Thought of this while running errands this morning. I have a bunch of random songs that remind me of Star Trek
even though the songs themselves have nothing to do with outer space or exploration. For example, whenever I hear "You Are the Woman" by Firefall, I think of the scene from The Motion Picture
in which Kirk informs Decker he's being relieved of command. I don't know why. I've just always associated the two. Maybe it's because the Enterprise
is the woman Kirk's always dreamed of, but I don't actually know.
Here are some others:
"All Out of Love" (Air Supply) - Captain Esteban and USS Grissom
"Glory of Love" (Peter Cetera) - Khan Hoisting Chekov with one arm
"I Can't Make You Love Me" (Bonnie Raitt) - Enterprise
warping away before Reliant
Don't ask me to explain these. The only one that I can make any sense out of is the song by Air Supply. One of my friends from medical school is a man named Esteban Modad. I vaguely recall hearing "All Out of Love" several times on the radio during the first few weeks after we met and associated his first name with Esteban from TSFS. Yes, it's weird.
