I found this really cool song and i have no idea who it's by. so i came to UG for help! It sounds very bluesy and from the 70's maybe 80's. This is what I've got from the lyrics so far...

I was standin in the yard last september
when i saw the lights above me in the sky
they gave me a drink so good that i cant remember
when we left the earth (dont know rest of line)

Chorus:
well we flew up and down over city, over town
and we flew up to the everloving stars
and i went on a trip up in their purple rocket ship
with the ladies and the gentlemen from mars

took me, they took me to their leader
a lovely martian girl with skin so green
i was freezed(?) as martian punch to meet her
she was the best lookin 3 headed woman i ever seen

Chorus again.... then another 2 minutes that i dont wanna type out and dont know the lyrics.


I searched on google, wikipedia, even pandora and almost everything i can think of...

if anyone knows who sings this that would be awesome

i suggest you listen to the song if you havent heard it, its pretty cool

it says for me that it was a collaboration with Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison but thats obviously not right

O RLY???

On your queue, I downloaded the song from Napster myself and I can only imagine that since there is only one singer, and that it is in NO way any three of them that it is a tribute song to them. I'm listening to the lyrics and I'm thinking that is the answer.
I've found, in general, which I'm sure you know since you're a fan, that you have to be very very careful with Napster.
My friends and I sometimes refer to it as "the Permeation of Ignorance"....
One person will make the mistake of saying that Janis sang "Son of a Preacher Man" and a hundred ignoramuses will download it
There are numerous songs on Napster which are mislabeled as Janis tunes...
Just listen to them and you'll know right away...
In the case of this song, I find that it is not "fake" but a mislabeling...
It probably originally said "Spaceship Blues" about Morrison, Joplin and Hendrix and some dummy changed the name and went onto the Napster server
Anyway, Thanks for your question
I hope I've answered it to your satisfaction

PS Also, from all the information I've absorbed, I don't think that morrison/hendrix/joplin or any combination of the three ever collaborated.... Janis and Jim became drinking buddies tho, so they might have sung in some bar Other than that, however, a trio should be questioned right away

^not only was that annoying, it still didn't answer my question.

I wanted to know who it was by, i knew it wasnt Hendrix, Morrison, or Joplin

My friends and I listened to and compared the voice to the singer of The Kinks. All four of us and her dad think it sounds a lot like them. That's our best guess.
