1. Spaceman- 4 Non Blondes- This gets top billing as it is the song that was running through my mind continuously as I typed this list. Here it is for your enjoyment:
Honorable Mentions- David Bowie -Space Oddity (ground control to Major Tom), Weezer-In the Garage, No Doubt- Tragic Kingdom, Two Little Men in a Flying Saucer- Ella Fitzgerald, almost everything by Jonathan Coultan, and Anything off of They Might Be Giants' Here Comes the Science.
This list was heavily influenced by the awesome album "Hey Mr. Spaceman." It is a great album, escpecially if you have kids.
