I'm doing an alien theme for one of my rooms and would like to have all the songs playing be about aliens. Which means I need to start gathering NOW if I want about 6 hours worth!

So far I have:

Blue by Eifel 65 (alien in music video)

My Alien by Simple Plan

Aliens Exist by Blink 182

the X-Files theme

Smooth Criminal by Alien Ant Farm (has alien in the name of the group... this only works because Alien Ant Farm is a well-known group with my friends)

Any suggestions?

Here's the first couple that popped into mind:
Blondie - Rapture
Flying Purple People Eater

"I'm A Stranger Here" 5 Man Electrical Band
A couple of 'almost about aliens songs but sound like they would fit in' - "Calling Occupants" by Klaatu(also covered by the Carpenters?!?) and "Little Neutrino", also by Klaatu, from their first album, there is another song about a creature from Uranus on the album, I won't say what the title is here, you may not want to have it playing......, another less obvious(obscure) would be "Watcher of the Skies" by Genesis. Most of these are very spacey progressive rock, some of my musical influences.

Good call on the classic Genesis. I'm a big fan.

Now, as far as aliens...
Martian Hop -- The Randells
Creature With the Atom Brain -- Roky Erickson
The Blob -- The 5 Blobs
Come Sail Away -- Styx
Starship Trooper -- Yes
Starman -- David Bowie

This one has been associated with Christmas but hey, "A Space Man Came Travelling" by Chris De Burgh.

I have several suggestions, in a broad spectrum of styles.

First, how about the soundtrack from the movie "The Fourth Kind". There are no vocals, but it would be great ambient music.

Some other songs:

"I, Robot"- by Alan Parsons Project
"Planet Claire"- by the B-52's
"Drops Of Jupiter"- by Train
"Iron Man"- by Black Sabbath
"Cygnus X-1"- by Rush
"Space Age Love Song"- by Flock Of Seagulls
"Under The Milky Way"- by The Church
"Spaced"- by Aerosmith
"2000 Light Years From Home"- by The Rolling Stones
"Space Oddity"- by David Bowie
"Major Tom (Coming Home)- by Peter Shilling
"Interstellar Overdrive"- by Pink Floyd
"Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun"- by Pink Floyd
"On The Run"- by Pink Floyd

And on the lighter side:

"Martian Boogie"- by Brownsville Station
"They're Here"- by Boots Walker
"Star Trekkin'"- by The Firm
"Attack Of The Radioactive Hamsters From A Planet Near Mars"- by Weird Al Yankovich
"I'm The Urban Spaceman"- by The Bonzo Dog Band

That's all I can recall for now. If anything else comes to mind, I'll let you know.

I was once going to make a haunted room here that would be a small recording studio with Yoko in it screeching!
Probably just way too scary! You know it's obnoxious when the smoke alarms go off in self-defense!
"Forget smoke OR fire! They are now doing double-duty,as Yoko alarms!
