Happy 50th Birthday, Telstar!
To mark the launching of the satellite ‘Telstar’, the band The Tornadoes released this song, which quickly became the first Number 1 Single, both here and across the Atlantic, with no vocals.
I’ve always loved this song, and this was before I realised the links it has to Muse, too! It just so happens that Matt Bellamy’s dad, George, is the rhythm guitarist, and Muse have specific influence from this song in Knights Of Cydonia.
The more you know!
