Star Trek rediscovery: a real score


Whether or not I buy into CBS All Access, I will probably be buying this soundtrack. The music of Trek – except for the abomination of Enterprise – has always been hand in hand with it’s basic message of boundless optimism and grand adventure, about journeys rather than destinations.

For no other reason than I love it, here is my favorite musical segment of all Trek: the Battle in the Mutara Nebula.

Seven songs

I was tagged by Willow, to list seven songs I am into right now. In no particular order:

Hail to the Geek by Deaf Pedestrians
Unwell by Matchbox Twenty
Into the Ocean by Blue October
The Ballad of Serenity (Main Theme)
All Along The Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix
The Adventure by Angels & Airwaves
Wish Upon A Dog Star by Satellite Party

I am weighted towards recent songs, mainly because I only really got back into music this past year. I still rarely listen to music, mainly just in teh car, and since moving to Marshfield I don’t do that much daily driving.

I am supposed to tag others with this meme, but I’d rather just invite anyone to list their seven in comments.

UPDATE: Don and Mark chime in – and since Friday was List Day, Mark’s doing a Heist Movie theme, too. Don thoughtfully provided MP3s, shaming me, as I was originally gonna put YouTube links in, but I got lazy.

Dennou Coil OP

I’m watching the Ureshi sub, which provides translit/translate of the song. I am transcribing both below by hand:

daremo ga sagashiteru
dareka wo sagashiteru
te wo nobaseba itsudemo
aru hazu no nukumori wa
osonai hi no maboroshi
mabushisugite mitsumeru koto mo
dekinai taiyo
hikari ga afureru kono michi ni
itsumo kage wa hitotsu
asu wa soko ni aru no daro

everyone is looking for…
…looking for someone
whenever you stretch your hands
the warmth that should be there
is an illusion of your childhood
a sun that’s shining so brightly
to be looked upon
on this street, where the light is overflowing
there’s always one shadow…
The future is probably there.
