It’s amazing what happens sometimes when you’re surfing the internet. I started with my daily dose of Sci Show Space, which led me to Gustav Holst’s Suite of Planets. I realized that Holst wrote The Planets before Pluto was discovered, so he can’t be blamed that after 1930, he was missing a planet (of course now he’s OK again if you want align yourself with the Astronomer’s Union). Over the years composers have “added” to Holst’s work with various songs about Pluto.
There are serious attempts like Pluto, the Renewer by Colin Matthews):
and very silly (yet funny) pieces, like For the Planet Pluto by the Music Tapes:
And I particularly like this one, Plutonian Nights by Sun Ra:
Then my lunch break was up and I had to get back to work!
Any unsung heroes in your life?
