Can you imagine being the guy who got to play the music to the aliens and he's all, "See Mrs. Gornacheski! I can play! 15 years of lessons and you said I'd never amount to any thing! But look at me now!" Also that tall alien was some kind of spooky.
SOMEHOW I'd never seen like the first 2/5ths of the movie and now everything makes way more sense and it's a lot less scary than when I was six and saw it.
