Will.i.am's New Single Premiered On Mars, Nobody Complained, Another Proof There Is No Life On Mars

So we reached the moon(RIP Neil Armstrong)in the late 60s and now we are reaching Mars with NASA laboratory’s rover Curiosity, but the only music linked with this fabulous accomplishment is the new will.i.am’s song? His new single, appropriately named ‘Reach for the Stars’ – actually I take this back because the red planet is not a star! – premiered on Mars last Wednesday at 1 pm PT in the afternoon, and that's a good thing nobody was there to hear it it!

 

It’s a good thing because anything produced and written by the Black Eyed Peas’s rapper makes me cringe. How did he get this out-of-this-world opportunity? Apparently he hangs out at NASA facilities quite often, in particular at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada Flintridge, and found a way to convince people there, to upload the song to the rover en route for a journey of 700 million miles. He tweeted on Monday: ‘I will be apart [sic] of the first song ever to be sent from another planet — mars to earth tomorrow’

 

It’s too bad that the song sucks,.. is this the only thing we can send to represent the human species in the universe? First, it is auto-tuned beyond repaired – at least they could have chosen something with more human vocals – the strings are annoying and the bombast with choir quite tiresome. After the second repeat of the song, I couldn’t stand it anymore.

 

Actually, when I said that nobody heard the song, it was false since students had gathered for a news conference and heard the song when it was beamed down from the robot to the Laboratory in Pasadena, proof that scientists don't always have the best taste in music.

 

According to NASA, ‘Reach of the Stars’ deals with will.i.am's ‘passion for science, technology, and space exploration’… May be the guy is passionate about science, but he is far from being a science wizard, and there are a few examples showing that sometimes things do not exactly connect inside his brain. This is a guy who used an helicopter, a one-mile-per-gallon vehicle, to attend a climate change event this year, this is a guy who told Rolling Stone about his personal theory regarding music and success: circles and multiples of three (45s, 33s, CDs) are successful, and squares (K7 and iPods) are failing, yeah that’s totally scientific.

 

Of all the music that exists, anything would have made a better choice (why not Bowie’s ‘Life on Mars’ or the Flaming Lips’ ‘Christmas on Mars’?) than this crappy song.
