5 Songs That Are Just Fucking Weird

  • Chris Cote

5 Songs Rooted in Weirdness

Aliens, ghosts, and conspiracy theories oh my! There are many songs that have underlying tones of weirdness, probably more songs than you think. For this list, we’re going with songs that deal with close encounters of the alien kind.

 

Yeah Yeah Yeahs “Area 52”

Who knew Karen O was a total alien freakazoid? Well, this song proves she’s all about meeting a visitor from outer space and even being enslaved by them! In this song, she literally begs for it: I wanna be your passenger/Take me as your prisoner
I want to be an alien/Take me please oh alien
.

 

Travis “Side”

We would have had no idea that this song is rooted in the bizarre if it weren’t for this epic video featuring images of UFOs, crop circles (made by a motorcycle), stargazing teens searching for intelligent life in space, and then, the payoff, a full blown alien space party where then band gets beamed up and whisked off to who knows where. Good song, great video.

 

Blink 182 “Aliens Exist”

Tom DeLonge is an outspoken believer and even though this song is tongue-in-cheek and sounds kind of silly these days, Tom is serious when he says “Aliens Exist” and will shout it from the rooftops to anyone will listen. In fact, some of the money he made off this song and album is going in to funding a documentary about this very subject matter.

 

Blondie “Rapture”

Although the video begins with a guy in a white tux acting rather alien-like, the songs itself starts out as a seemingly sexy disco styled track about sexuality and partying—then Debbie Harry starts to rap about a “man from Mars eating bars, cars, and basically destroying the world, even eating all the world’s guitars—oh shit!" Anyway, this was actually the first rap ever heard on MTV (Rapture was released in 1981). Trippy.

 

David Bowie “Starman”

David Bowie is a spaceman, this we all know. This song, “Starman” talks about Bowie listening to radio, hearing some “hazy cosmic jive”, realizing “there’s a Starman waiting in the sky”. Bowie goes on the explain the Starman just wants the kids to dance, and he’d like to meet the kids, but the kids would freak the fuck out, so he just has to stay in the sky. Far out.
