Bohemian Rapsody's song about Queen is about an eclipse. The Alan Parsons Project's song "Total eclipse" is about a astronomical event.

Alright, basically you have to think of a song that in some way relates to a planet, star, moon, astronomer, concept, theory, astronomical term, etc. Expect some to be funny. I'll start off:

Here comes the Sun - The Beatles - origin of the solar system
Bananaphone - Raffi - Saturn :smile:

...any more?

Any of the earlier songs by Ayreon...

One small step
To the solar system

Isn't that Space Oddity? :-p I guess it doesn't count, but The Planets by Holst is, of course, the first thing that came to my mind.
