Astronaut and Barenaked Ladies sing together

Members of the Barenaked Ladies performed their song 'I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing)' over a video-link with Chris Hadfield, who is on the International Space Station:

Watch the video above as astronaut Chris Hadfield, from aboard the International Space Station, performs "I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing)" with Ed Robertson, the rest of the Barenaked Ladies and the Wexford Gleeks from Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts, who were all at the CBC studios in Toronto.

The song, which was written by Hadfield and Robertson in partnership with Music Monday, CBC Music and the Canadian Space Agency, explores what it's like to look down on the Earth from outer space. It will also be the official song for the 2013 edition of Music Monday, which takes place on May 6.

  1. seriously, if you don’t follow hadfield on twitter (@Cmdr_Hadfield), do. i can’t believe how busy he must be in general with all his ISS duties, but then he keeps posting amazing photos and doing things like chatting with WFS and doing things like this. AND he seems like just a really cool, down-to-earth (heh) guy.

  2. Commander Hadfield, you are doing us all fucking proud. If anyone has any Jubilee Medals left, yours is well beyond a worthy neck to bear one.
