Space Songs (with Bonus Cut!)


Here's a number of cute songs regarding space, physics, and astronomy sung by Tom Glazer (of "On Top of Spaghetti" fame) and Dottie Evans. I'd actually heard one of these songs before, "Why Does the Sun Shine" because it was redone by the group They Might Be Giants. I've included their rendition of the song as a bonus cut here. Enjoy!

Here's the track list:
  1. Zoom a Little Zoom
  2. What Is the Milky Way
  3. Constellation Jig
  4. Beep Beep (Here Comes the Satellite)
  5. Why Does the Sun Shine
  6. What Is a Shooting Star
  7. Longitude and Latitude
  8. It's a Scientific Fact
  9. Ballad of Sir Isaac Newton
  10. Friction
  11. Why Are Stars of Different Colors
  12. Why Do Stars Twinkle
  13. What Is Gravity
  14. Planet Minuet
  15. Why Go Up There
  16. Why Does the Sun Shine - They Might Be Giants
