Abstract

This annotated resource guide presents 133 pieces of music inspired by astronomical ideas, discoveries, or history, organized in 22 subject categories. Both classical and popular music are included, but only when a clear connection to astronomy could be established. Depending on your musical tastes, you are likely to find some pieces resonating with you and others like the squeaking noise on a blackboard when chalk is held at the wrong angle. But some of the ideas and analogies the pieces represent may intrigue you and your students. Only music available on CD is included, so that educators who want to use some of these in the classroom can purchase a legal copy. A short appendix lists a number of astronomers who have recorded songs and self-published them.
