Any Music That You Associate With Astronomy?

Recommended Posts

For me it's jean michel jarre's oxygene. I also have k'hana, the eagle and the condor (native spirit music of the americas) and ch'amany.

Stunned that no-one has mentioned "Heaven & Hell Part III" by Vangelis. After all, it was used as the theme tune on a rather seminal TV series..

I'm with the Floyd vote, but one you may not have heard is "Jupiter Crash" by "The Cure"

As usual for The Cure it works on more than one level, beautiful track IMHO.

Not just only Neptune but the whole of Holst`s music for the Planets is fantastic.

Early electronic music by Tangerine Dream-particularly the albums Alpha Centauri and Zeit.

A lot of their early music has a cosmic feel to it.

The guys and I always listen to "Echoes" by Pink Floyd while we're observing. Must give the "Space Ritual" a blast sometime.

The song Astronomy by Blue Oyster Cult, quite awesomely covered by Metallica in the 90's. "Astronomyyyyyyyyyyyy. A staaaaaaaaaaar!"

The albums Spheres and Spheres II by Delerium.

And this bit from The Answer by Bad Religion:

"at a time when wise men peered

through glass tubes toward the sky

the heavens changed in predictable ways

and one man was able to find

that he had thought he found the answer

and he was quick to write his revelation

but as they were scutinized

in his colleagues eyes

he soon became a mockery"

I'm a bit on the slow side with this one - mind you I did only join last night!

It's Enigma all the way for me - the album 'A Posteriori' inspired me to get back under the stars again. It's very space-y .....man! icon6.gif

Vangelis - Movement 3 from 'Heaven & Hell', used as the Theme music for Carl Sagan's Cosmos.

I've just to it again on Youtube, the one with the APOD pictures and it's made me go all moody and introspective... :)

Soundtrack to the Carl Sagan series; Cosmos especially the main theme by Vangelis. Puts me right in the spaced-out mood, a very happy, glorious piece.

Oh - and Lux Aeterna by Gyorgy Ligeti, used in '2001 a space odyssey'.

Lux Aeterna was used during the flight from moonbase at clavius to the site of the monolith - it's seems to capture the 'stillness over aeons' feeling of being on the moon,
