I've written an article about what I think are the ten best science fiction songs of all time:

No prizes for spotting the Blake's 7 actor in the picture.

Rejoice in the sun by Joan Baez from the movie "Silent Running", a bit Eco but still one of my favourites.

And how about 2112 ("twenty-one twelve") by Rush? A whole side of an album telling a story about a struggle of individuality against conformity and mind control in a futuristic society... With some fantastic music

Rush's "Cygnus X-1" is also a great sci-fi song I think

I've never even thought about Sci-Fi music At least not songs, only ever really thought about the themes to films and TV shows

Brian May's song '39', can't be too many songs about Time Dilation out there!

Don't think I've ever heard it. My sister's a Queen fan though, so she might have it somewhere around.

Is that the name of the artist or the song? (I know, total ignorance showing here - did say I'd never thought about it )

I often find myself singing that song, whether I'd recently seen the movie or not.

Many may not know that Iron Maiden have a number of Sci-fi songs.

To Tame a Land was based on Frank Herbert's novel, Dune.

Stranger in a Strange Land takes its title, tho not the story, from the famous Robert Heinlien novel. In fact, Maiden have a bit of a habit of pinching titles. 'Number of the Beast' (Heinlien) was the title track for their mostr famous album, and 'Brave New World' (Huxley) was the title track of their 'reformation' album in 200.

I like Iron Maiden - didn't realise that about them though - this is very educational.

Just thought of another Rush one, a song called "The Body Electric" which was inspired by the film Blade Runner...

It even has a chorus that's sung in binary!

There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that don't!
