Star Ship theme songs

Star ship theme songs:
USS Enterprise

Death Star

Does the TARDIS count as a spaceship?


Sarah Brightman - I lost my heart to a starship trooper

We Built this City (on Rock and Roll). :cool::smiley:

Deep Purple - Space Trucking

Of course David Bowie - Space Oddity

(here performed by astronaut Chris Hadfield in actual space, one of the coolest things to have ever happened IMHO)

and Peter Schilling’s sequel - Major Tom

Starship Trooper by Yes.

“Thus Spake Zarathustra” and “The Blue Danube” were not written to be star ship theme songs, but post-Kubrick, they might as well be.

Firefly’s Serenity had this Bluesy one by Sonny Rhodes.

Composed by John Williams, as part of the soundtrack for The Force Awakens:

Scherzo for X-Wings

Pink Floyd - Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun

Death Star


The Millennium Falcon had a theme song too.

Telstar wasn’t a star ship, but at least was a spacecraft.

I prefer “Interstellar Overdrive.”

Star Fleet – Brian May

Space Station #5 – Montrose

More John Williams I believe: Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Montrose- Space Station #5.

Dammit!** blondebear!**

I took too long listening to various versions. Here is a live version from 1974. Ronnie Montrose on guitar and a young Sammy Hagar belting out the vocals, under all that hair.

It’s not a Star Ship, but mention should be made of the disaster that was Via Galactica, a big-budget Broadway Science Fiction Musical that bombed spectacularly, becoming the first show to lost $1 million. Surprisingly, Raul Julia, Irene Cara, and Broadway veteran Virginia Vestoff were in the cast. It ran seven performances before closing.

The entire side 2 of the Jefferson Starship album Blows Against The Empire.

If we extend to satellites then Billy Bragg’s A new England

I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them but they were only satellites
It’s wrong to wish on space hardware
I wish, I wish, I wish you’d care

Also lots of stuff by Hawkwind

Forbidden Planet

Battlestar Galactica (1978) Yes, Stu Phillips was jumping on John Williams’ bandwagon, but he did a good job.

Battlestar Galactica (2004) More soulful, but not as epic.

Pioneers over c by Van der Graaf Generator!
Sadly, in the lyrics the launch date was in 1983. But the song does date from 1970…
