Does anyone remember the E.T. (the Extra-Terrestrial) music record that came out in the 80s? It's not the one with Michael Jackson reading the story, and it's not the movie soundtrack or score. It's a bunch of songs supposedly inspired by the movie. I've searched all over, I've been on Gracenote (formerly CDDB), I've Googled, and I've come up with bupkis. All I can remember is this one snippet of lyrics:

"And then he put it in a pot
And heated it till it was hot"

I kind of remember the "it" mentioned is a pebble. I don't know why he put it in a pot and heated it (till it was hot), and I certainly don't remember that scene in the movie or the book, but there it is.

Anyone? This has been driving me nuts for years.

    The Only E.T inspired thing I remember was MJ's song "Someone in the Dark" honestly.

      E.T. and Michael Jackson... two people I wouldn't want to run into in a dark alley.

      And obviously E.T. is the worst cook EVER.

        I have the Michael Jackson and ET record story thing...
        got it from Ebay...

        And there was the 45 record of Drew Barrymore
        narrating the movie to us... along with Henry Thomas,
        and Robert McNaughton, and of course ET!!

        Sort of a kiddish record but something I can barely rememeber...! :)

          I had sort of an E.T.-obsession when I was a kid, so I had the narrated story on record, too. Strangely (considering how into E.T. I was), I had never even heard of the Michael Jackson record until recently. I also had this other record that I'm trying to get identified, though, and it quite possibly may have driven me batty.

          Has anyone read the sequel, The Green Planet? It's by the same guy that novelized the movie. It's about E.T. going back to his home planet. Elliot is starting to grow up and forget him (shades of Neverland), and E.T. grows a giant turnip or something to use as a spaceship to go back home.

            I don't know if this is it or not, but 70's Disco producer Walter Murphy had a modest hit in 1982 with a medley called "Themes From E.T."

            Here is a soundclip

              That's not it. The album I'm thinking of was vocal.

              I have heard the song you posted before, though not on that album. The local library had a cd of sci-fi movie themes that were all disco-ed up, and that was one of them. Sadly, the library doesn't have it anymore.
