My friend Marian Call is a bona fide geek. She is also a velvet-throated songstress, a singer-songwriter who frequently uses nerdery as inspiration.
One of my favorite songs by her is “Good Morning Moon” from her album “Something Fierce”. It’s a tribute to astronauts on the International Space Station, and a wonderful song… and now it’s also a wonderful video! Filmed at Space Expo in Noordwijk, and featuring NASA footage from space, here is Marian Call…IN SPACE*.
If you like this song, then check out the album. You can hear the song for free at Bandcamp, or download it for a buck. Marian doesn’t have a label, but instead is strongly independent, thriving on fan support. If you’re a fan, please support her.
*OK, not really. But it does look like she’s floating.
