Emergency Trivia Question!

Okay, I have a quick need that I KNEW the musical masterminds at AM would be able to help me with quickly.

I need a list of all the songs on the Moon that have to do with space or astronomy.

List 'em here! I need the list for a radio show that I'm starting here in Cincinnati (real terrestrial radio)! Any help, as fast as possible would be appreciated. I have many songs that pop into my head, but I know that I'm probably missing a lot that I know you guys would find.

Super thanks in advance for helping to support good music and good science!

Re: Emergency Trivia Question!

Well there is always the "set your controls...." from PF and the other covers.

But now that vax has added functionality to our data base you can query many things like planets, stars, universe, space, and get up to several hundred results.

And where would you be without "Space Oddity."
And Olias of Sunhillow - a world on the other side of the universe.

I could make your need this Thursday's Theme and then you could use the playlist.

I could, as others have pointed out, do some SQL queries but that would only work with keywords in the track title. Not exactly a great way to get you your results because that would turn up things that don't necessarily fit your request and miss many others.
