I know this is a an off topic subject, but I found that playing music while star gazing makes the experience better. I personally like the Galaxy map theme from Mass Effect. Sometimes starfox from control options menu is nice to listen too. Does anyone have a favorite space theme music? <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

<p>My current favorite stargazing music is D:Fuse's "People_3 Both Sides of the Picture.Live", disc 2.&nbsp; It's mellow, but has a bit of a beat, not too techno-y, IMO.&nbsp; (Disc&nbsp;1 is more techno-y/trance type stuff, and not what I like&nbsp;listening to when I'm star-hopping)</p><p>For a long time, I liked Peter Gabriel's "Long Walk Home", from the movie, "Rabbit Proof Fence".&nbsp; Especially "Cloudless".&nbsp; Very nice listening.</p><p>(I know, I have eclectic tastes in music&nbsp; <img src="http://sitelife.space.com/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-embarassed.gif" border="0" alt="Embarassed" title="Embarassed" />&nbsp; What can I say???)</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p> </p> </div>
