With the news that British astronaut, Tim Peake, is ready to make space history today and with news that he has chosen a number of tunes to be played into his headphones before liftoff, we got thinking about what tunes we would have for the launch itself.
So here's our list with links to the song in question.
Jay K - Son of Moonwalk
Brother Tim (Gold) is keeping it equally space themed (although it wasn't a requirement) in going for The Prodigy's Out of Space. Oddly the video was filmed on a farm but then I guess not that odd really.
Elton John being well lippy
Bon Jovi. Anyone seen Alec?
Latest addition to the Speakers Corner Logistic team is Seye Olajide and he’s gone for the nearly apt Walking on the Moon by The Police. However, Floating in the Space Station is a song yet to be written.
Dark Side of Mr Moon
It would be interesting to see what Tim Peake chose for his list; maybe we'll find out one day. Either way, we wish him and his team a safe flight up to the International Space Station, and return.
Keep rocking to whatever tune rocks your world
(or blasts you away from it)!

"Rest hard & loud".
