The flight to Mars is going to last 300 days if you are a red collar worker. You might as well take some music suitable for space with you.

Brief introduction

Nothing is more important to Jeff Bezos than Blue Origin.

We are spending too much money in thieves and killers. Maybe we should send at least some of them to Mars. 

This article is for the people interested in space. People interested in a working for Blue Origin or SpaceX for the rest of their lives and maybe one day become astronauts.

If you simply want to find a job or take over your boss' job then we have a very useful website for you. It's called Journal.

All these music videos are suitable for astronauts because they take place in space or the lyrics are about space.

All these music videos are suitable for the people interested in working for Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos because they are the founders and CEOs of the private transportation companies SpaceX and Blue Origin.

Both space companies have contracts with NASA and they are both building spaceships and rockets to deliver cargo and human beings to the International Space Station.

Scream

HIStory: Past, Present, and Future, Book I is the ninth studio album by Michael Jackson released in 1995 by Sony. 

Michael Jackson played many of the instruments.

It was the first song in the 37-year history of Billboard to debut at number five, where it peaked.

The music video directed by Mark Romanek was extremely expensive with a massive budget of $7 million. 

HIStory: Past, Present, and Future, Book I is the best selling double disc album of all time with between 20–30 million copies sold worldwide.

In this music video, Michael Jackson and his sister Janet Jackson are rocking on a spaceship and one day in the near future you will do the same thing.

Larger Than Life

Millenium is the third studio album by the American boy band Backstreet Boys released in 1999 by Jive Records, a subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate Sony.

This studio album is the sixteenth most popular in the decade (1990-1999) according to Billboard.

This studio album entered the Billboard 200 at number one, where it remained for 10 non-consecutive weeks.

1,134,000 copies were sold in its first week of release, breaking the previous Nielsen SoundScan record held by Garth Brooks for single-week record sales.

With more than 40,000,000 copies sold all over the world, this album remains in the position 43 in the list of the 50 best-selling albums of all-time according to NME, a British music journalism magazine published since 1952.

In this music video, the Backstreet Boys are dancing on a spaceship and one day in the near future you will take Tango lessons or Salsa lessons and learn how to move your body to a beat just like them.

Oops!... I Did It Again

Oops!... I Did It Again is the second studio album by American recording artist Britney Spears released in 2000 by Jive Records, a subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate Sony. (NYSE: SNE)

Like many other record labels founded in 1981, the record label was closed on October 7, 2011, and all the assets were transferred to RCA Records, another subsidiary of the previously mentioned conglomerate.

Britney Spears won two Billboard Music Awards: World-Record Breaker of 2000 and Album Artist of 2000.

This album remains as one of the best-selling albums of all-time with more than 20 million copies sold.

This album is the sixth most popular in the decade (2000-2009).

The album is the most popular in the year 2000 with 16.3 million copies sold.

The Oops!... I did it again world tour sold more than $40 million in concert tickets.

Her latest album Glory released in 2016 ended in the position number 172 for the whole year.

This music video was directed by Nigel Dick and was filmed on March 17–18, 2000 in Universal City, California.

Britney Spears herself created the concept for the music video because she wanted to dance on Mars.

The music video was nominated for four MTV Video Music Awards in the Best Female Video, Best Dance Video, Best Pop Video, and the Viewer's Choice categories back in 2000. 

This music video takes place on Mars. Let's hope the Martians look as good as Britney Spears.

Rocket

Siamese Dream is the second studio album by American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins released in 1993 by Virgin Records, a subsidiary of French conglomerate Vivendi. (Euronext: VIV)

Like many other record labels founded in 1972, the record label is still recording albums today within the United States of America.

Their latest album Monuments to an Elegy released in 2014 peaked 33 on the Billboard 200. 

This song charted within the top 30 on the US Active Rock chart back in 1994.

This music video takes place in the near future and one day building a rocket will be as common, as easy, and as fun as building your own cellular network today.

One day, the film The Astronaut Farmer won't be a fantasy anymore. Check it out if you like rockets.

This music video was directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, who would go on to direct many more videos for The Smashing Pumpkins.

This music video was released a very long time ago back in 1993 and I have to believe Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos were positively impacted by The Smashing Pumpkins when they were younger.


ET

Teenage Dream is the third studio album by American singer Katy Perry released in 2010 by Capitol Records, a subsidiary of the Universal Music Group.

Teenage Dream debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, with a total of 192,000 copies sold in its first week.

Katy Perry scored five Billboard Hot 100 number one singles from the album Teenage Dream, making her the second artist in the chart's 53-year history to amass five number-one singles from one album over its first release after Michael Jackson achieved the same thing back in 1987 with his album Bad.

In this music video, Katy Perry plays the role of an alien.    

Katy Perry wrote the song herself in association with her producers Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Ammo.

Lyrically, the song speaks of falling in love with a foreigner, according to Katy Perry.

This was the fourth biggest song of 2011 with more than six million digital downloads sold worldwide.

This music video was directed by Italian photographer and director Floria Sigismondi.

Spaceman

The song "Spaceman" is the first single from the debut studio album The Boy with the X-Ray Eyes by the British band Babylon Zoo released back in 1996 by EMI.

This song became the fastest selling single in the United Kingdom in over thirty years since The Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love".

In fact, more than 420,000 copies of the single were sold in the first week alone.

This song also reached the top of the charts in 23 countries.

Eventually, more than 1.14 million people in the United Kingdom acquired this song. 

This song remains to this day in the history books as one of the best-selling singles of all time in the United Kingdom according to The Guardian, a very respected newspaper in the United Kingdom founded in 1821.

I selected this song for this list of music videos about spacemen working for SpaceX's Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos's Blue Origin because the song is called "Spaceman" and also because the music video features a few aliens presumably coming from another planet.

This song was chosen by Channel 4, a very popular television network in the United Kingdom for their list of 50 best songs by one-hit wonders back in 2006.

MTV UK placed this song as the #24 single of the 1990s.

This song was used for marketing purposes back in 2006 with the release of the British comedy film with elements of science fiction Alien Autopsy.

We are all made of stars

The song "We are all made of stars" is the first single from the sixth studio album 18 released by American electronica musician Moby back in 2002.

This album was also released by the record company EMI.

This song peaked at number eleven on the UK singles charts.

Six years later, the song was included in the album Songs for Tibet: The Art of Peace

This album supports Tibet and went all the way to the top of the Rock charts at the time in the United States of America, France, Canada, Italy, and the Netherlands.

I selected this song for this list of music videos about spacemen working for SpaceX's Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos's Blue Origin because the song is called "We are all made of stars" and also because the music video features an astronaut presumably coming from the future or perhaps from a parallel universe or simply from another planet. 

I guess we'll never know for sure.

In case you failed your cosmology class, here is a brief explanation of how the universe works.

A star like our Sun eventually explodes and dies and the trillion small pieces are scattered all over the empty space and travel for very long periods of time.

In some cases for millions of years, until eventually they are lured near another star and they begin to orbit this star until they eventually become a planet.

This may be a hot planet like Mercury if they are too close to a star or this may be a cold planet like Pluto if they are too far from a star. In both cases, there is no extraterrestrial life.

If the planet is located exactly at the right distance then life eventually appears. Not too hot to burn everything and not too cold to freeze everything to death. Just exactly right like Earth.

Everything inside this blue planet was once part of a star. Therefore "We are all made of stars" according to Moby.
