What Music do they Listen to in Space?

by - Friday, June 07, 2013

Alright, I am trying to make a playlist for the first week of camp that is all space-y, but also fun and energetic to keep the energy up. What are some songs about space? Did pigs in space ever do a number??? Is just tech-y sounding music enough, because I kind of leaned that way.  This is what I have come up with so far, and you are VERY welcome to give suggestions!

The Playlist thus Far

Maps- Yeah Yeah Yeahs
I'll Believe in Anything- Wolf Parade
Brand New Colony- The Postal Service
Such Great Heights- The Postal Service

She's Got me Dancing- Tommy Sparks
Call Your Girlfriend- Robyn
I am Not a Robot- Marina and the Diamonds
La Vie en Rose- Louis Anrmstrong
TKO- Le Tigre (am I allowed to be covertly indoctrinating them?)
Language is a Virus- Laurie Anderson
O Superman- Laurie Anderson
In the Morning- Junior Boys
Grow Old with Me- The Postal Service
Fashion- David Bowie (I wanted Ziggy Stardust, but there is cursing)
Clocks- Coldplay
Human Behavior- Bjork
Staralfur- Sigur Ros
When you WIsh Upon a Star- Michael Feinstein

Ok, what else am I missing here? I only have hour long classes, but some of these songs don't need played a couple of times in the course of a day.  Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!
