SciFi Songster (and SF Signal contributor) John Anealio, has collected his best genre-related songs and released a CD: Sci Fi Songs!

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.

  1. “The Return of Titus Quinn” inspired by Kay Kenyon’s Bright of the Sky
  2. “Rachel Rosen” inspired by Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep/Blade Runner
  3. “Leodora” inspired by Gregory Frost’s Shadowbridge
  4. “Cylon #6″ inspired by Battlestar Galactica
  5. “Summer Glau” inspired by Joss Whedon’s Firefly/Serenity
  6. “Angels & Vampires” inspired by Anne Rice’s Memnoch the Devil
  7. “Lonesome October Night” inspired by Roger Zelazny’s A Night in the Lonesome October
  8. “Sarene” inspired by Brandon Sanderson’s Elantris
  9. “Merithyn’s Promise” inspired by Elizabeth Haydon’s Requiem for the Sun
  10. “The Millennium Falcon for Christmas” inspired by Star Wars
  11. “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.)

If you want your ears to feel good, you can download the songs at either iTunes or CD Baby, or you can order an actual CD!

Oh, and stay tuned later today for a SciFi Songs CD giveaway!
