We want you to boldy go where no Readers Recommend has gone before ... and suggest your favourite celestial songs
Space: the final frontier. As limitless as the human imagination. Gazing at the stars and the planets has inspired all sorts of flights of fancy. Hell, entire religions and belief systems have been based on staring into space.
Musicians, too, have been captivated by the movements of the heavens ? and of course by human explorations of space, such as the Apollo moon landings.
What are your favourite songs about space? I'll gather the best of them in a blog posted here next Thursday.
