Interstellar Jukebox

Hey Folks,

As per John "SF Signal" DeNardo's suggestion, I'm going to start doing a weekly "Mind Meld" type post here at Sci-Fi Songs called The Interstellar Jukebox. Here's the lowdown:

Each week, I will present a musical question to you. If you feel like you have something to offer, please write up a response and send it to me. Here is my e-mail:

Please include a short one or two sentence bio and a link to your website/blog in the e-mail. Check out this recent SF Signal Mind Meld post for examples.

As of now, my questions will ask you to search your iTunes library for song titles that contain certain, key Sci-Fi/Fantasy-ish words. For example, if the question was:

What is your favorite "Space" Song?

Search iTunes (or whatever you use) for "Space" and see what you get. My query yielded 24 songs. If I chose "Space Dye Vest" by Dream Theater, I would then write a bit about that song in particular, the album that is is from, or Dream Theater in general. I also might write about Dream Theater's influence on me as a musician, writer, or creative person. You can really write whatever you want, but this is a good starting point.

Besides just being fun, I think that this will be an excellent way to engage our community and start an interesting weekly conversation. It will also help to cross-promote each others' blogs. I'm asking various writers, bloggers, podcasters, and musicians to contribute, so hopefully everyone will be exposed to a new audience.

If you are interested in contributing, e-mail me at or DM me on Twitter.
