3:27 for elevator music fans
This album has some of the best production values ever - headphone earcandy, deep with layers of subliminal touches like a good George Martin album. Been enjoyng it for almost 40 years.
Written by Terry Draper and John Woloschuk from Klaatu. How anybody can say its a version ??, this is the original. The Carpenters did a cover version.
i love karen , but klaatu's where its at.

Quien aqui gracias a david parcerisa
I don't care who Klaatu sound like, this song is an absolute classic which has stood the test of time, great arrangement, and top class musicianship all round, personally I love it !

I’m here because of Mindhunter .... are you??
heard this on the new American Horror Story season...
Monca Rodriguez
heard this on Netflix's Mindhunter 😊

Many people believe this is the Beatles, but it was recorded at a time when Paul was dead, so it can't be the Beatles. The proof is that this song was covered by the Carpenters and Paul was never a carpenter, so therefore he must've been dead. Hope that clears up the whole conspiracy thing ...
Nick Lanni
I wish there was more of the section around 3:25
I can see the Flaming Lips covering this.

How anyone could have thought this was the Beatles is unbelievable. Sounds NOTHING like them.
Ernest Sauter
This track could have fit very comfortably on magical mystery tour
Lucas Seman
Wow!  This sounds just like Klaatu!!
John Conway
This is a musical masterpiece but the perfect vehicle for the song was the voice of Karen Carpenter. Due credit in equal measure to Klaatu for composing it and to the Carpenters for it's brilliant arrangement and interpretation. Karen had a way of taking other people's songs and making them uniquely her own.

This song hit the US during the peak of 1970’s Beatlemania and djs weren’t shy about playing up the hoax that this was the Beatles undercover. You had to be there to understand. What really helped was the “Day In The Life” piano at 3:25 and B-side of Abbey Road motifs through to 4:10, a great Ringo-like backbeat throughout, and the “do come, we beg you” line which does sound a bit like John. It also embodies the feeling up hope that the Beatles could inspire. Plus, it’s just a damn good song.
Joseph Savoia
This was so well placed in Mindhunter!
At 4:37, I know he's supposed to be saying, "And transmit thought energy...", but all I hear is "And transmit fart energy....".
Kirk Cekada
I always liked the Carpenters version, but I like this equally well -- especially for the faux Beatles sound. Underrated song!
Fuz Capp
Can't be the Beatles - the drumming's too good ...
Mindhunter brought me here. Of course, when I come here and find a shitload of great music lovers that, like me, heard just 30 seconds of an unfamiliar but great melody and felt compelled to find this song. Y'all are nice company with taste.
I kind of want a Tool cover of this...
In 1976 a rumor started circulating in the United States that the Beatles had recorded and released a new album under the pseudonym of "Klaatu" and sales of that record shot way up. What were the clues that made people think that THIS album was the Beatles? 1. The record was on Capitol records, the American record company that had released most of the Beatles' records in the US. 2. The record had no names of band members listed on it anywhere. 3. The record had no producer name on it anywhere. It simply said, "Produced by Klaatu." 4. The record had no songwriter credits other than simply, "All selections composed by Klaatu."

Bought this 8 track back in 1976, someone told me that the Beatles had gotten back together and formed a new band....not true but great 8 track just the same..(still got it, anybody got something to play it on?)
Even though there is no evidence of any sort of extraterrestrial life, I love this song for its Beatles-esque form and message.
jimi jammz
I still blow away my neighbors with this...
3:27 when the song started to pick up then it died back off. They could've kept that through the whole song because it's sounds very haunting

Only a landing would teach them....I can't tell you how long I've prayed to see the day when we are formally visited.  That would shut up every hot aired politician in the world, every religious group.  It would certainly give the people of earth a VERY different perspective of life.  But, if the aliens ARE more superior, they're probably :"Observing our Earth" and thinking, Hell no, I'm not getting near that twisted, backward, confrontation loving planet.  Who can blame them for not visiting.

First heard this track way back in 1976 on radio Caroline when I was 17 loved it then still love it 41 years later wouldn't wipe my arse with the carpenters cover!
Both this, and the Carpenters versions are great. It's a shame that Klaatu's version isn't well known.
Lyrics In your mind you have capacities you know To telepath messages through the vast unknown Please close your eyes and concertrate With every thought you think Upon the reciation we're about to sing Calling occupants of interplanetary craft Calling occupants of interplanetary most extraordinary craft (*)Calling occupants of interplanetary craft Calling occupants of interplanetary craft Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft You've been observing our earth And we'd like to make a contact with you We are your friends Calling occupants of interplanetary craft Calling occupants of interplanetary ultra-emissaries We've been observing your earth And one night we'll make a contact with you We are your friends Calling occupants of interplanetary quite extraordinary craft And please come in peace, we beseech you Only a landing will teach them Our earth may never survive So do come, we beg you Please interstellar policeman Oh won't you give us a sign Give us a sign that we've reached you With your mind you have ability to form And transmit thought energy far beyond the norm You close your eyes, you concentrate Together that's the way To send the message We declare world contact day [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Contact_Day ] Repeat (*) Calling occupants Calling occupants Calling occupants of interplanetary, anti-adversary craft We are your friends
I would like to hear Ghost cover this.
zee bee
i don't care who Klaatu is either- seriously trippy! in a good way!
Everyone saying they found this in a Netflix show but I’m here because I just watch The Day The Earth Stood Still, where the main character is named Klaatu.

I am convinced that three obscure Canadian session musicians received expert tuition from four very famous gentlemen who began life in the Cavern Club, Liverpool. Remember John Lennon's comment in his famous 1975 Whistle Test interview about "jamming together". Klaatu? I'm not convinced he was completely inactive between 1975 and 1980.
Liam Sorrell
Parts of it sound like Hey Bulldog, Strawberry Fields, and I am the Walrus.
I really like the Carpenters version but this is way more outstanding.
Douglas Ankenman
this song is amazing but makes me slightly uncomfortable for some reason...
Mmmm Butt
Karen’s version is good, but this is much better. The vocals and prog rock feel make it amazing!
03:26 is like I Am the Walrus... or Day in the Life.
Peter Flynn
when I was 16, the first album came out. They didn't put the names of the performers anywhere on the album. The first hit "sub rosa  subway" sounded like The Beatles. In fact that's what the media was saying. People were wondering if The Beatles had got back together. Their anonymity helped greatly in album sales. Later it was found to be a group of Canadian musicians that formed the band.
Daniel Marques
Close your eyes and imagine THE BEATLES playing this is the music ...
daniel briggs
There was an alien message that interupeted a news bulliten in 1977, they might have heard this song.
On all occasions, due respect should be given to the originators of any material, regardless of how well covered it might have been in the future. Hats off to Klaato and the Carpenters.
I can't stop listening to this. It's awesome!
Great Song OMFG!!!! Definitely going on my karaoke List lol
Simon Mercs
My youth....this was my first true experience with something unexpected.......and whether the Beatles were there or not...wondrous.....

9-12-18, the song made it to American Horror Story! Hahaha. I bought the album when it first came out in the late 70's. I still have it.
Michael Eamon Osborne
This came out in 76 & Karen's version came out a year later. I remember both versions. Both are equally good in their own right. I wonder why Karen chose to sing this one?
Blanca Torres
I love The Carpenters but Klaatu's version is the best
I’m here because my dad played this song in the car and I asked him what it was called because I liked it. Ya’ll came from Netflix? PSHHH.
Jaime ledezma
Ah, y que muera el regeaton, la música grupera y los narcocorridos!! Grrrr.

Discovered this band by using Google to double check my spelling of "'Klaatu", the main character in the classic Sci-Fi film "The Day The Earth Stood Still" from 1951 so I decided to give them a listen..
Gabe van hoek
This rapper uses this song for a beat and part of the lyrics in the opening. Can anyone for the love of God please help me find that version?
Eijoo Pere Canin
this is the original..Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft" is a song by Klaatu, originally released in 1976 on their first album 3:47 EST. The song would open night transmission of the pirate radio station Radio Caroline. The year following its release, the Carpenters covered the song, using a crew of 160 musicians. The Carpenters version reached the top 10 in the UK and Canada.
Capt. B Dick
LIstened to both.. This one is more psychedelic, but Karen Carpenters voice is superior and the sound is "clearer" ? It really just comes down to ones preference.
Robert Barton
Kudos to the original without there would be no covers no matter the opinion of which is better
William Jordan
Klaatu were rumored to be the Beatles in disguise when this came out.
There is more to the story that these were supposed to be the Beatles. Ringo put out album with Klaatu on the cover.
jaime pons
Gracias por la recomendación David Parcerisa. Saludos Amigo!
When Klaatu first appeared, rumor was they were the Beatles using an alias.
Jose Luis Gallego
Ignacio Gratz
So this is the band conected with ufo's and the Beatles, interesting
just heard this for the first time on Mindhunter.....and I was like 'wow, like this.....sounds a bit like The Flaming Lips' I would have never guessed it was from the 70's as the version on the show seems defo re-mastered......
Johann Daart
I want more music like 3:37 fragment... Oh pleaaase interstellar DJ guide me to it... Only my love I will give you... My mind may never survive...

Funny people saying the carpenters version was better. Klaatu wrote it. They were from Toronto.

It's been a long time for me, but wasn't there once a rumor that Klaatu was actually the Beatles?

Of course the rumor was that this was actually The Beatles but I've heard it was Canadian session musicians.  Klaatu probably started the Beatles rumor themselves.  Great song BTW.
Ken W
Klaatu was a Canadian band BTW. Klaatu was also the alien in the 1952 movie The Day the Earth Stood Still
