My girls in Abu Dhabi loved this song and the cup routine that went with it. Little did they know that it was an old Carter Family song that I was familiar with from childhood. Because I was leaving that year to return home and the girls were going on to the middle school, it kinda became our theme song. It’s going to bring tears to my eyes for a long time.

Uncle Cracker covered this song, but I have always felt that the Dobie Gray original is far superior. While it doesn’t have anything directly to do with Satellite of Love, it is responsible in a way for the entire series because this is how I have always felt about music. I don’t want Calgon to take me away because music does the job so much better.

Interestingly, legend has it that the song was offered to Elvis, but when he hear the Dobie Gray recording he turned it down because he didn’t think he could do a better version. Elvis, people.

“Ghost Riders In the Sky” by Johnny Cash. This song had a great deal to do with the development of my imagination. Between this and the original Star Trek series, it’s not wonder I’m as twisted as I am.
