    Let's hear music that reminds you of sci fi/ Fantasy.

    I got 30 Seconds to Mars and DragonForce. You?

    Sorry to bump, but I wanted to include links. Sorry I'm late.

    This song reminds me of a Yavin 4-Fantasy-Natural Sci Fi- Metropolis type liberation. I think.... Anyways, it's called R-Evolve, and it's by 30 Seconds to Mars.


    Next, we have another 30 Seconds to Mars song. It's called OBLIVION. It is sort of like a Serenity-style-Neo Egyptian-Cyber Rock-Post Apocolyptic thing. Like Dune, Firefly, Imortel, and Omega Man all in one.


    I will post more later.

    A different type of music, grungier, than what I was expecting (although the first one, R-Evolve, is kinda' growing on me).

    I was expecting some of the 'usual' stuff like Pink Floyd's Shine On You Crazy Diamond.

    I was about to get to the Prog. Rock/Metal :)

    The DragonForce is more fantasy than sci fi, I wanted to add.

    Ok, on the topic of Pink Floyd:
    Wish You Were Here

    I was breaking out the ol' vynil las night and started turning Wish You Were Here (The album) and got to the song (the song). I was thinking this was sort of a THX 1138-Matrix-Avalon type epiphany. So, here it goes.

    OOoh.... I love Floyd. And, yes, I have experienced the Floyd + Wizard of Oz mashup. :D A local stereo shop some years back held an event with Oz playing on a giant projector out in the parking lot with Dark Side blasting out of several towers of speakers ringed around the lot. In the middle of the ring must've been about 100~ people sitting on the ground. I do not drink or smoke (or partake of any other vices along those lines) but I am pretty sure the second hand smoke that was hovering like a cloud over the ring was not from cigarettes alone. :ROFLMAO:

    Speaking of the '70s, I always envisioned War's Spill The Wine as being a bit trippy... if there was a remix of the old animated The Hobbit with a rock soundtrack, I could see this being used...

    Rush's "2112" is my favourite!

    Music is "Cyberworld" by X-Ray Dog which, although it's not composed by Bear McCreary who does the music in BSG, every time I hear it it reminds me of BSG because of this cool clip:

    OH YEAH, DON'T WATCH THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN BATTLESTAR GALACTICA TO THE END OF THE THIRD SEASON, ITS GOT SPOILERS IN IT!!!!

    some Alan Parsons music, esp the instrumental 'The Gold Bug' from the Turn of a Friendly Card album. Radiohead sounds SFy to me.

    Surprised nobody has mentioned Hawkwind... lyrics by Brit SF writer Michael Moorcock. Or Blue Oyster Cult. Their first two albums were defnitely a SF scenario. Just hard to figure out what it was.
