The inspiration for this edition of the SB Mixtape came to me while listening to an episode of Startalk Radio with Neil deGrasse Tyson. One of the guests wondered when science or the cosmos would become infused with popular music in the US, and I thought K-pop has not shied away from using different aspects of the universe as its muse.

Recently, Ladies’ Code‘s “Galaxy” and Brown Eyed GirlsBasic are both examples of K-pop artists exploring themes involving space and how it intersects with human emotions. The world is filled with wonderment, so it comes as no surprise that it has inspired a number of K-pop’s songs.

K-pop in Space from seoulbeats on 8tracks Radio.

Are there any space-themed songs you think we should have included in this list?
