The Horror Honeys: Sci-Friday Jam - 'Space Travel is Boring'

Sci-Friday Jam - 'Space Travel is Boring'

Won herself a pass to some far off moon
It was second class but what's to lose?
And looking out her window she could more than assume
That you can't see air or time
She's the only rocketeer in the whole damn place
They gave her a mirror so she could talk to a face
She still got plenty lonely but that's just the case
With time, time, time...

This Modest Mouse track is from way back in 1996, and that hipster-y era when hardly anyone knew who they were except hardcore fans. They were definitely a little more punk back then, but their songs were still a blast and told awesome stories. For example, this upbeat but somehow, still bummer of a tune about a young lady who discovers that riding shotgun on a spaceship isn't all it's cracked up to be. So enjoy, Alien Bees, and think twice before you take that second-class ticket on a rocket! ~RH
