4 -   That Crazy Place in Outer Space       Annette Funicello       1958
5 -    Sputnik Rock and Roll         Rock-Krister and His Cristals      1958
6 -   Right Here On Earth     Gene Vincent 1959

24 - Flying Saucer Baby The Slingshots 2008
25 - Two Planets Bat For Lashes 2009
26 - The Thrills That Come Along With the Landing of a Flying Saucer DeWolff 2009


Track 3 was the B-side of some of the releases of Helms' OTHER Christmas song, a little ditty called "Jingle Bell Rock."  I think it's more fun than the A-side!

I hope you have fun rocking and cringing alternately.

Zing! into orbit!

See you Monday.
