Playlistin': Top 4 Space Song Wake-Ups
With the launch of NASA's very last historic Shuttle Program on the morning of July 8th, Atlantis' 33rd mission not only marks the end of an era of space exploration, it also brings to a close NASA's lesser-known wake-up song program.

- The Magnum P.I. theme (um...ok)
- What A Wonderful World (obviously)
- Free Fallin' (duh!)
- Rocket Man (a total given)
- Even Taylor Swift Can Get Down With Kanye's "All Day"
