Pop singer mentioned in Walter M. Miller Jr.'s classic sci-fi short story "Death of a Spaceman" (1954). The titular spaceman's wife sings one of Farran's songs:

"O moon whereo'er the clouds fly,
Beyond the willow tree,
There is a ramblin' space guy
I wish you'd save for me.

"Mare Tranquillitatis,
O dark and tranquil sea,
Until he drops from heaven,
Rest him there with thee ..."
