Today, my facebook feed showed a lot of "May the Fourth Be With You" . Apparently, it is Star Wars day today, a joyous occasion for many fans around this globe and the ones beyond our solar system.
Yet, when I saw those posts, another song popped up in my head, and another one and another one. So now, I got a bunch of songs about space, not necessarily restricted to space rock.
I know, Trekkies and Star Wars Fans haven't always been seeing eye to eye but you can't not love this golden oldie by The Firm and its amazing clay animation video.
It's David Bowie, it's a classic, it certainly deserves a spot on this list, don't you think?
Of course, the dance industry have also thrown their fair share of space influenced tunes into the world, like this massive hit by The Prodigy.
This anthem by progressive master minds Rush will takes you on a journey towards a black hole. You have been warned...
Another delightfully trippy space rock tune by psychedelic geniuses Ozric Tentacles.
Well, that's true, there's no denying that. Enjoy this groovy and immersive anthem by the original masters of space rock.
This space ambient project by founding member of Red Sparowes and Battle of Mice, Josh Graham is an absolute must for everyone who love to dwell in the darkest regions of outer space.
This beauty by krautrock legends Ashra will gladly guide you along the planets and stars, just close your eyes and imagine your beautiful trip.
On the somewhat more electronic side of the musical universe we find this massive hit by Germany's electro pioneers Kraftwerk.
Right, back to guitars and now we're dealing with something spacey, fuzzy and naughty, courtesy of stoner rockers Space Fisters.
The world of black metal also knows a thing or two about the cosmic infinity that surrounds us, just ask epic industrial black metal act The Kovenant.
Some more fuzzed out goodness, this time for the amazing Farflung. Space rock at its finest, and perfectly capable of getting you out there.
Of course, Black Sabbath's supernaut has to be on this list. Without them, some of the other bands might never have existed...
Here you go, some hip hop fun with undoubtedly one of the best acts that this scene has even seen.
Hey, look, a whole list of space songs without mentioning 'The Final Countdown' or 'Spaceman', isn't that nice. Let's end with this piece of educational genius by comedy masterminds Monty Python.
