Default Space Poll: songs that are Out of this World

Astronaut Hadfield chose IYCRMM at #9 on his list

http://www.thestar.com/news/insight/...astronaut.html

I thought High & Dry ...or Long Way Back Home might be more appropriate

any other suggestions (by GL or other artists) for this 'far-out' theme?

"Sea of Tranquility" comes to mind.

Gotta Get Away from Salute. Not one of my faves but appropriate I think.

DRIFTERS
Look around this place, there's a smile on every face
We're somewhere in the afterglow out there among the stars
Out there among the bars

Too many Clues in This Room ~

Once you get out there, the only thing that comes to mind is "It's a long way back home"!

Oh the stars will remain in the heavens above
Til the sun burns out in a ring --

Nighttime.

I've seen Gord perform it in concert a few times. It was the first song he wrote upon moving to a new house in Toronto in or about 2000. Not on any album, but a bootleg copy is on YouTube, if you have never heard it.

From Shellfish:

Let it float off in the night, beneath the moon,
So brightly shining down ...

Let me show my way is best, on the wayward side tonight,
Let a planet be your guide...
