“We Are All Made Of Stars” is a great song about space, stars and humanity. The song was written by Moby after the 9/11 attacks, and it expresses hope and awe for the human race. The song uses the scientific principle that all matter is stardust to inspire the lyrics. Other popular songs about space include “A Sky Full Of Stars” by Coldplay, and Shivaree’s “Space Baby”.
Frank Sinatra’s SONGS ABOUT SPACE
One of the most famous songs in the world is “Song About Space” by Frank Sinatra. It’s a classic that has been around for decades. The song talks about falling in love while floating in space. It was inspired by a falling star and was written in the year 1972.
It begins with a smooth guitar intro. A few verses later, the song turns into a dreamy song about space travel. The lyric talks about a girl who dreams of traveling outside the world, and features violin inserts. The song has a romantic, eerie feeling to it, and even compares a girl to the elements of the universe.
Despite its romantic theme, ‘Song About Space’ also references the Andromeda galaxy, the largest galaxy in the universe. This song also refers to the idea of leaving a dying planet. In a way, it resembles Rocket Man, except it has a cowboy in space instead of a robot.
Another song about space is “Space Oddity.” It is a play on words from the 1968 movie 2001 A Space Odyssey. Most people incorrectly assume that it’s about the moon landing. It was actually written after the moon landing.
Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’
The first recording of Elton John’s ‘Rocketing Man’ came out in 1972, as the lead single from his album Honky Chateau. This track is one of his most beloved songs, and remains a classic to this day. Its lyrics were written by Bernie Taupin and John worked with Taupin to create the song’s ebullient, pop-punk production.
Although the song’s lyrics are a bit dated, the message behind it remains relevant today. Although the lyrics mention space and the feeling of flying, its underlying message is more universal. Elton John and Bernie Taupin discussed the song’s inspiration in a 2016 interview.
The song’s title has become a cult classic, and it’s one of the most well-known rock songs in history. Elton John was one of the most recognizable and successful artists of his generation. His song was a huge hit, reaching No. 2 on the U.K. Singles Chart, and No. 6 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The song is still considered a classic and is listed by Rolling Stone as No. 245 in their list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. It also helped kick-start Paul Simon’s first tour without Art Garfunkel, who was then the band’s musical director.
A Ray Bradbury short story inspired the song. The ‘Rocket Man’ song is about a boy whose father is in a space mission and is unable to stay near him. The story explores the feelings of a father who is far from his family. The original track was written by Pearls of Swine two years earlier.
David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’
“Space Oddity” is a classic example of the concept album genre. It was the second studio album by David Bowie, a British musician. The album initially failed to sell commercially, but Bowie gained a new manager, Kenneth Pitt, and commissioned a promotional film to reach a wider audience.
Mercury Records had signed Bowie to a one-album deal after a demo tape was recorded. Bowie and Hutch began recording new song demos, including “Space Oddity”, for their forthcoming album. They recorded nine songs in Clareville Close, and the final arrangement was completed in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. Despite this setback, Bowie had already committed to signing with Mercury Records and he began working on a new album.
Although the album is best known for ‘Space Oddity’, it was not always a hit. The early versions of the song were stripped-down versions of the final cut, which is why they can be viewed as demos. They show Bowie’s improvisational style and were more confident in their arrangement.
Mercury saw the potential of the track as a potential hit on the Mercury Bowie album and arranged for Visconti to produce the tracks. Visconti turned down the track because he felt it was too gimmicky and out of place with the album’s other material.
Shivaree’s ‘Space Baby’
Shivaree’s second longplayer, Rough Dreams, was recorded, reviewed, and advertised, but somehow remained unreleased. It seems that some albums just disappear, never to return. Or at least, some of them do. In this case, it was January 1, 2010, and the album hasn’t been released since. This is the fate of some artists, but not Shivaree.
The term has come up in many different contexts, including in television shows and film. In the British drama Jamestown, Widow Castell is made to walk a Skimmington by men in power who want to control her. Another example is the TV show The Waltons, which had an episode titled “The Shivaree.” In the episode, the groom almost called off the wedding, humiliated by the shivaree, but the two decide to consummate their marriage.
Modest Mouse’s ‘Walking on the Moon’
Modest Mouse is an American indie rock band. The band is best known for their breakout hit ‘Float On’, a song about finding comfort in life’s uncertainties. The song has garnered more than 92 million views on YouTube. They then released their second single, ‘Good News Will Work Its Way to All Plans,’ and the band’s most successful album, ‘The Moon & Antarctica.’
The album’s focus on mortality makes it a mellower record than the band’s previous work. The album focuses on the acoustic side of music, downplaying the edgier side of the band. While this is not the heaviest album from the band, it’s still a solid album, and the production work by Brian Deck adds to the moody tone. While some of the songs on The Moon & Antarctica are ponderous and a little too poppy, the rest of the album is an excellent listen.
The album’s lead single, ‘Dashboard,’ reached No. 61 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also made it into the Top 50 of Alternative Songs.
The Kinks’ ‘Supersonic Rocket Ship’
This track was written by Ray Davies and recorded by the British rock band The Kinks. It was released in the UK on 5 May 1972 and in the US on 9 September 1972. The track is also featured on the band’s 1972 double LP Everybody’s in Show-Biz, which was also released on 25 August 1972. It is a delightfully dewy song about a utopian rocket ship.
Soundgarden’s ‘Block Hole Sun’
Soundgarden’s ‘Blockhole Sun’ is one of the band’s most popular songs. It’s the third single from their 1994 album Superunknown, and was written by frontman Chris Cornell. The song debuted at number one on the US Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, where it spent seven weeks. It also peaked at number two on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. It ended 1994 as the band’s top-selling single. It also reached the top 10 in Canada, Australia and Iceland, making it a worldwide hit.
Soundgarden’s album “Superunknown” is one of the band’s best-selling albums and has surpassed one hundred million streams on Spotify. The album’s Grammy-winning track “Black Hole Sun” has received 134 million views on YouTube. It has been covered by many artists including Paul Anka and Norah Jones. It was also featured in the popular TV series Westworld.
Soundgarden’s ‘Blockhole Sun’ video is one of their most bizarre yet effective music videos. It features Chris Cornell playing most of the rhythm guitar parts while Chris Thayil played lead guitar. Producer Michael Beinhorn claims that Cornell recorded the song with three guitars, although he only played the Duo Jet for the video.
