The Horror Honeys: Sci-Friday Jam - 'Rapture'

Sci-Friday Jam - 'Rapture'

Go out to the parking lot
And you get in your car and you drive real far
And you drive all night and then you see a light
And it comes right down and lands on the ground
And out comes a man from Mars
And you try to run but he's got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night, eatin' cars

I grew up idolizing Blondie: her style, her voice, the fact that she was a badass babe in a male dominated industry. But most of all, I loved the music. So many of the band's songs are perfection, but I knew all of the words to "Rapture" before I could even spell my own name. Not only is "Rapture" memorable because it actually brought hip-hop sensibilities into the mainstream pop lexicon (via a skinny blonde from New York), but it's also an awesome sci-fi song about a head/car eating alien who likes to rock and then eat some people in bars. Scary, but also, PUNK RAWK! ~RH
