Astronomical song

Or how to make astronomy memorable
  [vote for,

Whilst pondering the lack of (decent) astronomically themed songs, well except for "Super Massive Hole" of course.

I was wondering if it might make teaching this field of science easier in schools, prisons or latrines, or wherever people gather to look up at the stars.

I was thinking of something like "These Boötes are made for walking".

Yes, I am aware of astrocappella, but they are too wordy per name and "Drops of Jupiter" by Train which hardly mentions celestial objects at all....it's a swizz.

       Well there is   

       Randy Crawford "When I Get Nova You",   

       Carl Thomas (who?) "Oh No (You Can't Be Sirius)"   

       and the perennial favourite "Never mind the Pollux" of course.

       This is just a call for a list isn't it? You really should do better, n_m_rm. Or... <croon> ... would you like to swing on a star? Carry moonbeams home in a jar? </croon>

       Bun for the sentiment , sometimes I wish popular music was more informative and insightful.

       Ah, the music of the spheres. (+)
I think that the barenaked ladies should get right on it.

       ...wait, that didn't come out right   

       the truth will out..   

       I thinking of that ever popular singing duo Kaus Media and Romeda...

       Dark Star's "When Twilight Falls On NGC 891" (I don't seem able to add links, for some reason. Perhaps I'm a spambot)

       They Might Be Giants have done astronomical songs.

       Tell me what you want to elucidate and I'll give it a shot.
UnaBubba, Jun 26 2012

       blimey...I think no one got the "..and Romeda".   

       Or was it just under-funny?
not_morrison_rm, Jun 26 2012

       Naw, it was just a strain...   

       I blame Ronnie Barker ->"that Shakespeare play, about them two guys, Titus and Ronicus"
