For obvious reasons (lots of Apollo), plus they're from England.

Rocket by Def Leppard  from the album Hysteria, 1987.

"Planet Caravan" by Pantera from the 1994 album "Far Beyond Driven", originally recorded by Black Sabbath from the album Paranoid.

This song and video are certainly off pace for typical Pantera music.  These guy were great live, saw them 3x.

Some space travel and a dash of terraforming.



Lyrics: Songwriters: IOMMI, WARD, BUTLER, OSBORNE
We sail through endless skies
Stars shine like eyes
The black night sighs
The moon in silver trees
Falls down in tears
Light of the night
The earth, a purple blaze
Of sapphire haze
In orbit always

While down below the trees
Bathed in cool breeze
Silver starlight breaks down the night
And so we pass on by the crimson eye
Of great god mars
As we travel the universe

Even better they are from Yorkshire! ;D

They (are - still going) one of those bands better live. This is that track from their home town gig in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

(Top marks for Rocky IV soundtrack too. That was a good soundtrack!)

Since there must be very few, I am afraid, let´s allow here also sci-fi songs, if they are songs about sci-fi involving spaceflight/other planets/star systems

Saxon - The Eagle Has Landed

I see my thread was moved here... although it's clearly two very different things. I asked about songs ABOUT spaceflight, not about music "to listen in spaceflight". Like... how is a classical song from the 18th century related to spaceflight at all?

well, the mods are the bosses, so let´s get along with it.


Ayreon, a progressive metal band, has this album called Universal Migrator


some of the lyrics
Quote
"We are on our way to the quasar, an object as bright as a galaxy. Our hope is that the
quasar may contain an unfathomable source of power and peril at its center ... a black
hole."

"On our journey, we receive the radio emissions of a pulsar -- an imploded neutron star."

[A. THE TAURUS PULSAR]

Within a distant nebula in the Taurus zodiac
I hear the wailing of a star, the weak pulse of a fading sun

All its fuel is burning out and its light will fade to black
I can't ignore its hopeless shout as it fires its death cry out in space

A star in Taurus lights up and outshines the galaxy
A fleeting moment of glory in time and space
A supernova resounds, a desperate symphony
Leaving behind a beacon fallen from grace

Lift your head up to the sky
And hear the faraway cry of a dying star

I heard its message from afar
A frequent surge of sight and sound
We approach the fallen neutron star
Spinning round and round and round



The album Somewhere Out In Space, by German heavy metal band Gamma Ray, has all it´s songs based in space, although mostly more on the vein of sci-fi, rather than realistic/historical spaceflight

the tracklist already shows the theme...
"Beyond the Black Hole" (L:Hansen M:Hansen/Schlächter/Zimmermann) – 6:00
"Men, Martians and Machines" (Hansen) – 3:52
"No Stranger (Another Day in Life)" (Hansen) – 3:35
"Somewhere Out in Space" (Hansen) – 5:27
"The Guardians of Mankind" (Richter) – 5:01
"The Landing" (L:Hansen M:Schlächter) – 1:16
"Valley of the Kings" (Hansen) – 3:51
"Pray" (L:Hansen M:Schlächter) – 4:45
"The Winged Horse" (Richter) – 7:02
"Cosmic Chaos" (Zimmermann) – 0:48
"Lost in the Future" (L:Hansen M:Schlächter) – 3:40
"Watcher in the Sky" (Hansen/Sielck) – 5:19
"Rising Star" (Schlächter) – 0:51
"Shine On" (L:Hansen M:Schlächter) – 6:52
