Starcrossed, Misbegotten Love

New record alert!!! The ever-groovy Sonny & The Sunsets have recently released "Antenna to the Afterworld", an album that was apparently inspired by Sonny Smith's visit to a medium who put him in contact with a dead friend. It is a good listen all the way through, but probably the stand-out track is the closer, "Green Blood", which tells the tale of Sonny's affair with a space lady.

"Green Blood" - Sonny & The Sunsets

Of course, Sonny is not the first earthling to have fallen in love with someone from another planet. Rock and roll is littered with the victims of doomed inter-planetary love.

"Beautiful Zelda" - The Bonzo Dog Band

"Little Space Girl" - Jesse Lee Turner

"Girl From Mars" - Ash

And if you are wondering how I came up with the particularly poetic title for this post, truth be told I nicked it from the poetic Mr Prophet.

"Starcrossed Misbegotten Love" - Chuck Prophet
