Love To Love You (And Tonight Pigs Will Fly)

The longest piece of music on the Voyager Golden Record is a chin-stroke inducing 8-minute guqin masterclass by Guan Pinghu. However, I need to save space. So I’m sacrificing Caravan’s ‘The Dog, The Dog, He’s at it Again’ (which is awesome, but 6 minutes long) in favour of Caravan’s ‘Love To Love You‘ (which is awesome, but just 3 minutes long).

Tarred and Feathered

I love The Cardiacs, if only for the polarising effect they seem to have on listeners. While ‘Tarred and Feathered‘ is quite unpleasant, I can imagine it might appeal to extra terrestrial beings with no common cultural reference points. Indeed, when we finally make contact with an alien race, I suspect their music will sound like this.
