Klaatu: Parts III, II & I (Acoustic Version)

from by The Stan Laurels



Let the misadventures and shenanigans begin ...


Part III - Inside Klaatu: I am lost; I can't scream; I forgot how to dream. Blackness seeps into my veins; cold hate creeps within my brain.

Part II - Taken: I want you to remind me that if my body ever leaves the ground like this, then something's probably amiss, because this gravity thing is pretty strong and it always keeps me grounded; I can't get around it. But somehow I'm high in the sky, and I don't know why, but I get the feeling I'll be gone for a long time. So please go see my wife and child and tell them that I love them, and I guess you'd better tell them good-bye ... good-bye ... good-bye ...

Part I - Pleased to Make Your Acquaintance: A man came up to me and said, "I'd like to buy your planet, kind sir." I said, "It's not mine to sell, but you're welcome to stay." He said, "That's OK -- I don't like doing business anyway. I'll just go ahead and take it from you, if that's all right with you."

The music is the scientifically engineered combination of everything and nothing you’ve ever heard. ... more
