I figured out why they gave Sheppard such a crappy car for this episode. All of the licensed music they had! Manson, Rage Against the Machine, and all the others that escape me right now. But of course the Johnny Cash song for Shep at the end was quite appropriate, and since it was Johnny I don't mind.

And the teaser for Enemy at the Gate has me salivating, which is no small feat for this season.

You didn't recognize "Sympathy for the Devil" by the Rolling Stones? :jack_new_anime25:

The begining was like an episode of csi which was great because it was so different I rather liked this episode and the ending was really good.

I did, but it was towards the beginning and that was one of the songs I didn't recall as I was writing the original post. Nobody is perfect okay? ;)

The use of the music was awesome, but I think the best moments were the Stones and Cash songs. Really fit the mood.

This episode had all kinds of great music in it, but I want that western-y theme that played when Sheppard was driving towards the trailer near the end! Was that just something created specifically for the episode, or does that exist on a CD or as a download somewhere that I could get it?

It was a Johnny Cash song. (That was a Johnny Cash poster he rolled up from his office.)

Johnny Cash's cover of Neil Diamond's "Solitary Man."

I know have it on a loop on Youtube right now. Great, great song that fit the character so well, especially since he's a Cash fanatic.

I enjoyed the music throughout, but I got a real kick out of the "Sympathy for the Devil" scene.

Nah, not that one, although that was pretty awesome. I mean the actual twangy western movie sounding stuff that they played throughout the episode (I didn't realize they did until they started replaying it).

I tripped when I heard Beautiful People from Marilyn Manson on Vegas. That is one group I never imagined to have a song on a SG show. Personally, I would have gone with Rob Zombie Super Beast or Meet The Creeper. But I don't think they could have chosen a better Marilyn Manson song.

Yeah the Johnny Cash song was perfect for the ending sequence. However and I mentioned this in a different thread. I loved Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson for the Wraith Scene. So fitting on multiple levels.

The episode Vegas was downright fantastic! I loved every aspect of it, the music was so well chosen; the way it was shot, the sets, the actors, the cameos by Brad Wright, poker pro Todd Brunson, Atlantis composer Joel Goldsmith, and MGM exec Charlie Cohen. Thank you Robert Cooper! Just absolutely awesome! It has replaced my favorite for this season! Vegas freaking ROCKED!!!

Music was excellent, and perfectly placed. In some ways it made it all the more tragic, esp. the Cash and Stone tunes. I really felt for the Wraith ('Spike'), and his situation - an ancient soul trapped behind enemy lines, trying to blend in, doing whatever he could to survive as he waited, and hoped, for rescue. Very sad. And Solitary Man for Sheppard...well, it goes without saying how that made me feel.

Good episode...great music...although it depressed the the hell out of me.

I don't remember loving Shep as much as during the end of this episode, and he was dying! but it was one of the best dying scenes on TV and it wouldn't be without the Solitary man!

Agreed. There's been some good death scenes before, but this was one of the best. Got to love the Man in Black.

Dude, as a lifetime Manson fan, I was STOKED beyond stoked to hear that Manson was in that episode (I dont watch Atlantis regularly....soorrry), but I watched this one.

It showed that the producers are willing to jump into controversial and hardcore places. I mean, bringing in Manson shows stones...if only hed been a guest star at some point.

Tell me he wouldnt make an excellent Goa'uld....hes got the ego of one anyways. Lafffffs.

Cool to see my points of interest intersect that way.

P.S. Ironically, the song 'Sympathy for the Devil' was used in a short movie for BMW that had manson at the end shouting at Gary Oldmans devil. Funny as hell.

I was a little upset that they didn't use "Who are You" at all. I mean they were going for a CSI feel right? They shoulda done the credits in the same style with that song. It would have made the show 100% perfect for me.

Well, I loved the use of Manson 's music but that wasn't exactly unexpected. Some of this board's posters have suggested them before. Gothic look and using Marilyn Manson's sound isn't a a big jump of imagination. Besides, the crew described the Wraith as the Marilyn Manson's since season 1 (For instance, Francks did).

For some reason there is two kinds of music I associate with the Wraith:
Metal and..... Classic. Both show a large range of ( human?) emotion.

A Wraith who likes Metal and the Rolling Stones...AWESOME! "Sympathy for the Devil" fit the Wraith quite well, especially since we've never learned any of there names. You know, if they didn't want to kill us, they'd be pretty awesome to have at a party, especially for magic tricks. As for the death scene, solitary man fit it perfectly. A Wraith who likes good music...Someone should make a title for him. "The Prince of Darkness"-oh wait, that's Ozzy.

Loved the choice of music, definitly a great chance from the standard episodes. Nice homage to Johnny Cash, especially since Col. John Shep at Atlantis has a Johnny Cash Poster on his wall above his bed.

"Beautiful People" is probably my fav Manson song, worked brilliantly for that scene.

Hmmm, maybe Joel Goldsmith wrote this? Even on ImDB, there are only 3 musical credits for this episode other than Joel. Solitary Man, Sympathy for the Devil and Beautiful People.

The music was really fitting, and made a significant contribution to the standard of the episode. I expect someone had a good time choosing it. "Beautiful People" was a particularly witty choice; "Sympathy for the Devil" was apt and it's a classic; "Solitary Man is a song I'd never heard before but Cash's voice is awesome and that song lifted the death scene from being merely good and poigniant to being heart-rending and one of the best death's I've seen on TV.

(I love a good death.)

After lots and LOTS of searching,
lythiasrose managed to find a post on Joe Mallozzi's Blog, which has STATED that "Joel Goldsmith wrote everything except the three songs we bought".

Three songs being Beautiful People, Solitary Man and Sympathy for the Devil.

Hope this helps.

yeah, the music choices were spot on for this episode ... i always think of the wraith as goth/metallers anyway ... going on that premise though, i'm surprised they didn't use HIM's version of 'solitary man'.

^ Cash's version suits better for the feelings and also Sheppards' character. Or I think it does and what other people think doesn't matter ;D Only one problem with the song, and it is that every time I hear it, I remember the dying scene and with that the whole episode and with that why I was so upset when they canceled SGA. Just when I felt it was getting back to the track!

Wraith as goth/metallers, dunno. But they look like metallers, Spike especially... And according to Myhre's Nemi, the goth live to be picky and never take off their top hats, that sounds rather wraithy. Not top hats but... :P ;)
