When EK was growing up, I did my best to play good music - The Beatles, Pet Shop Boys*, Wilco, etc**. But I never played Styx, who were huge when I was growing up. I didn't realize that they were still around for decades! Unbeknownst to me, EK discovered them and is a fan of their 2015 concept album about a mission to Mars.

I thought of them again yesterday when I saw Neil deGrasse Tyson said Come Sail Away (about alien abduction!) would be his one song. 👍

*Ach! I've never blogged about Pet Shop Boys!

**That is such a white, Midwest, middle-class list!
