Astronomy song game

  • #1
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:

I still haven't found what I'm looking for - U2 - Dark matter/energy
Here comes the Sun - The Beatles - origin of the solar system
Bananaphone - Raffi - Saturn :rofl:

...any more?

Any of the earlier songs by Ayreon...

Into the black hole
Through the wormhole
Out of the wormhole
Another time, another space

And the whole Universal Migrator albums...

My house on mars
2084
One small step
To the solar system

and so on.

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

Oops! I'll add in "Starry Starry Night" by Don McLean. More of an ode to van Gogh than to the stars, but it sure beats the heck out of "American Pie"
