    Any song with something that is found in the sky or universe, also any weather related song.
    We did a similar thread a long time ago, but maybe we'd enjoy a repeat. :)

    Heavenly Sunshine

    Thank Heaven For Little Girls

    Blue Skies

    Venus

    Fly Me To the Moon

    Oh, Boy, GB. Lots of songs from this category.

    I Only Have Eyes for you. Are the stars out tonight?
    I don't care if it's cloudy or bright.
    A Harry Warren tune from a 1930s musical
    sung by Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell. Powell was a
    crooner in several Warner Brothers musicals. Later
    became a detective in film noir pics.

    That Lucky Old Sun got nothing to do, but roll around Heaven all day.
    Recorded by lottsa folks including Ray Charles and Frankie Laine.

    Deep in the Heart of Texas. The stars at night are big and bright.
    (Clap, clap, clap, clap.)

    Oh, Bury Me Not on the Lone Prairie, beneath the western sky.

    Get Out and Get Under the Moon, a 1920s song recorded by
    Helen Kane, Doris Day, Nat King Cole, etc.

    Roll Along Prairie Moon, recorded by Bonnie Guitar, etc.

    It's Only a Paper Moon, sailing over a cardboard sea.
    A Harold Arlen song, Judy's favorite composer. (Wrote
    Over the Rainbow among others.)

    Hi GB,

    Here's a old tune that was popular when we were in grade school.
    Mockingbird Hill. When the sun in the morning peeps over the hill.

    Let's Go fly a Kite from Mary Poppins. If you're lucky you might
    even see Mary Poppins up in the sky.

    In the Misty Moonlight, recorded by Jim Reeves; Dean Martin.
    This Old House. The lyrics mention three things you might
    see in the sky: storms, lightning, an angel.

    Sunshine On My Shoulders, by John Denver.
    A Foggy Day in London Town by the Gershwin brothers.
    Also mentions the sun.

    The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen. Sung by various
    Scots on Youtube.

    Oh the weather outside is frightful. But the fire is so delightful. And
    since we've no place to go. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

    Frosty the Snowman.
    Catch A Falling Star. A gold record for Perry Como. He also won
    a Grammy at the first Grammy Awards ceremony.

    Hey, GB
    All those rain songs reminded me of James Melton who had a hit song
    in the 30s titled September in the Rain. Melton was a member of a
    quartet, became a pop singer, and then a tenor at the Met. I have
    a CD of his recordings. Title of the CD is September in the Rain.

    And then there's The Rain in Spain from My Fair Lady. The first
    musical I ever saw on stage. It had opened on Broadway 2 years
    earlier and was still playing 4 years later.

    My Favorite Things, another song sung by Julie Andrews. The lyrics
    mention raindrops, snowflakes, wild geese and the moon.

    The Day that the Rains Came Down. A top 40 hit for Jane Morgan.
    A wonderful singer from the days when singers had voices.

    Rainbows Are Back In Style, recorded by Slim Whitman and
    Dean Martin.

    Fly Me to the Moon, a 50s song recorded by lottsa people. The
    lyrics mention Jupiter, Mars and the moon.

    In the Misty Moonlight recorded by Hank Snow, Dean Martin,
    Jim Reeves.
