I think Semicollegiate is on the right track most likely.
There are other possibilities though, not just the "Either/Or" scenario you outline in the OP.
I'm pretty hazy on the whole thing as it's been years since I read up on it, but doesn't Carl Jung write about a collective unconscious (UFO's being a
potential manifestation out of it)?
IIRC (and in very hazy layman's terms!), he proposed theres a collective unconscious we all sort of tap in to unknowingly.
I think he suggests this is why certain melodies, Art, and classic monster imagery (the grey alien head for instance) really affects people, as they
were produced by artists that were pulling their material from these archetypical images and sounds we all "sort-of" already know deep down.
Just a thought (and I may be wrong in my recollection of Jung's study!)
I'll say 1 thing though. If that Funk "artist" was drawing from the Collective unconscious, he completely murdered whatever it originally was!
