There are plenty of songs out there that are moon themed. What are some songs you'd like to hear at Regionals/Championships?

I'll go first:
Walking on the Moon - The Police

Spaceman (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=t_9MI2ymN6s&feature=related) by Babylon Zoo

I'm sure I can pull a few more space themed songs from my music collection when I get home but that's just the first one that came to mind.

Oh, and Space Oddity (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=D67kmFzSh_o) by David Bowie as well. (You know, the one that says "This is Ground Control to Major Tom"?)

Definitely Fly Me The Moon (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=1rAsoLm1Ges) by Sinatra.

Anything from The Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd.

Oh, and definitely for kicks, anything from the Wall-E soundtrack including Put On Your Sunday Clothes (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=4eeiohJn1sQ&feature=related) by Michael Crawford

Taylor

Maybe that will be a goal for me. I have always wanted to knwo how to Moonwalk. Maybe I can get one of my kids to teach me.

Speaking of which. During a timeout, how cool would it be to see a Moonwalk race? Of course just like competition speed walking, strict enforcement of proper "from" would be necessary.:p
