I have been scouring the web today looking for techno versions of the star trek theme. Unfortunately for me I already have all the good ones. Everything else can be found on youtube.com with a poorly slapped together video montage to go along with it and you can’t easily extract the audio out of these so why bother.

I do have quite a collection of trek themed songs in all genres. Which I had shared over at ScifiSlacker.com quite a while ago. All I have to do now is update the list for you all (hope to do that soon in another post).

Some other sites with similar lists include:

Robert Hazard, 59, the Philadelphia-bred rock troubadour who wrote the pop anthem “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” died unexpectedly Tuesday night after surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

Robert Hazard and the Heroes, born out of the late-1970s punk movement, were a fixture on the local Philly bar scene through the mid-1980s.

One night in a motel in Delaware, Mr. Hazard sat in a bathtub and in 15 minutes wrote “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” a sprightly pop tune covered in 1983 by Cyndi Lauper. Labeled a feminist anthem, it shot to No. 1. Miley Cyrus’ remake is included on her new album, Breakout.

Scientists are now saying that the fat found around the hips and thighs may actually protect you against getting the disease. So it turns out […]
