Starlight Children’s Chorus: E.T., I Love You & Other Extra-Terrestrial Songs For Children


With all the spin-off merchandise that comes with the success of a major motion picture, there’s bound to be some schlocky knockoff, and this is one of the weirdest ones I’ve ever seen. The title song, “E.T., I Love You“, one of two listenable and entertaining tracks on this record, was actually written by Buckner & Garcia (of “Pac-Man Fever” fame). After contacting Mr. Garcia to track down their version, I found out they had no knowledge of the existence of this record, or the cover of their song, cementing it as a serious grey-area copycat.

The other stand out track is an upbeat dancey number called “So Near And Yet So Far“, with a surprisingly catchy chorus that could easily find a place on my next mix tape. The remainder of the songs are completely forgettable and totally not worth your time, unless perhaps, you’re 10 years old and in love with an alien.

I don’t believe for a second that there are any real-life children involved in the Starlight Children’s Chorus. The vocals all sound like they’re sung by a female trying to sound like a young boy, and some of the vocalizations are suspiciously mature sounding to have been sung by a kid. Many of the lyrics have an almost creepy/obsessed/romantic tone to them, like a desperate, psychotic ex- wishing to be alone on a deserted island with you, forever. The album as a whole has the vibe of something done with it’s heart in the right place, but with execution wide of the mark. I don’t think I can ever watch E.T. again without feeling kind of creeped out on some level because of this record. Bad touch.

  • I have an atari ‘asteroids’ lp on the same label, its a spoken word lp with a few songs, its good but purely for sentimental reasons. Has any one else got any computer game related lp’s on this label? I think they did a few.

  • That is some crazy cash-in action there! Facemelt indeed.

  • Speaking of ETploitation, have you heard the electro-dance number ‘E.T. (Every Time)’ by The Little Dabs? I wonder how many more ET songs there were… probably lots!

    here is the link to another e.t. inspired gem. this is an 8 minute track that begins with some surprisingly decent jazz-fusion, spaced-out keyboards included. after a 2 minute intergalactic freak-out, the disco funk kicks in, e.t. speaks up, and then children from various countries around the world respond. a truly bizarre track… if anyone knows the origin

  • oh my god mandru. that is unreal. sometimes i have a hard time comprehending the fact that people actually make this stuff. like, who thinks like that? who thinks this is a good idea?
