    This is a very cool idea. Will be nice to have it all consolidated in one place.

    Nice thread idea. I'm liking the music so far, so that's a plus, I guess.

    I really liked this last song, every time I heard it I wanted to sarcastically chuckle.

    Nice list. Ugh... I really hated those Janelle Monáe songs. My favorite (though not played on the show) was "Gravity" by Embassy from the SGU comic-con trailer. Although that "Breathe" song wasn't too bad either... although I hated it the first time I watched Air Part 3... probably just because it was one of the first times in Stargate history that a song like that completely rose to the foreground... being unexpected and different and all...

    Actually good thinking, I'll throw that in too

    This is actually one of the little annoying things about the show I would change. The show in general is growing on me but this "soft rock montage" nonsense seems to be appearing so often in every other show this season that I'd rather not see it here as well.

    Seriously, just watch any new network show this season and wait for it. There's about a 75% chance that at some point the "soft rock montage" will make an appearance in any given episode. The danger zones of particular note are the beginning and the end of episodes. This latest SGU had it in both...

    There was also that song that played over the Wray/Sharon scenes.

    Which I'll edit in as soon as someone tells me what it was

    But the whole point was to bookend the episode and bring everything full circle with the unifying theme. That theme being that life aboard the Destiny, though it may have its moments, kind of sucks. It emphasizes the "slice of life" feel of the story.

    If there's a thematic reason as to why the song is there, I don't really have an issue with it.

    I actually thought that the music worked well in "Life" as it really tied the episode together (although it did seem kind or... forced? maybe?). Besides that, the episode was a freakin' chair fest between Wray's ugly red chair and the Ancient chair on Destiny.

    They're doing it to be hip and trendy and coincide with what the networks are doing, except once the 'soft rock montage' trend simmers down within a few years, it will be added to the list of things that are considered 'signs SGU has become dated' when we look back at the reruns.

    I hope that's what happens, anyway. I dislike this trend. While some of the music in SGU has worked for me so far, DigiFluid brought up a good point in another thread about how forced it seems. Plus, the Janelle Monae thing in particular... really rubbed me the wrong way. As soon as I heard she'd be in the episode during old, old spoilers I imagined the worst possible ways to do it; well, this was one of them. Thankfully, it wasn't the worst. Allow me to give a brief example of what that would have been:

    ELI: So we should start getting to know as many people as we can, you know, get to know everyone on the ship and all.

    SCOTT: Yeah, that's a good idea, go make friends, Eli. There's one for you now.

    ELI: Whoa! That's Janelle Monae! Too-freaking-cool! What's she doing here, anyway?

    YOUNG: These are the wrong people, in the wrong place. But at least we brought entertainment.

    ...thankfully that didn't happen...
    If you've seen a Jeff O'Connor or a JeffZero or a Jeff Zero or a JeffZeroConnor elsewhere on the net, there's a considerable chance it's me.

    I agree. I just don't think that most of the songs chosen fit the style of Stargate. One of the few sci-fi shows ever that I've liked with contemporary music is Firefly, and still it's original music written for the show. I hope to see less of this as SGU progress, but my hopes are low.

    Here's a Youtube playlist of all of these songs. As you update your list, I'll update mine.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the song that played over the end of 1.11 "Space" was Rob Thomas' "Now Comes the Night", was it not?
