Sci-fi Music Mix



"Typical, it's about a bloke who falls for a robot. Say no more"
- Jeff Lynne, liner notes for the song Yours Truly, 2095


I got this album for myself the other day in the bargain bin, quite a happy circumstance since I wanted it all along. So I was thinking, I definitely need to make a sci-fi mix. But I need more than just this, Rocket Man, Space Oddity, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, and Mr. Roboto. I don't have time to fill more in before bed, so help me out!

Follow the mix tag if you haven't been following this blog for the past 6 years to see other amusing mix ideas I've asked about...

oh no! did you make out with a boy from high school in a friend's basement and then later realize he was a complete jerk? because that happened to me. but in time, i came to forgive the floyd. :)

my floyd story is more like "saw the Wall at a far too impressionable age, which freaked me right out". i didn't really make out with any boys in high school. me = huge nerd

Sounds like why I don't listen to them anymore. That and the making out with high school and college boys comment below. *g*

How about Man or Astro Man? Sort of sci fi B-movie surf punk guitar rock stuff. I have a few of their cds somewhere, but can't look around the web just yet cause I'm at work.

I'll follow your mix tags later today too, when I'm not at work. :) I love making mix cds.
