For this installment of Your Favorite Band, Astra Elane from Atomic Bride goes on a space journey in her mind with Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood.
Hot steam jetted out of the polished chrome pipes of the young girl’s ship as she braced herself for lift off. She was told that her destination, The Earth, was only a day away by cosmicar. In the time it took her to travel there from her home planet, she could catch up on her reading, write a poem or two, practice her singing and maybe even paint a picture of the stars that dashed by her tiny window. How exciting to be on her own! The anticipations of a shiny new world swam through her head and the ship disappeared into the sky like a big red balloon.
She daydreamed. All her life she only heard tales of blue skies and golden meadows. Soon, in just a day’s time, she would see it all with her own eyes. Her imagination inspired her to write, and for the next hour she versed a magnificent song that she would one day bestow upon a special man that she did not yet know. She thought she was too elated to nap, but eager to dream, the reverie of it all lured her to sleep. As the girl drifted off she imagined a dashing man gazing deep into her eyes. She saw him take her hand and softly murmured words that she could not understand. She could not see his face, only the shadow of a tall, dark silhouette.
