10. Bon Jovi - Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen from Mars
Horrible Bon Jovi naffness. Cool title.
9. Mylo - Mars Needs Women
He doesn't specify what they're needed for, so apply with caution.
8. The Undertones - Mars Bars
Purveyors of Teenage Kicks raid the Spar.
7. T. Rex - Ballrooms of Mars
Look, it's that guy Bolan again, not satisfied with having the inaugural Tuesday Tunes all to himself...
6. Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Death of a Martian
There are better Chilli Peppers songs, but not about Martians.
5. Hawkwind - Uncle Sam's on Mars
I suspect these psychadelic space rock pioneers may show up here again in the future...
4. Alice Cooper - Might as well be on Mars
Seven whole minutes of gloriously moody rock greatness! And apparently he's a Christian too.
3. MARRS - Pump up the Volume
What? You want to make up the rules, do it on your own blog!
2. The Misfits - Teenagers from Mars
Horror punk lunacy, not for the faint-hearted (and some sweary lyrics). Less good is I Turned into a Martian.
1. Ash - Girl from Mars
The absolute all-time best ever song ever with Mars in the title. And the B-side was a fantastically jangly indie-guitar instrumental number by the name of Cantina Band. Credited to someone called John Williams. I'm not sure where I've heard it before, but it rocks! :)
Honorable mention for Blondie's Rapture, for the mental rap about the man from Mars who 'stopped eatin' cars and eatin' bars / And now he only eats guitars'.
Yes, alright, I know I missed one. But it was the first song you all thought of, so I hardly needed to bring it to your attention did I?
Oh yes, and don't forget to buy The Return, or another book by Austin Boyd.
