Get out

spacewalker

Three tunes today in honour of Tim Peake‘s spacewalk. It would have been so easy to just post a load of songs punning on “Peake”, but I’m classier than that. Well, today I am. So instead we have Jean-Jacques Perrey‘s much-sampled, and much-bunged-on-TV-soundtracks moogtastic “E.V.A.” from 1970 (which I only just learned today was co-written by a young Angelo Badalamenti), Lemon Jelly sampling a recording of Ed White‘s 1965 spacewalk (it’s beautiful… just beautiful), and Phil Oakey getting, er… phil-osophical about the whole business.
