Ever heard of Muzak? Generic "smooth jazz" type covers of pop music piped in softly in some department stores and elevators, sometimes referred to as "elevator music". You really don't hear it much these days, but back in the day it was common. Battlestar Muzaktica was playing in the background of that hilarious restroom scene in Colonial Day when Baltar is interrupted by the president in the restroom when he was giving that reporter "an exclusive" in the stall. The inspiration for the title might be a reference to an old Incubus instrumental "Battlestar Scralatchtica"

Thanks for the info... that makes more sense now. I recognised the piece but didn't understand the title.

Finally got mine today.

Has there been a translation for 'Wander My Friends'? Or the lyrics even.Lyrics for “Wander My Friends” according to the info that came with the CD.


(in Gaelic)

Siulaigi a chairde, siulaidh liom
Mar cheo an tsleibhe uaine ag
imeacht go deo
D’ainneoin ar dtuirse leanfam an tsli
Thar chnoic is thar ghleannta
go deireadh na scrib’.

Seo libh a chairde is canaidh liom
Lionaigi’n oiche le greann is le sport
Seo slainte na gcarad ata imithe uainn
Mar cheo an tsleibhe uaine,
iad imithe go deo

(Translation according to the same info)

Wander my friends, wander with me
Like the mist on the green mountain, moving eternally
Despite our weariness,
we’ll follow the road
Over hills and valleys
to the end of the journey

Come on my friends and sing with me
Fill the night with joy and sport
Here’s a health to the friends who have gone from us
Like the mist of the green mountain,
Gone forever


I’m not into opera so I skipped this track, but the translation for “Battlestar Operatica” (which is in Italian) is rather entertaining. :D

Woe upon your Cylon heart
There’s a toaster in your head
And it wears high heels

Number Six calls to you
The Cylon Detector beckons
Your girlfriend is a toaster

Woe upon your Cylon heart
Alas, disgrace! Alas, sadness and misery!

The toaster has a pretty dress
Red like its glowing spine
Number Six whispers
By your command

Just got my CD from Amazon (through GW's link, of course ;) )

OMG. .such good music from a TV show! Never realized how much of the atmosphere from the show was due to the haunting music. Having trouble with my 12-year old though, as he wants it for himself. No way! :p

Hee - mom deserves to keep this for herself. :D

Isn't it wonderful? I got my CD's on Friday - so glad I ordered both the mini-series and the S1 CD as I love both of them. I spent all weekend listening to them and reading the liner notes. :D

Bear said at the BSG Con this past weekend that when they showed the producers the rough cut of this scene he used an Aria by Mozart from Marriage of Figaro for music and they really liked the music and just wanted to us that. He said he wanted to do something new and not have Mozart in space - so he wrote the new Aria - when the vocals were rehearsing it for the recording one of them said that it sounded like something from The Marriage of Figaro - it was then that he knew he had written the right music.
