Star Trek themes in real situations.

A random thread: do you often listen to Star Trek music in a situation, and you find out it actually fits it well?
If so, what themes do you find most useful in different scenarios?

ie-Final Flight from Nemesis while jogging?

Re: Star Trek themes in real situations.

When I first read the title, I thought this was gonna be about dramatic themes, you know, story elements.

I didn't know we'd be discussing music.

I'll try to think of something and come back later.

And I failed epically: I should've entitled it "Star Trek music in real situations.

Listening to Ron Jones while driving makes it seem like I'm off to save the world!

Yes, every time i'm in a fight for my life against my best friend, i'm humming the music of Amok Time.

I do listen to too much Trek music in the car, though.

Re: Star Trek themes in real situations.

I can sometimes imagine hearing the opening (or main) theme to Star Trek XI whenever I'm getting ready for a long drive somewhere.

Then I kick right into the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" as soon as I hit the highway.

Same.

To answer the OP's question: no.
I rarely listen to a show/movie/game's music while not viewing/playing it, because in most cases, even if it's a very good piece it usually doesn't work on its own.
Exceptions: "The Rains of Castamere" from GoT and the main theme from MGS2.

Re: Star Trek themes in real situations.

I will hum TOS music, sing Faith of the Heart and probably a few other Trek riffs to go with different discussions. Of course my audience knows the music as well as me.

Any time, any place is good for the Amok Time battle music.

Re: Star Trek themes in real situations.

Jay Chattaway's Ressikan Flute solo from "Inner Light" is good music to chillout to.
