Daniel Johnston - Rocket Ship

There is only one rocket man and his name is Daniel Johnston. The guy is one of the greatest living Texans, and is responsible for more pure wonder than just about anyone else. Rocket Ship comes from his home recorded 1983 album Yip/Jump Music. Not only does it evoke the romance and mystery of space adventure, it also has Johnston hammering away on his chord organ so emphatically that it adds a ghostly layer of percussion to the song. Even though he was never one of music's great timekeepers, it becomes a hypnotic listen.
