I couldn't help but think of one of the poems Stephen Cain read at last night's Lex as a mashup of Goodnight Moon (accurate) and Sun Ra's "Nuclear War" (this part is the product of my addled brain):
Originally Ra was so sure the funky dance track was a hit, he immediately took it to Columbia Records, where they immediately rejected it. Why he thought a song with the repeating chant "Nuclear War, they're talking about Nuclear War/It's a motherf***er, don't you know/if they push that button, your ass gotta go/and whatcha gonna do without your ass" would be a hit is another puzzle in the Sun Ra myth.
