Either you've all missed the most obvious pick or have no taste...
If you were planning to suggest Bowie, I may mock you forever.
Jeff Wayne man!

Ullaaaaaaa
Easy answer: I don't own that :P
Easy question: Why not?
It scared me when I was a kid.
It is *entirely* your fault that I have 'Eve of the War' running through my head and even more your fault that I have just order the CD!
I have two questions. Who is Jeff Wayne, and what does 'Ullaaaaaa' have to do with SF?
You don't know who Jeff Wayne is? You really don't have a clue about *any* music pre-1990 do you?

War of the Worlds you f001!
That looks so bad it's not even funny...
:p

Again with the 'Niall has no taste' theme.

'War of the Worlds' is very good. Admittedly nothing Jeff Wayne has done since has been any good at all (erg - Sparticus with Catharine Zeta Jones *shudder*) - but Richard Burton as narrator = \0/
what does 'Ullaaaaaa' have to do with SF?

Bloody n00bies.
Elitist scum.
Tempting as it is to offload all knowledge to Google, I can't believe you didn't know "Ulla" was from War of the Worlds. CLUELESS N00B!
ZOMG!
No really, stop kidding us around Niall.

Anyway, I've finished my collection of stuff. I'll pop a link in here when it propogates to my lj feed.
ooh, it's the futyar and it's all musical
Niall has no taste:

HTH HAND
well...

And now to join you in the madness.
Cross-post this to instant_fanzine, I say.

And I did not know you were a fan of gay dad - that's scary :)

I might do a meta linking-to-everyone's list when Alex has posted his. Maybe even a poll! :)

And I did not know you were a fan of gay dad - that's scary :)

'Fan' might be overstating it! Although I suppose I do own the second album that nobody paid any attention too. They have a couple of good songs.

I saw them live when I was still at school. They were quite rockin', if memory serves...
Oooh, am very tempted to join in and create a compilation significantly different from what everyone else has chosen... :)
Hoggy will almost certainly hate it.
Hate engines to full power! Prep the mock cannons! Launch all Anti-Wronghead defences!
The only one i'd add:

The Chemical Brothers - Come With Us ("Come with us ... and
leave your earth behind!")

Well, and i've got loads of techno-type music that would fit, i expect.
