A Rocket, Man!

Rocket Man was originally composed in 1972 by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. The song has been covered many times, I’m going to share my two favorite versions. First this ultra-cool cover of William Shatner (why yes, Captain Kirk!) at the 1978 Science Fiction Film Awards. This would also make a good instruction video for how to look awesome while smoking a cigarette.

Secondly, the version of one of my favorite bands: My Morning Jacket, as played on their early recordings album.

For all of you who were thinking of buying extra-terrestrial land: Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids.. in fact, it’s cold as hell!
