The Greatest STAR TREK Mixtape Ever!

.
Wil pops in a new C90 and records the greatest Star Trek mixtape ever.


Ah, the mixtape. Many an hour of my teenage years was spent knocking up themed compilations of chart hits, movie tracks, love songs (to gift, of course), or just my favourite tunes. But I never did make a Star Trek themed mixtape, which is a shame as there's a lot of music out there to include.

By no means am I including every single Star Trek related song there has ever been, oh no, I've hand picked these gems just for your listening pleasure. So sit back, relax and enjoy The Greatest Star Trek Mixtape Ever!

Side A
Track 1: It has to be the original Star Trek Theme Tune. What else could you kick this compilation off with?..



Track 2: A successful mixtape is all about the sequencing, so lets stick in that late 60s theme and add a dash of psychedelia to proceedings with William Shatner's inspired cover of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds...



Track 3: Where would Kirk be without Spock? And isn't it about time we got this party started? What better way than with Leonard Nimoy's The Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins...



Track 4: The party's underway now, and we really have to get this done sooner or later, so...



Track 5: After that strange ending we can segue straight into a moment of madness from Captain Picard. Patrick Stewart breaks out of character to serenade Gene Roddenberry with A Your Adorable...



Track 6: Another Captain, but from a previous mission of his. That is to say it's Scott Bakula, who years before playing Captain Archer appeared in many a Broadway musical, something that was put to good use on Quantum Leap, when he sang Imagine...



Track 7: The Enterprise Captain leads us nicely into the Star Trek: Enterprise Theme Tune. Faith Of The Heart sung by Russell Watson...



Track 8: Are we anywhere near done? No, we're not. Not if Benjamin Sisko has anything to do with it, because The Best Is Yet To Come...



Track 9: We're staying with Vic Fontaine now, and allowing him to introduce Miss Nana Visitor who gives me Fever....



Track 10: And it's the end of Side A. We need the epitome of cool to round of our first half, and there's really only one man for the job. The Shat delivering the goods once again, with the ultimate rendition of Rocket Man...




It's time to spool to the end of the cassette and flip over to the Side B - which can be found here on Page 2.
