''Spaceman'' (1996)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Babylon Zoo; Genre: Pop

The fastest-selling debut single in U.K. history, babylon Zoo's ''Spaceman'' boasts Martian-munchkin squeaking and a high-pitched chorus that makes its futuristic kitsch both funny and seductive. Babbling about Christ and carousels is nonsense, but occupants of interplanetary craft with a sense of humor might respond regardless.
