All Along The Watchtower: Battlestar Galactica version.

Once upon a time, the internet was a vast, vague, imposing place, where it was difficult to do anything. I mean, you could check your bank balance, the weather, and some other things.

Well, now you can get just about anything. Think of a word; think of a nonsense word, and Google it, you'll find something.

Well, there are two things in this galaxy that I really really love:  Music and Battlestar Galactica. Starbuck is without a doubt my favorite character, and when she died in season 3, heart's broke the world around.

About this time the creators started integrating music as if it were a character of it's own. They recreated Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower, breaking it up and revealing smippets on various episodes that sounded like they were unrelated.

Then, in the season 4 opener, Starbuck comes back and at the end of the episode, we hear the entire piece together. One of the best versions I have ever heard. I DVR'd the episode. I Shazamed the song over and over and nothing ever came back.

I was thinking about it the other day, and guess what? It's on YouTube. STILL trying to find an MP3 version. It's not even on Spotify. Tim Russ (Star Trek: Voyager) desacrates this hymn with Bear McCreary's blessing.

Please Mr. McCreary, release this song in MP3 form.
