Battlestar Galactica's Bear McCreary RAWKS!

Writer: Head Geek Furious

Composer extraordinaire, Bear McFrakinreary is amazeballs to the maxybigdaforce! And here is proof, motherfrakers. The insanely talented creator of all things cool, and probably the greatest TV soundtrack in the history of humanity, has put out a few videos of himself just jamming the scruffy lookin' nerf herders off some of his best BSG (I mean the newer, better BSG) tracks on the piano.  He has been doing this in support of his piano songbook (that you can buy on Amazon by clicking that link; no I am not receiving anything in return for this promotion, but I wish I was).

I am somehow a month behind the universe in discovering this bit of awesomebunnies and think you should all be in on it too. Check it out.  I rank each performance from o to 100, for your convenience:

Prelude to War: 107 out of 100

Battlestar Sonatica: 100 out of 100

Something Dark Is Coming: 100 out of 100

Elegy: 104 out of 100

You know what? Why not end it on the live performance of the McCreary's brothers and crew doing All Along the Watchtower, from BSG seasons 3 and 4. Katee Sackhoff, who played Starbuck on the show, plays the piano with Bear at the beginning.


  1. oh boy that is incredible.

  2. Hadn't seen that. Amazing. Thanks for posting the article.

  3. Preule to War is perfect!

  4. Ugh I obviously meant Prelude to War.

  5. I recognize all but Elegy. It is beautiful.

  6. Glad you all like it. I am something of a music nut... and a geek... so this makes me lose my shizznit. ;)

  7. Bear makes me feel totally inadequate as a human being.
