Very good Ron - unfortunately, I remember him too!

HehHehHheh!! Yeah, but when I think back to those days, I remember how Absolutely brilliant they were.

Of course, everybody has their own superb musical era.

Lets face it, a world without music is a dead one.

Ron.:)

Then there was UFO (the band).

Not forgetting Hawkwind, setting of as the Hawklords from Moorcock's novels, on the LP 'In Search of Space', with 'Master of the Universe' and 'Silver Machine', followed by 'Doremi Faso Latido', a series of space chants:

Do - Mars - red

Re - Sun - orange

Mi - Mercury - yellow

Fa - Saturn - green

So - Jupiter - blue

La - Venus - Indigo

Ti - Moon - violet

These themes were elaborated upon in 'Space Ritual' with 'Earth Calling', 'Space Is Deep', etc.

King Crimson's 'Islands' featured the Trifid nebula on the LP cover.

A cracking era Ron - glad I was part of it.

Artie Shaw's 1956 Album 'Moonglow', featuring the title track, as well as 'Star Dust', and appropriate for those without an observatory negotiating a large Newtonian on an equatorial mount 'Dancing in the Dark' (for some a 'Nightmare', another track on the same LP).

(These tracks predate 1956, as Shaw stopped composing and playing in 1954 to concentrate on writing)

How come "Space Oddity" of David Bowie is not here?

Rush_ Equinox

Great astronomical lyrics from the latter include:

"Wheels within wheels

In a spiral array,

A pattern so grand and complex"

One for the solar observers....

"Good day sunshine" - The Beatles

how about this one. Frank Sinatra sang it many years ago.

And, we have two bodies for the price of one.:)

Ron.

"East Of The Sun (West Of The Moon)"

East of the sun and west of the moon

We'll build a dream house of love dear

Close to the sun in the day

Near to the moon at night

We'll live in a lovely way dear

Sharing our love in the pale moonlight

Just you and I, forever and a day

Love will not die; we'll keep it that way

Up among the stars we'll find a harmony of life to a lovely tune

East of the sun and west of the moon dear

East of the sun and west of the moon
