    War Requiem, Benjamin Britten It'll scare the sht out of the aliens
    Posted by GreginMeffa


    Britten's War Requiem is probably the most emotionally shattering musical work I know.  For pure scariness though I'd have to go with the Sacrifical Dance from Stravinsky's Rite of Spring which as EES noted is in fact on the Voyager playlist.  There's probably a youtube somewhere with the Nijinsky choreography - the character dances herself to death.

    "I'd Love To Change The World" by Ten Years After.

    The message seems more appropriate now than ever.

    But we won't have to send a recording on a spaceship, UFO's have been here and will soon return. They will access our databanks and retrieve all information about us ( most likely we will have destroyed all life by then) , they will scratch their heads ( assuming they have heads) and wonder why fools were dancing to groups dressed in Halloween costumes singing about the YMCA. They will wonder what "boogie, oogie, oogie" means. They will take one look at artists like Alice Cooper, David Bowie and Lady Gaga and figured we'd all gone insane around 1970. They will view videos of the Talking Heads and Devo and groan.

    They will likely say something like this, "Beam us up Scotty, there has never been nor is there now any intelligent life on this world."

    Heck no, it wasn't me that was first to try scaring the s**t out of the aliens!

    But I do think humanity is too complex to represent in 1 song.  The Voyager playlist isn't bad in terms of diversity, and our humble group as always picks some great stuff.

    THIS is why I don't have to worry about my own personal survival.  Because I do know what "boogie oogie oogie" means.

    Okay, glad to hear you say that (and I didn't think so -- but just had to check).  Relieved. :)   

    Why do we need to scare aliens, anyhow?  Maybe try winning them over, you know?  That's the ticket to my way of thinking, as a girl human, of course.  :D

    I'm the only one here who posted a Beatles song.  I was surprised you didn't, too.  Whaddup?  :D

    Re: 1 saong to represent humanity

    Late to the party, and many good suggestions. I will add the following ... "Walk On" by U2.

    They played it right after 9/11 on benefit show the networks ran. Though they had written the song prior to 9/11 (about the activist Aung San Suu Kyi), I though the lyrics capsulated what needed to be said. Especially ...

    And I know it aches
    How your heart it breaks
    And you can only take so much
    Walk on, walk on

    Ever since that night, I've always considered it such a powerful and uplifting song.

    Oh, and neat topic.
