Science Fiction

This program presents imaginative interpretations of Science Fiction. The opening instrumental is the theme from Close Encounters Of The Third Kind by Mecco. Two songs explore the bleak acopalyptic vision of man’s future starting with the Zager and Evans’ one hit wonder In The Year 2525 and The Final Countdown from Dutch group, Europe. There is an assortment of weird creatures such as Warren Zevon‘s Werewolves Of London, Little Blue Man (Petula Clark) and the Big Bopper‘s novelty The Purple People Eater Meets The Witch Doctor. Popular film ET is represented by Neil Diamond‘s brilliant Heartlight while Van McCoy puts a disco edge to Star Wars: The Next Generation. A curiosity is Two Little Men In A Flying Saucer from the legendary Ella FItzgerald.
