A Saucerful of Songs

Here are a group of songs dealing with outer space, aliens, and the space program in popular culture.

Since I've got a couple of CDs with this theme in the works (and there are probably TONS more songs I will never come across), I made sure to put one song with its sequel together here.  That's Jesse Lee Turner's "The Little Space Girl" and "I'm the The Little Space Girl's Father."

As you can imagine, most of these songs are fun and give the whole idea of otherwordly visitors the full novelty-song treatment.

As somebody else has mentioned, isn't it funny how many space visitors happen to sound just like Alvin and the Chipmunks?

Here are the songs:
