Planet for Sale
Planet for Sale's best known single and LP was called "Hovering Over Trauma," otherwise known as "H.O.T.", which later became the theme song for Billy Sugoi's 2035 award-winning film, Dance of the Celestial Bodies, starring Duran Duran Murasaki, the former darling of Japanese indie cinema now in her 40's. The film's premise is eerily prophetic: a series of comets are heading towards Earth, forcing humans to relocate to the Sea of Tranquility on the moon. "H.O.T.," was not only an obvious allusion to global warming (which was once denied by climate skeptics in the early 2010's until Millenials became the dominant political demographic), but was also an ironic reference to the emotionally complex goodbye that the last human crew said after they'd abandoned earth forever. The song played just as the final colonists had left the earth's atmosphere and were gliding through space in their shuttles, watching their beautiful, heartbreaking, and lonely planet through their windows one final time.
