Radio XXXIXL, side A, track 12: “Dancing In Heaven (Orbital Be-Bop)” by Q-Feel

Q-Feel - Dancing in HeavenOh, Q-Feel, I don’t know how many songs there might be in this sub-genre, but I LOVE LOVE LOOOOVE pop songs set in outer space.  No matter how fun and peppy and upbeat they are, at some point there’s at least one moment of giddy creepiness.  Like in this one, one of my favoritest of favorite songs of my youth, everything’s going along great and suddenly you hear “Are you receiving me clear?  There’s others out here.”  No matter whether you say it or sing it or scream it, it’s gotta give you a little shiver up your spine when you hear something like that.

I’m glad this song came up again on my track list, Q-Feel, and not just because I love it so.  I’ve actually been having a lot of thoughts about outer space lately.  I blame it all on “Cosmos”, which I finally got around to finishing.  And ever since I’ve finished it, I’ve found myself questioning the significance of, well, pretty much everything.  Which makes for fun times in my head, as I’m sure you can imagine, Q-Feel.  And while I respect Neil DeGrasse Tyson immensely for his excitement about the wonders of the universe, and while I agree that the universe is an amazing place, it’s hard to get the motivation to get my ass out of bed and go to work when I’m clearly living on an infinitesimally tiny portion of borrowed time as one tiny dot living on a slightly larger dot in a swirling cosmic maelstrom that will go on whether I exist or not.

So I’ve got that going for me.

But whatever, Q-Feel, and I totally get how annoying it is that I’m acting like I’m the first person who’s ever had an existential crisis.  But I MIGHT be the first person who’s ever had an existential crisis partially due to listening to “Dancing In Heaven”.

Countdown is getting in the flight time
Night stars are shinin’ in my eyes

To dance the be-bop in the skiiies

I’d ever get my feet this far
Orbital be-bop

I never thought
I’d ever get my feet this far
Orbital be-bop
Kick it out

Quick, quick, slow

I’ll be the first ta bossa nova
Ten thousand miles above L.A.

Boogie my way beyond the radar
I’ll bring jive to outer spaaace
