List Rules Since there aren't a ton of songs just about stars in the sky, we've included songs below with the alternate meaning of the word star as well.

If you love looking up at the night sky and getting lost in its beauty, then you'll love this list of the best songs about stars. The best star songs are either about bright lights in the night sky or about being a famous celebrity. There are great hip-hop songs about stars and fantastic rock songs about stars. Some of the best songs about stars even incorporate the entire galaxy.

One of the most epic, soaring songs about stars is “Starlight” by Muse. These guys have a knack for writing songs with “universe”-al appeal. “We Are All Made of Stars” and “A Sky Full of Stars” also made this list of the best songs about stars, as did “Intergalactic” by the Beastie Boys.On the celebrity star front, Cypress Hill had a hit with their track “(Rock) Superstar” back in 2000.

The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs released an early single entitled “Art Star” and the Buggles sang about how “Video Killed the Radio Star.” I wonder why someone hasn't written about the internet killing the video star yet.

Give your favorite star songs a thumbs up to vote it up on this list! Also, add any celestial tunes we may have missed.
