Dinosaurs in Music
« on: March 07, 2017, 04:43:45 PM »
If you know a piece of music related to dinosaurs this would be the spot to post it. It could be music from a dinosaur movie or documentary. It could be a song about dinosaurs or even just a music video with dinosaurs. You could even take a song or instrumental piece that was not intended to have anything to do with dinosaurs and explain why it makes you think of them. Just make sure you leave a description of were it came from.

To start things off I'll post 2 of my favorites. The first one is Plains of the Jurassic from WWD BBC by Benjaman Bartlett. Makes me think of a huge herd of saurapods moving acrossed an open field.


The next one is Giant of the Skies from WWD BBC by Benjaman Bartlett. If extinction had a theme song this is it.

"3,000 km to the south, the massive comet crashes into Earth. The light from the impact fades in silence. Then the shock waves arrive. Next comes the blast front. Finally a rain of molten rock starts to fall out of the darkening sky - this is the end of the age of the dinosaurs. The Comet struck the Gulf of Mexico with the force of 10 billion Hiroshima bombs. And with the catastrophic climate changes that followed 65% of all life died out. It took millions of years for the earth to recover but when it did the giant dinosaurs were gone - never to return." - WWD

That Dinosaur Revolution theme is epic. 8)

Time to dust off a favourite from my childhood:



This one is not about a dinosaur per se, but itīs glorious nevertheless.



This one should make up for it. Scientific accuracy and a nice life lesson!

"Dinosaur" by King Crimson is great. Rick Wakeman's "The Battle" is literally about a fight between a Plesiosaurus and an Ichthyosaurs. Also "Brontosaurus" by The Move comes to mind.

Don't know if that counts cause it's the band name, but I really like T. Rex:
