The first part of the Weekend Playlist is over, and we’re already up to six weeks! Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve gotten a number of recommendations from people that build upon the lists that we’ve put together, and I’m very happy to see the input. The current plan is to run in five week batches, with something easy in between, and this week, we’re going with the recommendations that you have submitted in the comments. Here’s a selection of what we liked from the comments. (There’s a lot, but here’s some of the best!)
For our first week, where we looked at Songs inspired by SF/F Books, we got a lot of recommendations:
In our Songs About Gaming post, SF Signal Regular John Stevens provided the following:
In Songs About Star Wars….
John Williams is the Man
When we profiles Jonathan Coulton, tam brought up “Mr. Fancy Pants”, and Paul noted that his all time favorite is “The Future Soon “(also one of mine!)
Finally, two weeks ago, we looked at songs about Zombies, where we had the following recommendations:
Thanks to those who brought up other songs that we didn’t cover (or know about!). There’s a wide world of music here, and it would be a fruitless effort to attempt to make every list completely comprehensive. Don’t worry, the next five weeks will have more songs about all different types of geek!
