What is a biography of Sally Ride?

Asked by Wiki User

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings

Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth

Of sun-split clouds -- and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of -- wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,

I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air.

Up, up the long delirious, burning blue

I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace

Where never lark, or even eagle flew

And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

This was read by President Reagan at the memorial service the poem is "High flight" John Gillespie Magee Jr.

This isn't exactly about her though, but I hope it helps at least!

Was the song 'Ride Sally Ride' really dedicated to Sally Ride?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

As one previous answer wrote, the appropriate answer here has nothing to do with Mustang Sally.

The song the asker is referring to is Ride Captain Ride, by Blood Sweat & Tears.

It goes "Ride, captain ride on your mystery ship, Be amazed at the friends you've got there on your trip."

It was edited in the 80's-- probably not by Blood Sweat & Tears-- to have the lyrics say "Ride Sally Ride."

They do sing about "ride sally ride" in Mustang Sally, but it is unlikely that's what the asker is referring to, because that's not the name of the song and the Blood Sweat & Tears version includes a spaceship.

Hi. Different answerer here. That above was the worst answer I've ever heard.

'Mustang Sally' is the song the original asker was referencing. It's often mistakenly called 'Ride Sally Ride'. No one would ever hear 'Ride Captain Ride' and think it was about Sally Ride. In fact, the original answerer is also under the foolish assumption that Blood, Sweat & Tears recorded 'Ride Captain Ride', when in fact it was Blues Image. If he really knew enough to answer this question he would have also told that both Dennis Coffey and Lou Reed had original songs in the 70s that were actually called 'Ride Sally Ride', but like 'Mustang Sally', these were too old to have been about Ms. Ride. 'Mustang Sally', however, had its choral hook "Ride, Sally, ride" often mentioned in news articles about the famous astronaut. Also, NASA used the chorus of 'Mustang Sally' as a musical alarm for waking Ms. Ride when she was in space.

It doesn't take that long for hickeys to disappear, possibly about a couple of days, depends on how aggressive they are. If not couple of dabs from some concealer should do the job.
