Jim tells us, this week the theme is Heavenly Bodies, Planets, Moon, Sun, Stars suggested by King Ben’s Grandma. Oh the places we could go. I immediately thought of Children of the Sun by Billy Thorpe. I even broke my own rule of no song over 5 minutes long. My freshman year, we played this song on a loop. Later when I was at SAC and they had a contest to pick intro music for the remodeled Planetarium, my Astronomy class nominated this song. It didn’t win but it’s still a favorite to me.
People of the Earth can you hear me? Came a voice from the sky on that magical night And in the colors of a thousand sunsets They traveled through the world on a silvery light The people of the Earth stood waiting Watching as the ships came one by one Setting fire to the sky as they landed Carrying to the world Children Of The Sun All at once came a sound from the inside Then a beam made of light hit the ground Everyone felt the sound of their heartbeat Every Man - Every Woman - Every Child They passed the limits of imagination Through the doors - to a world - of another time On the journey of a thousand lifetimes With the Children Of The Sun - They started their climb No more gravity, nothing holding them down Floating endlessly, as their ship leaves the ground through the walls of time - at the speed of light Fly the crystal ships on their celestial flight On their celestial flight.
