higher than the stars

I'm looking for songs. Very specific songs. Synth-pop songs, with female vocalists, that are related (tangentially) to the word "stars."

Here's what I have so far:

Higher Than The Stars - Pains of Being Pure At Heart
any number of Stars songs
Sudden Stars - Stereolab
Paris - Aeroplane ft. Au Revoir Simone
Clap (See The Stars) - Myrmidons

Stars - Au Revoir Simone

also, "kelly watch the stars" by Air is kind of androgynous-sounding.

Stars Above Us by St. Etienne (this is one of my all-time favorite songs ever)
Stars by Dubstar (the remixes are much better and peppier!)

I kind of despise synthpop, but there's always Ben Watt & Stimming's standout tech house track from earlier this year, "Bright Star," which featured Julia Biel on vocal. Great stuff. Don't know if "electronica with female vocal" meets precisely what you're hoping for, though.

also, although the main vocal is male, it's falsetto, the hook is sung by females, and it's a synthpop classic:

Movie Star -- Róisín Murphy

"All the Stars" by Leona Naess is a good one.

Esthero - Country Livin'
The chorus of that song popped into my head when I read your question.

Shiny Toy Guns' version of Major Tom might fit, though it's more space than stars.

I Am The World Trade Center - "Silent Film Stars"
Kylie Minogue - "Stars"
Sally Shapiro - "Looking At The Stars"

Starseeds - "Starman."

And if you are willing to be very tangential, just about anything else by the Starseeds, for that matter.

Beth Orton - Stars All Seem To Weep
Stereolab - The Stars Our Destination

And while not at all synthpoppy, I'll mention The XX's 'Stars'.

Mistral - Starship 109 Synths! Flamenco! Summerhit in 1978 and still a great song and the clip...

Starry Eyed – Ellie Goulding

Starkey- Stars (Feat. Anneka)
Halou- The Ratio of Freckles to Stars
Elysian Fields- Star

(It's probably stretching it to call all of these synthpop.)
