1962 Bonus Song - "Fireball XL5"

The Bonus Song for 1962 is the theme from "Fireball XL5", a Saturday morning science fiction show. It was filmed in "Supermarionation" - using electronic puppets in a manner that creators Gerry and Sylvia Anderson used later in the show "Thunderbirds". 

The theme became a minor hit in Britain for vocalist Don Spencer, according to Wikipedia. I've always liked it, and I remembered it through a half century and more ...

Let me know what you think, and I'll be back soon with the 1963 SixtySong!
