So Star Wars does indeed have a killer soundtrack.
I love it, hell half my alert tones of my iPhone are Star Wars related but it does not have the monopoly on thematic awesomeness, nope it doesn't and here are some other faves of mine for your listening pleasure!
I don't know if Red Dwarf is shown outside the UK but it has been on for years here and has the catchiest theme tune ever......"It's cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere........" the kind of tune that sticks in your head for good reasons!
The music by Vangelis on the Blade Runner soundtrack gives me goosebumps, its so atmospheric and sums up the film perfectly.
I haven't watched the reboot but the first few series of the X-Files are sci-fi gold for me and that them tune is eerie as anything.
Classic music is not my thing but I do make a huge exception for this soundtrack, the contradiction of the classical music against the spacey goings on (tech speak!!) is iconic and haunting.
A lot of people haven't seen Sunshine but it is a great film and the soundtrack is just brilliant. Check it out!
Notable mentions also go to Doctor Who, Star Trek and Firefly!
What is your favourite sci-fi tune?
