All the talk about Pluto no longer being classified as a planet reminded me Lou Reed's song "Satellite of Love" with its wistful background vocals (that's Bowie's voice in there). Even though it is in fact a song about jealousy, I never paid much attention to that. It just made me think about yearning, about how we are here on earth but sometimes some scientific image of space can send our imaginations flying through the solar system out into the universe. Then I remembered Breakfast on Pluto, a film by Neal Jordan. It's about someone who insists on choosing his own name, and the title comes from a song as well: "We'll fly to the stars, journey to Mars, and have our breakfast on Pluto." In the film, the song stands for Kitten's utter commitment to being who she is, in spite of how hard the world tries to make her be Patrick.
I looked for a video of Lou Reed performing "Satellite of Love" but couldn't find one. These are the two versions I found instead:
satellite of pook has the original music and is somewhat unearthly,
and a remix version--somewhat obnoxious, but I like the video!
