Pink Floyd Space Poll

I was listening to some early Pink Floyd recently and was reminded that their 1960s albums had several songs with titles and/or lyrics relating to space travel. Of these five intergalactic-themed tracks, which is your favourite?

Astronomy Domine (1967)


Interstellar Overdrive (1967)


Let There Be More Light (1968)


Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun (1968)


Cirrus Minor (1969)

Re: Pink Floyd Space Poll

I like all of these tracks and would rank them as below:

1. Astronomy Domine
2. Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun
3. Let There Be More Light
4. Interstellar Overdrive
5. Cirrus Minor

In my opinion, Astronomy Domine and Set The Controls... both rank as highlights from early (pre-1970) Pink Floyd, and I also really like the live versions of both on Ummagumma, but Astronomy Domine gets my vote as I love the guitar work and the entertaining nonsense lyrics.
