John Anealio’s SciFi Songs CD
Anealio’s music can be classified as folk rock, but that sounds to me like something old people listen to…and I’m not old, dammit. You can sample the songs here. Here’s the track listing along with their inspirations.
- “The Return of Titus Quinn” inspired by Kay Kenyon’s Bright of the Sky
- “Rachel Rosen” inspired by Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep/Blade Runner
- “Leodora” inspired by Gregory Frost’s Shadowbridge
- “Cylon #6″ inspired by Battlestar Galactica
- “Summer Glau” inspired by Joss Whedon’s Firefly/Serenity
- “Angels & Vampires” inspired by Anne Rice’s Memnoch the Devil
- “Lonesome October Night” inspired by Roger Zelazny’s A Night in the Lonesome October
- “Sarene” inspired by Brandon Sanderson’s Elantris
- “Merithyn’s Promise” inspired by Elizabeth Haydon’s Requiem for the Sun
- “The Millennium Falcon for Christmas” inspired by Star Wars
- “Grasping for the Wind” inspired by all of the Sci-Fi Bloggers
If you ask me, the best song by far is “Summer Glau”. (And I’m not just saying that because I wrote the lyrics. OK, yes I am.)
Oh, and stay tuned later today for a SciFi Songs CD giveaway!
