Vote Jimmy for Space Shuttle Wakeup Song

August 23rd, 2010


The space shuttle program is winding down and NASA is giving you the chance to decide what wakeup songs will be played for the final missions.

The wakeup song has been a part of the space program since the days of the Apollo missions. Jimmy Buffett’s music has been played at least three times: “Window on the World” earlier this year, “Oysters and Pearls” in 2008, and “Twelve Volt Man” in 2006.

NASA has chosen 40 previously played wakeup songs (with Jimmy’s “Window on the World” being one of them) and they want you to vote for your favorite. The two songs with the most votes will be played during the STS-133 mission that is scheduled to launch on November 1st.

Go to songcontest.nasa.gov to vote for Jimmy now!

“Window on the World” is currently at #9 with 1,900 votes. The current top two vote-getters are the “Star Trek Theme Song” with 23,000 votes and “Countdown” by Rush with 17,000 votes, so Jimmy needs our help!
