War of the Worlds!

Listening to: Coconut – Harry Nilsson

Today in 1938 Orson Welles panicked a nation with the broadcast of “War of the Worlds”.  To celebrate the fictious invasion by aliens, I’d like to hear:

Smooth Criminal – Alien Ant Farm

War – Edwin Starr (no relation to Ringo)

The Final Countdown – Europe

Across the Universe – the Beatles

Space Oddity – David Bowie

Men in Black – Will Smith

Everything was so much simpler back then.  If you wanted to fake an alien invasion now, it would require Industrial Light and magic, Pixar, and coordinating feeds on the internet including Twitter and Facebook posts and some how getting Red Bull to sponsor it.  Even then, we’d want  to see Jeff Probst walk into their lasers and get burned up just to prove it’s true.  You have been warned, Jeff Probst. 

If I were an alien invading Earth, I wouldn’t invade directly, instead, I would create a series of boy bands that I would send down to get established, get huge fan bases, and then announce “One Direction New Kid Sync Menudo palooza” where all the boy bands would perform for 72 straight hours, at the end of which all the attendees would be barely alive from screaming and dehydration.  Then it would be pretty simple to take over
