I tend to assume that the similarities between prior film scores and BSG tracks come down to the temp-love the producers constantly berated themselves for whenever talking about the music. Though, oddly, I've never seen anyone track down the one instance they explicitly cited, where the track "Pegasus" was inspired by a piece by the Psychedelic Furs. Any fans of that band around here who can figure out which song that was?
Sorry to bump such an old thread, but I got to wondering about this myself. Not a fan, but I did a little digging around on YouTube and I'm pretty much certain it was their 1980 piece "India." Have a listen to the first 2:30, then skip to the last 0:20:



That ending with the staccato drumbeat and electric guitar-twang cutoff is pretty much identical to the McCreary version.
Wow, yeah. The influence there is quite obvious. I like it!

I'm currently in the process of mixing various tracks to create thematic-based "suites"
Due to the demands of real life, I've only finished three tracks: "Crossroads"; "The Adama Family"; & "Adama & Roslyn"

I did manage to upload the "Crossroads" edit to youtube:



It's not anything that folk haven't already heard. But hopefully the format will be an enjoyable alternative.

No one's mentioned the amazing similarities between the music we hear during the "Adama's Last Flight" and "Into the Sun" scenes and Stu Phillips?

Which, by the way, were the two best tracks Bear composed for the entire show...
Completely, whole-heartedly disagree. With Colonial sugar on top.

Re: Bear McCreary vs. Other Composers

One of the more shocking instances of stealing from someone else is Clint Mansell's "Requiem for a Dream" soundtrack when compared to Michael Nyman's work in Prospero's Books. However, since Mansell did such a good job with it I can't blame him.
