Alien Life Imagined: The Musical


Loving the Aliens

When “Across the Universe” was transmitted into deep space in 2008, NASA hoped the song’s journey across the universe would bring contact with other beings. The famous Beatles’ tune may have been the first one sent to the aliens, but it’s not the only piece of music influenced by them: musicians from Beethoven to Ella Fitzgerald to Radiohead have all produced acoustic renderings of extraterrestrials.


So here’s a sample of what the soundtrack to Mark Brake’s Alien Life Imagined might sound like:

Loving the Alien (David Bowie)


Also Sprach Zarathustra (Richard Strauss)


Two Little Men in a Flying Saucer (Ella Fitzgerald)


Intergalactic (Beastie Boys)


Subterranean Homesick Alien (Radiohead)


Men in Black (Will Smith)


Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois (Sufjan Stevens)


Motorway to Roswell (The Pixies)


Exo-Politics (Muse)


Moonlight Sonata (Beethoven)


Texas Man Abducted by Aliens for Outer Space Joy Ride (Jad Fair & Yo La Tengo)
