British singer Peter Gabriel got a brief serenade from a member of the International Space Station crew on Wednesday during a visit to Mission Control in Houston.
Canadian Chris Hadfield, Expedition 34's flight engineer, strummed a few chords of Gabriel's hit "In Your Eyes" during a nearly 12-minute chat with Gabriel and his family.
Hadfield told Gabriel that he recorded two songs in space. The first, co-written with his brother, is a "space Christmas carol" called "Jewel in the Night." The second, a space-to-Earth collaboration with Canadian band Barenaked Ladies, is called "I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing)."

If I were on the ISS, I'd be happy he didn't play a song off the "Intruder" album, like "No Self Control." LOL. Scientists like Gabriel. I think that's cool. I bet the neoteapartycons hate it (they probably think Nugent is a great songwriter/lyricist – the ignorant boobs!). That makes it all the more cool. # of TP supporters on the ISS: ZERO! After all, according to Republicans, people don't need college degrees, or science, or brains (lest they use them and vote Democratic). GOP + TP = "Dumb and Dumber."
hate much? shut up D B ignoramus
dñt worry b happy

This is it...Really...NASA has nothing better to do? I mean we've beamed the Mona Lisa to the Moon. We've broadcasted some guys song from Mars. And now we get a amateur rock concert? What happened to having a REAL Mission for NASA? Oh yeah I forgot an American public that frankly can't understand space, and politicians......
A little light entertainment Wolf, come on lighten up!
These people are on the ISS for long periods of time. They don't get to see humans aside from each other or a video monitor. I don't see a problem with taking 10 minutes out of their time to relax, do you?
Wow. Let's give him the Interstellar Uber Grammy.
Fake. There is no sound in space...
