You're there

Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand has touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there.

—Ray Bradbury

 Early Bradbury screenplay...

 influenced close encounters among many, many, other films.

Two teenage boys find more than they expected when they visit
a traveling carnival... another couple of teenagers that meet mysterious 

 Rocket Man was one of the stories in this collection...

...worth singing about.
