I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned the rather awesome Vangelis and his theme, "Alpha" as written for the Cosmos television series.

And his album Albedo 0.39

I'm shocked that no-one's mentioned Suzanne Vega :)

Deep Purple, Space truckin':

"We had a lot of luck on Venus

We always had a ball on Mars

Meeting all the groovey people

We've rocked the Milky Way so far

We danced around with Borealice

We're space truckin' round the the stars

Come on let's go Space Truckin'"

...sing along now...

You guys have forgotten the all-time classic "Stardust" by Hoagy Carmichael. This dates from 1927 and has been recorded by more than 1,800 bands and singers -Sinatra, Rod Stewart and .... Ringo Starr to name but a few. The opening lines were definitely written for astronomers:-

Sometimes I wonder why I spend

The lonely nights dreaming .... of clear skies (well... ok, I added that last bit)
