Alternatives to space suicide?

ESA have just run a competition to select a soundtrack for the International Space Station. This was the winning entry from 14 year old Therese from Norway:

Here Comes The Sun - Beatles
Come Fly With Me - Frank Sinatra
Rocket Man - Elton John
Up Where We Belong - Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes
Imagine - John Lennon
Flashdance - What A Feeling - Irene Cara
Walk of Life - Dire Straits
Fly - Celine Dion
Rockin' All Over The World - Status Quo
I Believe I Can Fly - R Kelly

I don't think I'd last the whole mix.

The most mentioned tracks were:
Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin
Imagine - John Lennon
Grace Kelly - Mika
What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong
Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne

The competitors were all between 10 and 17 but I don't suppose any of the adult astronauts will thank them.

Here's the kind of thing they should have had:
Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin , yeah well, it is Zep.
Space Oddity - Bowie
Rocket 88 - Warrior Soul
Love Missile F1-11 - Sigue Sigue Sputnik
Rocket - Smashing Pumpkins
Another Girl, Another Planet - Only Ones
Repo Man Theme Song - Iggy Pop
