This song was originally written and recorded by Klaatu in 1976 for World Contact Day, "whereby, at a predetermined date and time, [earthlings] would attempt to collectively send out a telepathic message to visitors from outer space". The Carpenters' more famous version came out a year later, and the World Contact Day idea never really took hold. Wow. Got any weirdness you want to share tonight?
