A little known song from Elton John/Bernie Taupin, "I've Seen The Saucers":



I wouldn't fool you but I've seen the saucers
So many times I'm almost in tune
Watching them flying in formation
Thinking how I could be so immune
I've seen them I've been there with them
I can tell you all you want to know
Something touched me and I was only sleeping
Wouldn't you, wouldn't you like to go

This pile of garbage got played on Radio2 (UK) today so thought I would put it up just to annoy folk, well it is Xmas..



And to make up for the above here's a poem from the great John Cooper Clark.. "I married a monster from outer space"...

Since I saw some other more contemporary artists (ie: Katy Perry) posted in this thread about dinosaur rock I guess I can post these:







And one of my favorites:

Except of some of the lyrics from the song above:


We fabricate our demons
Invite them into our homes
Have supper with the aliens
And fight the war alone
We conjure up our skeletons
Enlist the den of thieves
Frightened from our closets
Then sewn upon our sleeves

In the stream of consciousness
There is a river crying
Living comes much easier
Once we admit
We're dying



There are plenty of references to aliens and UFOs in current pop, rock and dance music. Perhaps we should start a new thread for the more current ones?

Everyone remembers this classic with the line about meeting a man from Mars:




This is another favorite:

How could any of us 'remember' the theme tune to the "Alien Autopsy" movie.



Son of Dork - We Are Not Alone

And David Icke's non-hit single with the same title




David Icke - We Are Not Alone

I think the title says Popular music, not hack jobs by "ufologists who attempt music"


That said, this song with the same title was much better than either of those, and popular. I'm surprised you didn't post it:



I also found the original video for Megadeth's Hanger 18:

UFOs and popular music



UFOs have had an enormous influence on popular culture. From TV, films, and perhaps that most accessible medium, the one of popular music. In this thread I’m not going to set any hard and fast rules; I’ll try to stick with a UFO based theme, but there may be tangents, some obvious like aliens, and others less so, perhaps the name of a club or maybe a song about space instead of UFOs.

I hardly intend to be definitive, instead preferring to focus on less items with more impact instead of an endless list which will make everyone’s eyes glaze over, and only the die-hard would be likely to persist. This opening thread shall only go up to the 70s - it is my intention to continue up to the present day, but for now what is delivered will have to suffice.


I hope you don't mind us posting more current music in this thread as well. You said it is your intention to continue to present day and some of us who weren't even born in the 1970s would like to add to it.

Excellent cover by shred metal band Racer-X of David Bowie's classic:



And another by The Killers:

LOL! I can't believe some one made a song from David Icke's verbal musings. Apparently it was created by "The Agenda" aka Martin Noakes. He was once part of little known eighties band Red Box.

The other track was something created by the dismembered remnants of UK band "Busted".

Neither of which are particularly outstanding tracks.

However that Nas track, in my opinion, is just as crap.

Kelis has a number of songs with an aliens/UFO theme. One of my favorite artists and probably one of the most underrated R&B artists ever.

This was my favorite from her on the aliens theme though:




Her more current stuff:

Linkin Park has a couple songs along this theme too.

Points of Authority from their album "Hybrid Theory"

No, I'm a liar and I mind heaps!










Joking


Anything alien, UFO related, and I don't even mind veering off on a tangent to that fringe science, astronomy!


One thing I'd like to see would be more of the weird UFO stuff that has happened to rock stars, celebrities, etc, like the Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon sightings, and even ridiculous stuff like the footage from the Hawkwind concert where there are heaps of Chinese lanterns everywhere and the guy filming thinks in amongst them is a UFO. I bet even some of the fringe dwellers here would recognise the Internationally mandated lights all aircraft are supposed to have and not cry 'UFO'


Or perhaps not

Gamma Ray is a German Power Metal band Formed by Kai Hansen, one of the founding members of Helloween.

This is Track 7 Valley Of The Kings off their 1997 album "Somewhere out in Space"

Valley Of The Kings Lyrics

At the bottom of the lyrics it has this description of what the song is about


"[ABOUT THE THOUGHT, THAT ANCIENT GODS WERE VISITORS FROM SOMEWHERE IN THE GALAXY, PUTTING THEIR CHILDREN INTO SOME KIND OF DEEP FREEZE SLEEP, AFTER IMPLANTING THE BASIS FOR OUR HUMAN INTELLIGENCE INTO OUR EARLY ANCESTORS. ONE OF THEM AWAKENING IN THESE DAYS, BEING USED TO BE SEEN AS A GOD, TRYING TO GET INFORMATION FROM HIS PARENTS ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON AND WHAT WILL COME UP NEXT, EXPRESSING THE WILL TO RETURN TO THE OLD STATUS.]"

Let's not forget:


Deep Purple - Space Truckin'


Montrose - Space Station #5


Elton John - Rocket Man


Prism - Spaceship Superstar




The 60's and 70's were a time when our hearts were free and our minds full of imagination.



I blame the psychedelics.

Take a trip back to 1957, the Sun Studios in Memphis Tennessee saw legends like Elvis, Perkins, Jerry Lee, and Johnny Cash.
One of the lesser known musicians of the time was Billy Lee Riley, who released Flyin Saucers Rock n Roll, with Jerry Lee guesting on piano.



This song went on to become a cult classic among ardent Rockabilly fans, with a British group named the Flying Saucers forming in the 1970's the "Saucers" were one of the top British bands of the era.
