SpaceIt's time to wrap up our series of space-related playlists. For this final list I thought I would look back and pick the very best songs from the playlists posted over the past week, as well as picking songs from other space-themed playlists we've published over the last four years or so. At the end of this blog post you'll find links to all of them.
Space is a popular subject for songwriters, and progressive rock bands seem especially drawn to the theme. This playlist includes 27 songs, and will provide a couple hours + of space music for your listening enjoyment. I'm aware that this hardly scratches the surface. After all, there are hundreds of thousands of songs that have been inspired by the universe, so it would be impossible to include them all.
But tell me, what would be on your ultimate "space list"?
