Because earworms are for sharing...

The iPod served this up the other day in the car, and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since:



You know, it's been many a year since I watched Cosmos...

Thank you. I listened to the YouTube version and now have my version of that music as well as the Blade Runner music queued in my player.

Sometimes, I watch the show just to hear Sagan's narration... his vocal qualities are soothing and relaxing. And then there is that music....

Me Too, Craig.

As I monitor the university machinery during my night shift, I often times have a Cosmos episode playing on my headphones (as background radiation) while I work.

The music along with talking about... factual stuff... I find rather soothing...

I may not agre with all of Carls' politics (or views on life for that matter), but I don't mind listening to it.

My wife and I just finished re-watching the whole series last month.

As Cond0010 says, I find a lot to disagree with Sagan*, but there's nobody I disagree with more pleasurable to listen to.

* Generally agree with him on the facts, but sometimes his interpretations go beyond the provable. For a guy who doesn't believe in a creator, he's got more reverence for creation than most people in my church.

So do I, probably; so do I... ;)

And Vangelis Papandreou is an artist.

Kristopher,

Thank you very much for that link.

I LOVED that show.

I think my favorite Vangelis theme from that show was "Alpha", though. It was often used in the "starship" scenes.

And "Heaven and Hell" was the #1 reason my dad could never stay awake through an entire episode. Few pieces of music can match that one for sheer---I dunno, majesty. So much of the music on that show was a perfect fit for the subject.

I remember this from when I was a kid growing up in St. Louis. Still one of my favorite songs
