Bear McCreary - Samson and Delilah (performed by Shirley Manson)If I had my way
I’d burn this whole building down
Song: Lords of Kobol.
Artist: Bear McCreary (vocals by Raya Yarbrough).
Album: Battlestar Galactica Season 2 Soundtrack.
This song is really, really cool. It’s a prayer from the reboot of Battlestar Galactica in Sinhalese, here put to a tune that’s strangely chilling. Other than that, it’s hard to get a fix on the song’s tone: is it dramatic? Hopeful? Mournful? It’s hard to tell, and could be interpreted as any of those. In the end, though, it’s just a really good song, and that’s what’s most important here.
