Pluto Rocks

Being sick is a real drag, especially when it leaves you too physically and mentally weak to do much more than lie on the couch and wonder whether it’s possible to create a playlist of good songs with planets for titles.

Sometime during my fevered haze I started playing around on the ol’ laptop searching for any tunes other than Holst’s The Planets that drew inspiration from the solar system.

Now, I know Pluto’s no longer a planet. But who could resist this:

Best. Planet puppet. Ever. Thank you, Clare and the Reasons, for giving the world’s favorite dwarf planet such a delightfully trippy lullaby.

I’ve got a voyage to the Big Island coming up, so I think my next search will be for a song about Haumea
