Tune Time – Why Can’t We Be Friends?

This popular song by the band ‘War’ was played in space when NASA beamed it to the linking of Soviet cosmonauts and U.S. astronauts in 1975. It’s also been featured in a number of Hollywood films and TV commercials. It charted at number six in 1975.


  1. A perfect song to have beamed up - I've never understood the "space race" - we'd have accomplished a lot more by now if we'd all worked together towards a common goal.

    1. I totally agree. If only we'd get our act together all around the world.
