Lyrics
Didn't know what time it was the lights were low

I leaned back on my radio

Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll 'lotta soul,

He said



Then the loud sound did seem to fade

Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase

That weren't no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive



[Chorus:]

There's a starman waiting in the sky

He'd like to come and meet us

But he thinks he'd blow our minds

There's a starman waiting in the sky

He's told us not to blow it

'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile

He told me:

Let the children lose it

Let the children use it

Let all the children boogie



I had to phone someone so I picked on you

Hey, that's far out so you heard him too!

Switch on the TV

We may pick him up on channel two



Look out your window I can see his light

If we can sparkle he may land tonight

Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright



[Chorus 2x]



La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Oh, Festividder, you have made today brighter. I broke away from rageface on Twitter to see if the vids were up and they were and this was the sort of sweet touching lovely thing I needed to see. It was the sort of loving-if-a-bit-wry tribute to fandom that the canon was, but distilled to its best.

Not to mention that the Bowie selection was an amazing touch, as was to put Rickman at the end. Indeed, 2016 was written by some dudebro hack in his mom's basement.

Thank you so much!

<3 I'm so glad you liked it, and it was a brief antidote to twitter-induced rage. Whichever dudebro wrote 2016 should DIE. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to rediscover how great this film is!

This is great! I love the movement between Mathesar and Nesmith being the Starman, that torch passing as Nesmith becomes increasingly comfortable being the hero Mathesar thinks he is.

LOVE. Fun and touching and perfect. I love how the chorus evolves throughout: first hilarious/scary/alien, then the friendships, and finally the crew themselves as the starmen returning to earth. And the inclusion of the fandom layer. And the end credits. Just great. <3
