Even MOAR Awesome Sauce Music: From Space!

Chris Hadfield is a Canadian astronaut that is currently up in the space station. If you watch Canadian news he has been doing a lot of interviews from the space station. Most recently he has recorded a song with Canadian band The Barenaked Ladies (if you watch Big Bang Theory – they did the theme song). The song, Is Somebody Singing, is very lovely and brought tears to my eyes…and is recorded from the space station!!!

Here is the song.

What I think is really cool about Chris Hadfield is that all of Canada is watching him. He is an astronaut superstar and that is what we need. Astronauts need to, once again, be the heroes for little kids so we can push forward on space exploration.

Is Somebody Singing (I.S.S)
By Chris Hadfield and The Barenaked Ladies
Lyrics

On solid fuel and wires
turn the key and light the fire
we’re leaving Earth today.
This rocket is burning bright
we’ll soon be out of sight
and orbiting in space.

Push back in my seat
look out my window
there goes home.
That ball of shining blue
houses everybody anybody ever knew

So sing your song
I’m listening out where stars are glistening
I can hear your voices bouncing off the moon.
If you could see our nation from the international space station
You know why i want to get back soon.

18 000 miles an hour
fueled by science and solar power. (?)
The oceans racing past
at half a thousand tonnes
90 minutes moon to sun
a bullet can’t go half this fast

Floating from my seat
look out my window
there goes home
that brilliant ball of blue
is where I’m from and also where I’m going to

So sing your song
I’m listening out where stars are glistening
I can hear your voices bouncing off the moon.
If you could see our nation from the international space station
You know why i want to get back soon.

All black and white just turns fades to grey
With sun rises 16 times a day
You can’t make out boarders from up here
Just a spinning ball within a tiny atmosphere

Push back in my seat look out my window
here comes home
What once was fueled by fear
now has 15 nations orbiting together here

So sing your song
I’m listening out where stars are glistening
I can hear your voices bouncing off the moon.
If you could see our nation from the international space station
You know why I want to get back soon.
(Getting back to you)
You know why I want to get back soon.
(Getting back to you)
You know why I want to get back soon.
(Getting back to you)
You know why I want to get back soon.
(Getting back to you)
You know why I want to get back soon.
(Getting back to you)
