    Rocket man by Elton John?

    T-rex probably sing some sci-fi, but nobody knows what they're singing about.

    Imagine by John Lennon is quite sci-fi.

    And that crap song they keep playing on rock stations: "The chances of anything coming from mars, are a million to one..." I don't know what it's called. Neither do I want to.

    The purple people eater (great Halloween song) by.... uh... the big bop or something? That's classic sci-fi.

    So's sweet transvestite, The time warp, etc. from the Rocky Horror picture show.

    For example, the album "Space Metal" by Star One is entirely sci-fi themed.

    Does "Set the controls to the heart of the sun" count?

    Hawkwind is often space-related as well.
