    Default Celestial bodies in song titles

    For the purposes of this thread - the definition of a celestial body is:

    Any natural body outside of the earth's atmosphere

    (Not to be confused with ‘heavenly’ bodies – I think we all know exactly where that might end up! Lol!!)

    … Not that things astronomical present any form of restriction – there are all sorts of galaxies, constellations and other whirling, twirling and speeding things out there with a preponderance of earthly names, especially now that anyone can have a star named after them (which no doubt expired gazillions of years ago; it’s a scam, I tell you, and who, exactly, has annexed outer space???!).

    Anyway we’re talking here about the moon, sun, and the other planets of our own little solar system as well as asteroids and comets, and going further afield, Andromeda, or Alpha Centauri, Pegasus, or even the Milky Way, but preferably, not the ISS, or some other manmade capsule sponsored by Red Bull. Please.

    And … song can mean an instrumental track too – the whole explanation would’ve made the thread title far too long.

    I’ll start off then, with … the wonderful CSN, and "Southern Cross" -

    Followed by what I think is my fav by ELO – (one of the comments under this clip is so funny – ‘Jeff Lynne may be the only person whose hair got smaller in the 80's’… – Lol!!)

    Just noticed MH's post,
    after 'back to the egg', my favourite album by Wings.

    Band On The Run may have broke Wings as a force in music but the two above along with "London town" and "red rose speedway" were better albums IMO, not that there's anything wrong with BOTR, I just prefer listening to the other ones,

    ^^^To MH - yep – that’ll do nicely thank you! You got me with that reference though – AC/DC?! – Hmmm … (a very light thinking sound).

    ^^And CH – yes – I can see the Southern Cross. Always look up for it. I'm assuming you can too??

    Meanwhile – astrology was bound to enter into the equation sooner or later, and who better to jump in with?

    Shawn Phillips - "Song for Sagittarians" (plus a bonus track since this was only clip I could find that wasn't cut short - Lookin' Up, Lookin' Down' ...)

    I hope this qualifies. If not, I'll share another song later.
