Louise Gold, a Berlin-based singer/songwriter, recorded John Lennon's song 'Oh My Love' cover and added sounds of 'Neil Armstrong's heartbeat and planet Venus' to honor the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing.

Gold started this when he heard a radio program about the moon landing that mentioned how Armstrong's heartbeat spiked to 160 bpm before he left Apollo 11 and then slowed again when he walked on the lunar surface, CNet reported.

The artist, who has long been fascinated by space, discovered a NASA recording of sounds derived from the plasma wave detector on the Voyager craft as it traveled through waves of electrons in ionized gas.

Gold said when she heard the sounds, all she could listen was the harmony between Venus and Armstrong's heartbeat, then 'Oh My Love' came into her mind and all of a sudden the song seemed absolutely complete.
