Lazy Sunday Music: The Final Frontier

Posted on: August 18, 2013

Good Sunday, Widdershins.

Today we’ll pay tribute to space.  That covers a great deal of, er, ground musically speaking.  There are numerous songs about space, astronauts, the sun, the moon, the stars, the planets, and constellations.   No one should have the least bit of difficulty coming up with tunes in the genre of their choice, as I found well over a hundred while researching this post.

My favorites are listed below, and I look forward to yours in this otherwise open thread.

(1) Dark Side of the Moon –  Pink Floyd, 1973

(2) Bad Moon Rising – Creedence Clearwater Revivial, 1969

(3) Rocket Man – Elton John, 1972

(4) Drops of Jupiter – Train, 1998

(5) Starlight – Taylor Swift, 2012

Let’s hear them.

“Moondance” – Van Morrison

“Once in a Very Blue Moon” – Nanci Griffith

“The Moon and St. Christopher” – Mary Black

Great choices, Beata.

Another Irish singer: “Never Be the Sun” – Dolores Keane

“Skyline Pigeon” – Elton John ( This is for you, Lilscot, wherever you are. )

“Space Oddity” – David Bowie

“Mars” – Television

You may have heard the music, not knowing what it was.

And this was Telstar.

Holst The Planets- Neptune

I’m not putting all of them in here…(or maybe I will)

Why not? They meet the criteria.

>Why not?


I think Moondance is my fav, good job Beata. Here’s another interesting oldie:

@socal: Ack! I was trying to think of some of the oldies.

Yeah, I like old stuff on Sundays.

@23: Those were good choices.
