Spaceman by Babylon Zoo.

I found this on a list of the best 90’s songs and I’m surprised I didn’t know it since I recognized almost every other track mentioned. I decided to do some research and use it for today’s entry.

Babylon Zoo formed in 1992 in Wolverhampton, England. Spaceman was released on January 21, 1996 from the album, The Boy with the X-Ray Eyes.  They were only successful in the UK which is why I didn’t know them. The single made #1 on UK charts and the album made #6. It also sold 418,000 copies the first week of its release, which was a record at the time.

The band released one more album in 1999 before breaking up in 2000. See the official video above. The music kinda reminds me of Marilyn Manson’s style.
