My first thought as well! Although, strictly speaking, can it be a song if it's an instrumental? Meh, who cares!

Anyway, how about Mr Apollo from the Bonzos?

And an album name with a satellite (cluster) in it - Astra by Asia. Third album, not a great commercial success, but some cracking mid 80s tunes on it
