"Got To Fly" Serenity & BSG Tribute Album

Saturday 8 November 2008, by Webmaster

Singer and composer Marian Call became a fan of Firefly and Battlestar Galactica fairly recently, though she’s been a certified geek since birth. Like many inspired fans, she turned her artistic bent toward her new obsessions. The result is a tribute album full of new and remastered songs, all dedicated to the spirit of the shows she loves and published exclusively by Quantum Mechanix and Black Market Beagles.

It all started when the team at QMx heard her song "It was Good for You Too," written about Yo-Saff-Bridge of Firefly fame. It was clear that Ms. Call’s work was a step above the usual fan fare. And, more than anything else, we wanted to hear more – a whole lot more.

That’s when we decided to commission and sponsor a whole new album, written, recorded, and produced especially for you, our customers. The CD will be available only from QMx, and only 1,000 hand-signed and numbered discs will be pressed. After the first print is gone, the tracks will only be available as a digital download.

The songs on Marian’s new album "Got to Fly" are inspired by Firefly/Serenity and Battlestar Galactica, and by the fans and friends she’s met by coming out of the closet as a nerd:

"Good Old Girl" is about Starbuck and the ships she flies; "Dark Dark Eyes" is for River, "It’s Good to Have Jayne on Your Side" is, well, obvious. The spunky, unapologetic nerd anthem "I’ll Still Be a Geek After Nobody Thinks It’s Chic" will doubtless make you bob your head in awkward agreement as you listen.

We’ve included samples of some of the tracks to the right to give you a taste of what Marian has crafted for QMx and her beloved fellow geeks everywhere.

You can find Marian in person on her MySpace page or on Twitter. She will also be performing "Got to Fly" live at Creation Entertainment’s Tribute to Firefly and Serenity, November 22-23 in Burbank, CA. "Got to Fly" will be available for the first time at the show for just $15.95.
