Πάντα θεωρούσα αυτό το τραγούδι των B-52’s ελαφρώς …απειλητικό, παρά το στοιχείο του χιούμορ για το οποίο μιλούσαν όλοι. Το φανταζόμουν πάντα σε νυχτερινό φόντο, αλλά και το βίντεο “εποχής”, που μόλις ανακάλυψα, έχει την πλάκα του.

I always thought about this B-52’s song being a little …sinister, despite the humorous element about which everyone talked about. I always imagined it on a nightly background, but the video which I just discovered is enjoyable in its own way.


❝ She came from Planet Claire
I knew she came from there
She drove a Plymouth Satellite
A-faster than the speed of light
Planet Claire has pink air
All the trees are red
No one ever dies there
No one has a head
Some say she’s from Mars
Or one of the seven stars that shine after three-thirty in the morning
Well, she isn’t!
She came from Planet Claire
She came from Planet Claire
She came from Planet Claire ❞

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
