It's Tuesday! Time for another round of "Top 5 Must-Hear Pop Songs of the Week"!
Guess what? We're on Mars, y'all! That's right: This week, NASA successfully landed their latest Mars rover, Curiosity, which is now merrily scooting its way across the surface of Mars taking photos of the planet and... uh, I don't know, putting them on Instagram, I think. To celebrate, here are flaw-free space jams in honor of our little robot friend who's far, far, far away from home!
1.) Britney Spears, "I'm So Curious"
Any proper Britney Spears devotee knows that our Holy Lady of Frappes had already been exploring extraterrestrial life well over 10 years ago, when she was whipping her hair in a red latex suit and being gifted diamonds by eager astronauts. Still, to honor our robot friend's smooth landing onto Mars, I've selected a song perfect for the occasion: "I'm So Curious"! "I'm so curious/ do you love me," the pop-princess-turned-Queen of Pop croons on the sugary-sweet "Sometimes" B-side. She wasn't even 18 years old at the time, yet the Holy Spear-it was already setting her sights on going galactic (and predicting this very space mission, because she is Nostradam-ney.) If only NASA were wise enough to pipe this track into space via Curiosity, any form of intelligent life would come bounding out from behind the rocks they're hiding and start lip-synching for their alien life. Oh well, maybe next time.
