I am really beginning to think that Queensryche's song Silent Lucidity is about astral projection.

Here's half of the song:

So here it is, another chance, wide awake you face the day.
The dream is over, or has it just begun....?
 
There's a place I like to hide,
A doorway that I run through in the night
Relax child, you were there
But only didn't realize that you were scared.
It's a place where you will learn
To face your fears
retrace the years
And ride the whims of your mind.
 
Commanding in another world
Suddenly you hear and see this magic new dimension
I........will be watching over you
I........am gonna help to see you through
I........will protect you in the night
I........am smiling next to you
In silent lucidity
 
Visualize your dream,
Record it in the present tense,
Put it into a permanent form,
If you persist in all efforts,
You can achieve a dream come true...
...a dream come true...
...a dream come true...
 
If you open your mind to me
you won't rely on open eyes to see.
The walls you built within
Come tumbling down; a new world will begin.
Living twice at once you learn
you're safe from pain in the dream domain
a soul set free to fly.
 
A round trip journey in your head
master of illusion, can you realize your dream's alive
You can be the guide
I........will be watching over you
I........am gonna help to see you through
I........will protect you in the night
I........am smiling next to you
In silent lucidity

Silent Lucidity was a great song and I haven't heard that one in years but I loved it.

I'm thinking of taking some of the songs listed here and putting them on a CD so I can have driving music. As I'm always on the road traveling to and fro and making long trips, it seems like a good way to keep AP on the mind even when you can't be practicing. Might even record some affirmations and layer them into the music.

There's a couple Ronnie James Dio and Rainbow songs which mention it too. I'll post them after I compile the titles.

That's what I was hoping to do also!  Cool

Also echoes by Pink Floyd:
Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine
And no one showed us to the land
And no one knows the wheres or whys
But something stares and
Something tries
And starts to climb towards the light

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can
And no one calls us to the land
And no one crosses there alive
And no one speaks
And no one tries
And no one flies around the sun

And now this is the day you fall
Upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Comes streamin in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide

In the world in general and in this nation
May not even the names disease, famine, war, and suffering be heard.
May virtuous qualities, merit, and prosperity greatly increase
And may continuous good fortune and subline well-being perfectly arise.

Here's an obvious one: "Thinking is the Best Way to Travel" by the Moody Blues. It even has some astral "beep" noises in it.

Didn't Shpongle do a song about it, called Behind Closed Eyes or something?  Anyway, I don't think Learning to Fly is really about AP.  David Gilmour is very big on actual aviation, owning as he does a huge range of airplanes.

Yeah, I know but I turned the Learning to Fly lyrics to suit my own needs.   Smiley

Kitaro has an album called "Astral Voyage" which is one of his best in my opinion.

How about 'And She Was' by Talking Head? This has got to be one of the best.

-----------------
And She Was
------------------

And she was lying in the grass
And she could hear the highway breathing
And she could see a nearby factory
She's making sure she is not dreaming
See the lights of a neighbor's house
Now she's starting to rise
Take a minute to concentrate
And she opens up her eyes

The world was moving and she was right there with it (and she was)
The world was moving she was floating above it (and she was) and she was

And she was drifting through the backyard
And she was taking off her dress
And she was moving very slowly
Rising up above the earth
Moving into the universe
Drifting this way and that
Not touching ground at all
Up above the yard

CHORUS

She was glad about it... no doubt about it
She isn't sure where she's gone
No time to think about what to tell them
No time to think about what she's done
And she was

And she was looking at herself
And things were looking like a movie
She had a pleasant elevation
She's moving out in all directions

CHORUS

Joining the world of missing persons (and she was)
Missing enough to feel alright (and she was)

I'm kind of finding some of these that are listed to be ambiguous. I mean, some of these might have references similar to the state or action of astral projection, but that doesn't neccessarily mean that each was intended by the artist to mean as such. The state of dreaming, and also just the state of freedom and release from stess (which are all common means of inspiraction for songwriting) bring about imagery of free floating or falling free, and release. Like I said, some just seem to be ambiguous, ha.

I believe Behind Closed Eyelids could as well be about seeing things behind closed eyelids under the influence of hallucinogens or alike. A great track anyways. Smiley
