    I have no idea if anyone else has heard of this song,which was made by Dutch Band “Star One” but I wondered if anyone knew of any other songs performed by Popular bands to do with sci-fi?

    Here are the lyrics to the song,and if you cannot guess which show the song is about by the Bands name,then these lyrics should be a dead giveway,one popular member of this shows crew arguing with another…………btw if you like Rock it’s actually a catchy tune too

    “Intergalactic Space Crusaders”

    [Damian:]
    We’re on our way to a prison in space
    Our last flight, the final phase
    I was betrayed and now I’ve been caught
    As the brains of a massive fraud

    [Russell:]
    I can’t remember, am I insane?
    My mind is blank cos they emptied my brain
    I will return, I will be back
    I will unite us and we will attack

    [Damian:]
    I don’t care about your plans and schemes
    Don’t give a damn ’bout your righteous dreams
    All that I do, I do for myself
    I never cared for anyone else

    [Russell:]
    We have to save them, we have to try
    We can’t just watch while the innocent die
    Let’s steal this ship and start our crusade
    Powerful allies will come to our aid

    Who on earth do you think that you are
    Without me you wouldn’t get far
    I’ve had enough of your private war
    Why are we fighting, what is it all for?

    [Russell:]
    To right the wrong, to fight the good fight
    Living like you just wouldn’t be right
    I am the leader, I have the skills
    Either you leave or you yield to my will

    [Russell:]
    Our strong bond couldn’t keep us apart

    “Seven fighters” should pretty much do it for those only passingly familiar with the show. Anyone heard of The Magnificent Seven Space Samurai?

    Okay, here are a couple of Iron Maiden songs. I hope it doesn’t prove too tough to guess which television series these songs reference. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    [b]The Prisoner[/b]

    [i]On the run kill to eat
    You’re starving now you’re dead on your feet
    Going all the way nature’s beast
    Do what I want as I please

    Run fight to breathe it’s tough
    Now you see me now you don’t
    Break the walls I’m coming out

    Not a prisoner, I’m a free man
    And my blood is my own now
    Don’t care where the past was
    I know where I’m going … out

    If you kill me it’s self defence
    If I kill you then I call it vengeance
    Spit in your eye I will defy
    You’ll be afraid when I call out your name

    I’m not a number I’m a free man
    I’ll live my life how I want to
    You’d better scratch me from your black book
    ‘Cos I’ll run rings round you.[/i]

    [b]Back in the Village[/b]

    [i]Turn the spotlights on the people,
    Switch the dial and eat the worm.
    Take your chances, kill the engine,
    Drop your bombs and let it burn.

    White flags shot to ribbons,
    The truce is black and burned,
    Shellshock in the kitchen,
    Tables overturned.

    CHORUS
    Back in the village again,
    In the village.
    I’m back in the village again.

    Throwing dice now, rolling loaded,
    I see sixes all the way.
    In a black hole, and I’m spinning
    As my wings get shot away.

    No breaks on the inside,
    Paper cats and burning barns,
    There’s a fox among the chickens,
    And a killer in the hounds.

    Questions are a burden
    And answers are a prison for oneself
    Shellshock in the kitchen
    Tables start to burn.

    CHORUS

    But still we walk into the valley
    And others try to kill the inner flame
    We’re burning brighter than before
    I don’t have a number, I’M A NAME!

    CHORUS[/i]

    Wrong!…the song Spoookie posted is about the show Blakes 7

    as for the Iron Maiden songs..i don’t recall what they are about right off.. but heres an easy one for people to guess….

    “The Eye of Ra”

    [Robert:]
    Far away in outer space
    A traveller from another world left his dying race
    He found our planet, full of life
    In the body of a little boy he could survive

    And Ra will live forever
    He gains his powers from afar
    And built a gateway to the stars

    [Damian:]
    I have finally found the key
    To chart a course to the other side of the galaxy
    I need to find the seventh sign
    Carved into the cover stones of an ancient time

    And Ra will live forever
    He draws his powers from afar
    And built a gateway to the stars

    [Russell:]
    Unaware of our coming fate
    We disappear through the ancient gate
    We arrive in a desert land
    And set up camp on the burning sand

    [Floor:]
    Behold!

    [Russell:]
    A thousand slaves
    Mining ores in the planet’s caves
    They give us shelter from the storm
    Then Ra appears in a human form

    [Floor:]
    Ooh, up there in space
    The Eye of Ra is watching over us

    [Russell:]
    A tall ship descends from the sky
    Lasers flare and many men die
    A bloody battle has begun
    We must destroy this ‘king of the sun’

    [Floor:]
    Ooh, up there in space
    The Eye of Ra is watching over us
    Ooh, an alien race
    The Eye of Ra is watching over us

    [Floor:]
    Ooh, up there in space
    The Eye of Ra is watching over us
    Ooh, an alien race
    The Eye of Ra is watching over us

    [All:]
    We have found the seventh sign
    Down in the catacombs
    When the seven points align
    They will lead us all back home

    We have found the seventh sign
    Down in the catacombs
    When the seven points align
    They will lead us all back home

    We have found the seventh sign
    Down in the catacombs
    When the seven points align
    They will lead us all back home

    We have found the seventh sign
    Down in the catacombs
    When the seven points align
    They will lead us all back home

    Songs…. What about that one by Mike and the Mechanics?

    Silent Running

    Take the children and yourself and hide out in the cellar.
    By now the fighting will be close at hand.
    Don’t believe the church and state and everything they tell you.
    Believe in me, I’m with the high command.

    Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running,
    can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running,
    can you hear me calling you?

    There’s a gun and ammunition just inside the doorway.
    Use it only in emergency.
    Better you should pray to God, the father,
    and the spirit will guide you and protect you from up here.

    Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running,
    can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running,
    can you hear me calling you?

    Swear allegiance to the flag. Whatever flag they offer.
    Never hint at what you really feel.
    Teach the children quietly for someday sons and daughters,
    will rise and fight while we stood still.

    Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running,
    can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running,
    can you hear me calling you?

    Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running,
    can you hear me calling you?

    Can you hear me running?
    (can you hear me calling you?)
    (can you hear me)
    Hear me calling you.
    (Can you hear me running?)

    Hear me running back
    (Can you hear me running?)
    Hear me running
    Calling you, calling you.

    You might be joking around too, but… I know, I know it’s Blake’s 7. Technically I’m not wrong as I didn’t answer the question. I merely indicated that 7 is a hint and then jokingly asked another question, “Anyone heard of The Magnificent Seven Space Samurai?” Not that, to my knowledge, the Seven Samurai and the Magnificent Seven really was turned into a space opera by that name.

    I’m not sure if anyone ever heard of this one song, but it’s called “The Fantastic Four” by Ray Wall Band. This song is so campy and bad that they took it off the movie album and put it right up on iTunes. So if you ever need a good chuckle, go download it.

    Anyway, The Bloodhound Gang did one song on there new album in which they give nods to all there favorite Sci-Fi shows. Even piano part of the music, is just them playing the tune from the New BSG (that is played in every first 30 seconds of every episode) backwards then fowards.

    “I’m The Least You Could Do”

    It always sucks refolding the kind of map
    Needed when i get stuck where the sun don’t shine the fact
    Is if i just shut up my rubbered stamp could flag you as dumb-(Hitchhicker’s Guide to the Galaxy)

    It ain’t your mind you’re givin’ me a piece of
    As it don’t take einstein to know that’s just obscene but (Farscape)
    It’s been buck rogers’ time since i hit other than rock bottom (Buck Rogers)

    Even the odds of having you against me
    With your crotchless jihad on blue balls evidently (crotchless jihad referring to the cylons on BSG)
    Are all mighty good god so angel dust my soul like james brown

    Street leagl whore hauling so much stunning ass
    Sell yourself short like bridget at the bunny ranch
    Do it all fours the satisfaction of getting fouled

    I’m the least you could do
    If only life were as easy as you

    I’m the least you could do
    If only life were as easy as you

    I would still get screwed

    I don’t care if getting under someone that’s
    Beneath you fits the m.o. of conundrum as
    You reckoned this was just a fancy word for rubbers

    I aim to get a bang out of working your
    Weak spot that sets the bar so low just nerve can score
    With no respect since oddly danger feels like pay dirt (Smallvile)

    I’m the least you could do
    If only life were as easy as you

    I’m the least you could do
    If only life were as easy as you

    I’m the least you could do
    If only life were as easy as you

    If only
