Musicians... are they trying to tell us something?

I was just listening to Joe Satriani on you tube and I was intrigued by one of his songs and album. Surfing with the alien on Not of this World Just watching the vid, I feel he looks like an alien LOL

Joe Satriani

Satriani's work frequently makes references to various science fiction stories and/or ideas. "Surfing with the Alien", "Back to Shalla-Bal" and "The Power Cosmic 2000" refer to the comic book character Silver Surfer, while "Ice 9" refers to the secret government ice weapon in Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle. "Borg Sex" is a reference to Star Trek, which features a homogeneous cybernetic race known as the Borg. Additionally, his albums and songs often have other-worldly titles, such as Not of this Earth, Crystal Planet, Is There Love in Space?, and Engines of CreationJoe Satriani

Then there is Jamiroquaii:

Albums such as Emergency on Planet Earth; Return of the Space Cowboy; Do you ever think that musicians, people who managed crack the big time - and influence the public are actually trying to tell us something?

Virtual Insanity

I just wonder how many signs are really around us that we don't see?

When I look back at videos or music, I am impressed with not only the talent, sheer brilliance that stands out from the ordinary. The talent or gift they have is at times beyond comprehension.

What if there are many people who are from other worlds come here and try to educate people? Or, give messages to us?

Music would be a very easy way of influencing people or even changing society.
Cosmic Girl

How much music around today refers to space life, other possibilities?

And isn't it ironic that we are so into music; so influenced by these amazing people who are so talented.

There's a very good chance that musicians are trying to tell you things- i.e. things they are interested in, things that have happened in their lives/relationships, things they'd like to do, vikings, etc...

yes of course.

My point is maybe some of them are not of this Planet; perhaps they are just interested in Sci Fiction?

Who knows but some of the lyrics are pretty interesting.

I'm gonna have to go with option B. What are the odds that if they were from another planet, they'd come here, and read science fiction novels/comic books, then write songs about them? Other examples- Jimmy Page likes Tolkien, so you get Ramble On, etc... Billy Gibbons likes hot rods, so you get some tunes with references to cars, etc...

Joe is a big Silver Surfer fan too. Steve Vai has lots of alien themes as well.

Hey I am musician. Click my signature. I do stuff like Satriani sort of...

I have an alien tune "Alien Resistance" it's the theme song for the UFO radio shoe Live From Roswell

I play all the instruments.. it's recorded at my home studio..

I have brand new tune "Funky Cat"

maybe you'll find out

I am listening to it right now...

'thief in the night' is good.

Your speaking voice is authoritive so adds weight to the words.

How ironic, your song definitely supports what I am saying...

Good question, Thurisaz- I love music as much as anyone, and I
know KISS might not qualify, but they sure had the look, huh?

Don't forget the chics in Robert Palmer's videos, all paisty and devoid
of emotion, but really hot anyway!

My record collection has a few: Electric Light Orchestra 'out of the blue'
features a spacecraft, lit-up like a saucer-shaped juke box! And one of
my Boston albums shows a spacecraft which is actually an upside-down
guitar, with a glass half-dome, zooming right at ya!

I am SO stuck in the 70's; my friends say- "buy CD's"... so I've got a
bunch of those now, like nine or ten! But there's no scratch or hiss,
and don't sound as good, IMO.

Hey thanks!!! Thanks for listening I have alot of fun making thoe tunes. I'm not the greatest singer so I do a lot of instrumental work.

You should check out Rush’s 2112. The seven piece suite that makes up the first side of the album is stellar. This came out in ‘76 long before the date 12-21-12 became well known. Here’s a link to the lyrics., but you should really have a listen, if you like progressive metal.

Some of what’s written here is narrative that isn’t included in the music. Only what is written in stanza’s is sung.

Man o man, resistor, you won't believe that I was gonna mention Rush!
Because of 2112, I became enlightened!

Great advice to anyone who wishes to be transformed in just 4 minutes
& 32 seconds!

Hemispheres is just about as good; my copy is pressed in red vinyl. I also
heard it was in blue, too, but never saw one. Maybe the dude is naked
because of time travel???

"And the meek shall inherit the earth". Rush.

Did you say vinyl LOL

Now this discussion is getting serious...

I have all my vinyl records
I sort of feel quite retro special when I get one out and play it on the record player

Well, allrighty then! I believe that vid is from the R-30 tour. Did you notice how the Overture ends with the big cannon fusillade in a tribute to the 1812 Overture? Since you’ve heard the first two pieces live here are all 7, the original studio stuff.

And in case any of you don’t know, Rush is currently on tour and sound better than ever, just don’t expect the shrieking vocals anymore. I’ve got 11th row for the Dallas show!!!

edit cause I can never get the inbed function to work.

and I can't speel neether
