Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: ISS (Is Somebody Singing?)

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

David Bowie wrote a song about being in space. Now from the collectives pens of Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies, and Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, comes this number they wrote and perform together, only Robertson is on the ground, and Hadfield is "up there" somewhere at the International Space Station. They are joined by the Wexford Gleeks from Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts, who were all (except for Hadfield) at the CBC studios in Toronto.

Download the lyrics, and read the story "behind the music" here.
