What’s the best rock song about travel to the moon or other points in space? As Rock Town Hall marks the 40th anniversary of humankind’s first landing on the moon, I can’t help but think back to the night, as a 6-year-old boy, my family gathered around a little B&W tv at the apartment we were renting in Ocean City, New Jersey. I went to bed late that night, sleeping in the top bunk of the kids’ bedroom. I awoke on the floor the next morning, presumably having rolled out of bed, dropping 5 feet, and probably getting knocked unconscious before I had a chance to awake from my fall. The other thing I’ve been thinking about is David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” That song always painted such a clear picture of space travel when I was a kid, and it still does today.
