I wish I had the good taste and self-restraint to only post mixes of “good” music, or music that I really like. But unfortunately I don’t, and here’s the proof: fifteen tracks of dubious quality on a science fiction theme.
I love science fiction, but this mix is pretty awful. (My apologies to the artists.) Listen at your own risk. Actually one of these songs I kind of like; you can try to guess as you suffer thru the rest, if you choose to actually listen to this mix, which of course you shouldn’t unless you are a glutton for punishment or share my sense of perversity. (My apologies to the listener in any case.)
I’ve been collecting music with science fiction themes for a while. Putting together a “best of” mix is a daunting task. So a year ago, more or less, I compiled a “worst of” mix, which I gave away as boobie prize at my science fiction reading club. But even a “worst of” mix presents a challenge, as I discovered. You see, there’s (at least) two kinds of bad. There’s perversely-interesting bad, and then there’s just-plain-boring bad, and who wants to listen to that? Today’s mix is derived from that earlier effort and hopefully focuses on the former. Still no excuse.
