In keeping with last week’s posts, here’s a bit of Mars-related pop culture. It’s the incomparable Gene Vincent singing about how he’d like to get you (if you’re a girl, that is) on a spaceship to the Red Planet. He reportedly hated the song, but he looks great in white leather, a break from his trademark black. (If you’re wondering about Vincent’s unique stance behind the microphone, it’s due in part to the heavy brace he wore on his left leg, which was severely injured in a 1955 motorcycle accident.)
