Where would we be without one of the strangest funk/prog/psychadelia acts of the 70s? Parliament (And/or) Funkadelic. Here they are singing one of their more overtly SF-related songs:

Ah, but is it SF? Well, yeah, I think so. It's all about the whole von Danikin Ancient Astronauts nonsense, and Sun Ra's weird life story. Check out these lyrics:

Doin' it up on the Chocolate Milky Way

What's up CC? Have you forgot me?

Are you hip to Easter Island? The Bermuda Triangle?

Heh heh! Well, all right. Ain't nothing but a party!

I frackin' *LOVE* this song! It's second theme song from the "Macross Frontier" anime in Japan, and actually peaked at #3 on the Japanese charts. I caution you that there's a very brief animated naked butt-shot in the video, but aside from that it's safe for work. I assume. I don't speak Japanese, so they could be singing horrible things, but I doubt it.
