Since the dawn of time, mankind has been curious about life on other planets. In our quest to find other lifeforms, we’ve sent an array of probes, waves, signals and spacecraft into the unknown. Along with these efforts, we’ve also sent audio recordings and songs into deep space, with the hope that aliens will find them and send back mix-tapes of their own.

National Hearing Care have compiled a playlist of songs, all of which have been sent up into space. They vary from classical pieces to Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B Goode”, the cadence of human languages and more. The first ten tracks were launched into space aboard the Voyager space probes in 1977 and are songs that space agencies believe best represent humanity.
