical anthemmfor the day in question. Boy what a day it will be if it does come to pass!!.

Just as significant is that Klaatu was rumoured to be the reunited Beatles new album which definitely had a modern beatlesque sound to it.

I had three of their albums. Most of their songs were sort of trippy, space sort of things. And they were this anonymous band. Rumour had it they were the Beatles. I remember my friends and I scanned for clues.

Little Neutrino

It's only you, it can't be me,
For I myself, refuse to be.
I am someone, you'll never know
I am the little neutrino.

Ah, the 60's. I remember it well.

Yes, their songs were "sort of trippy"... literally. Most of the songs were written under the influence of various substances.

This is an interesting thread.

I always equated the Carpenters to the Osmonds, not psychadelic music to be played at first contact.

Maybe Karen Carpenter was trying to keep herself thin so extraterrestrials would find her more unappealing as far as a source of food/nourishment goes.

Wasn't Klaatu the robot in The Day the Earth Stood Still?

Peace

I've been poking around these forums for a full week and this is the first comment I've come across that's truly offensive IMO. Still, a week by Internet standards is pretty good I suppose.

nope, the robots name was Gort, Klaatu was the actual alien (played by Michael Rennie)

One of the best movie soundtracks Ever *dreamy*

Ain't no way that song was written by the Beatles.

When Klaatu was dying from a gunshot, the lady [Patricia Neal] had to
give a message to Gort in a commanding voice,'Gort, Klaatu Barado Nikto.'
IMO, the message of that movies is as stong today as when it came out.



October 12, 2001--From Randi.org.


UFO Contact Day, Therapeutic Murder, IMAGINE, A Homeopathic Test?, and Nostradamus Loses — Again. Reader Tim Holt observes that when he read our item last week about the notice directed to "All Officers, Representatives and Members of Skywatch International, MUFON and any other organization and all UFO and Alien enthusiasts,"who were asked to participate in an Intergalactic experiment in which they would "attempt to send a message to the occupants of the [flying] saucers by use of mental telepathy [sic]," a bell rang for him. Something sounded familiar to Tim. There was a song first recorded by a Canadian group called Klaatu, "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft," the first song on their first album, "3:47 EST" (1976) then popularized by the familiar group The Carpenters later in the seventies. Compare these excerpts with the message-to-be-memorized that we posted last week:
In your mind you have capacities you know
To telepath messages through the vast unknown
Please close your eyes and concentrate
With every thought you think
Upon the recitation we're about to sing
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft . . .
You've been observing our earth
And we'd like to make a contact with you
We are your friends . . .
And please come in peace we beseech you . . .
You close your eyes, you concentrate, together that's the way
To send a message we declare World Contact Day . . .
We are your friends.


Reader Dave Bradley tells us, "Actually, there was a World Contact Day in the 1950s and that is where the Klaatu lyrics came from. This event is a direct copy of that original event." Hmmm. As I suspected, this effort by today's UFO fans to contact the little green guys isn't quite original....
