Zoetrope Episode 9: Astronaut Wake-Ups

Written by on February 23, 2018

Rise and shine, campers! This episode features only songs used to wake up astronauts. Waking astronauts with music is a long tradition (inasmuch as anything related to space travel can be considered a long tradition), so I had a lot of songs to choose from. You can check out the list I used for reference here. Also, did you know there’s an all-astronaut band called Max Q? As if being just an astronaut wasn’t cool enough already.
