I love Telstar! It's the first song I remember ever catching my attention as a very small kid, as in 'this song's rather peculiar and i really like it'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/8/19 7:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Is it still doing anything?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:06pm Martinibomb:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/8/19 7:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Genius and complete lunatic, bless him :-)
It was the first simultaneous number one, I think - US and UK
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 7:07pm Mr Fab:

Greetings my friends! I won't be able comment much as I'll be up a ladder, getting covered in bits of paint. Landlord stuff, you understand. But will be Telstar-ing the whole show, you betcha.

Hmmmmm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:15pm Rich in Washington:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/8/19 7:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Seven notes. That's all. Does not a lawsuit make. I think it was just pettiness :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:16pm Rich in Washington:

I agree. It didn't seem that close to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/8/19 7:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Sick of Telstar yet??
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 7:24pm CC:

No sense in going to bed at this point!!!...hehehe...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:25pm spacebrother:

Nope. CC. Hope you're enjoying.
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 7:27pm CC:

I love my space...brother!!!...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:28pm spacebrother:

:)
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:28pm spacebrother:

Strange mixing in this one. Abrupt edits that are evident.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:31pm spacebrother:

May run a little late because of the late start, but no shows after me, so I should be OK.
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 7:32pm Mr Fab:

Dang, im trying to work but i have to keep stopping to clicky-star songs!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:33pm spacebrother:

Yes, and I THANK YOU.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:33pm spacebrother:

I found this version because of Mr. Fab.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:37pm spacebrother:

Once again the Shatner keeps time.
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 7:39pm CC:

Yeah I like the way Star Trek stole a bunch of the sound effects off of The Forbidden Planet!!!...
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 7:39pm Mr Fab:

Seksu Roba! Spacebrother and i saw em play this live theremin version at a show that Otis Fodder was DJing. Opening for Jean Jacques perrey, no less.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:45pm spacebrother:

That was a glorious night!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:48pm spacebrother:

@ CC - Was it the same movie studio as Forbidden Planet? Maybe they owned the music by Louis and Bebe Barron.
  Mon. 7/8/19 7:49pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I love these vocal versions.
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 7:50pm CC:

Now I really do like that one!!!
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 7:52pm CC:

I don't know I just noticed some of the sound effects were the same ones they used in Star Trek???
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:56pm spacebrother:

@ CC - As you say, the sounds were pretty singular, hard to produce, and probably made on unique equipment.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 7:59pm spacebrother:

That French version seemed like it was in a hurry.
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 8:00pm CC:

No doubt...and preserved in analogue for posterity's sake...I imagine...
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 8:05pm Mr Fab:

Ha, amazing. Who knew? Thanks so much Spacebro!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 8:05pm spacebrother:

You're welcome!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 8:05pm spacebrother:

I guess people got kinda sick of Telstar!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 8:05pm Martinibomb:

Fun show!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/8/19 8:12pm spacebrother:
