3 Astronomy Domine - Pink Floyd Astronomy Domine - Pink Floyd

Reading the names of planets through a megaphone in the intro sounds like an astronaut over an intercom.

"Floating down, the sound resounds
Around the icy waters underground.
Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda and Titania.
Neptune, Titan, Stars can frighten." - Metal_Treasure

4 Space Truckin' - Deep Purple

This song has enough energy to launch a rocket to Mars. - Gg2000

Well we had a lot of luck on Venus
We always had a ball on Mars
We're meeting all the groovy people
We've rocked the Milky Way so far
We danced around with Borealis
We're space truckin' 'round the stars
Come on come on
Come on let's go Space Truckin'
Come on come on come on
Space Truckin'
Remember when we did the moonshot
And Pony Trekker led the way
We'd move to the Canaveral moonstop
And everynaut would dance and sway
We got music in our solar system
We're space truckin' 'round the stars - Metal_Treasure

5 Drops of Jupiter - Train

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's a time to change, hey, hey, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

But tell me, did you sail across the sun?
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated? - Metal_Treasure

6 The Final Countdown - Europe

I love love love this song.
"We're leaving together,
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground (leaving ground)
Will things ever be the same again?
It's the final countdown
The final countdown
We're heading for Venus (Venus)
And still we stand tall
'Cause maybe they've seen us (seen us)
And welcome us all, yeah
With so many light years to go
And things to be found (to be found)" - Metal_Treasure

7 Starrider - Foreigner

I stole a ride on a passing star
Not knowing where I was going
How near or how far
Through years of light, lands of future and past
Until the heavenly gates

Were sighted at last
...
Speed increasing

All control is in the hands of those who know
Will they help us grow
To one day be starriders

Starrider, rider, rider
Show me where you are
Starrider, rider, rider
Take me to the stars - Metal_Treasure

8 Man on the Moon - R.E.M.
9 Mr. Spaceman - The Byrds

Thanks for adding this one. I really enjoy this song; I think it's kinda humorous. - Gg2000

Must be those strangers that come every night
Whose saucers shaped light put people up tight
Leave blue green footprints that glow in the dark
I hope they get home all right

Hey Mr.Spaceman, won't you please take me along
I won't do anything wrong
Hey Mr.Spaceman, won't you please take me along
For a ride - Metal_Treasure

10 Walking on the Moon - The Police

Great song. Probably my favourite of The Police. - Userguy44

Giant steps are what you take
Walking on the moon
I hope my legs don't break
Walking on the moon

Walking on the moon
We could live together
Walking on, walking on the moon - Metal_Treasure

An ocean of stars gleaming like diamonds
How many times have we wondered what lies behind
And how do you wish to make explorations
And travel through space and time
To the crest of forever

Shoot up to life out there what will it be like?
And if we're much faster than light maybe I can see
What the shine of my ego looks like from a distance
And what do they know about me in faraway solar systems?

Oh I dive in zero gravity
A glance at the All

We're riding out, pass by the moon
Bird's eye view on the universe
We're all about breaking the rules
"Freeze! " goes the space police - Metal_Treasure
