Halloween-Worth Playlist: The Top 100 SciFi-Themed Songs of All Time
A number of years ago, I produced an Ongoing History of New Music episode called “Space” which looked at how certain alt-rock artists (Bowie, Pixies, Foo Fighters) had a fascination with either space travel or science fiction. Io9.com has expanded on this idea by listing 100 of the greatest of these songs.
It got my attention right away with #99, Rush’s ode to a black hole.
Number one was a bit of a surprise, but perhaps in retrospect, maybe not. And no, it’s not “Space Oddity” by David Bowie.

Was hoping to see Velouria by the Pixies, but at least they got one track in there.
I would have also included Zlad. 🙂
With the Edge running Archive shows running 3 times a week, is there any chance that we could here the OHNM episode you mensioned here. Sounds interesting.
Let me see what I can do.
