Filk, apparently. 

I am a poor Space fairing stranger.
Travelin' from that world below.
There'll be no hunger, toil, or danger
On that bright world to which I go.

Filk, apparently. 

I could probably do this whole song.

Ah hell, I'm starting a space band.

Space folk musing 

Country, blue grass, and hillbilly music is the perfect music for space, because it's the music of the working class, and you bet your ass that space fairing folk will be working class.

I'm might rewrite some folk and gospel songs to be about outerspace and try to talk @DoctorDeathray in to recording some backing parts and vocal accompaniment.

I'm not a vocalist, or a musician.

But I'm going to sing, and play something if I do this.

Space folk musing 

@ajroach42 @DoctorDeathray There's a Jack Vance novella that argues this. Plot summary: to gain entry into the galactic league of civilized species, earth has to send cultural ambassadors to an art contest (or face annihilation - as far as I remember, the stakes were high as they tend to be in this kind of story). The opera singers don't impress the jury, but the crew's jug band does.
