Slightly off topic but the other day I heard a live version of Roundabout by Yes at the grocery store. This version featured Benoit David singing.

I just heard a brief snippet of "Firth of fifth"(the guitar part in the middle)as part of a musical interlude on NPR. How cool is that? It was very brief and in the background but people like us can detect things like that a mile away. Smile

They very often in the show refer to people as dead who are not yet dead in our time.
Cool ref, anyway.

Rush seems to be the most popular reference in media. Trailer Park Boys has a few episodes where bubbles fanboys out for Rush

Here's a clip of Alex Lifeson and Bubbles playing Closer to the Heart together

On tonight’s episode of “The Last Man on Earth”:

 

Tandy (Will Forte) tries to cheer up Erica, in the midst of a difficult labor, by coming to her wearing a mask of Phil, the late father of Erica’s child, and talking like Phil (badly), telling her: “Things couldn’t be better up here in heaven.  I took up the guitar and starting jamming with Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon, and Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, and Tony Levin, a wonderful session bassist who’s worked with everyone from King Crimson to Mister Sledgehammer himself, Pete Gabriel.”

 

Unexpected but inaccurate, of course.  Which of their writers thought Tony Levin was dead?  He confused him with Chris Squire, maybe?

Tonight’s episode of “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” featured the Moody Blues’ Have You Heard in the opening scene, and again towards the end.

I just finished watching "Stranger Things" on Netflix. In episode six, I recognized "Exit" by Tangerine Dream. There may have been TD tracks in other episodes as well. Even the original music composed for the series feels like stuff that could have been on TD albums in the early 80s (which is when the show is set).

The thing about this Quicksilver is that he has all the prog/classic rock references... but when his slow motion scenes come in, they use some rather poppy music from the time instead (though they actually work very nice with the scenes).

Just saw X-men: Apocalypse, and Quicksilver still has the Animals poster in his room, as well as a Signals tour poster for Rush.

Tonight I was watching an episode of the Syfy channel's series "12 Monkeys" (season 2, episode 5). The character Jennifer Gaines is mentally unstable. She blurts out "Me, I'm a lawnmower. You can tell me by the way I walk."

The guy must be a prog fan. In Days of Future Past he's wearing a Floyd shirt, in Apocalypse he has the "Animals" album cover in his room and now this. 
I shook my head and smiled a whisper knowing all about the place

Again, not especially unexpected, but worth reporting on:


Yesterday’s All Things Considered on NPR ran a feature on Carla Bley’s latest project:

In this show Vinyl, a record company in the 70s were observing a band that was a completely overdone rendition of Gentle Giant

"You know what uranium is, right?
It’s this thing called nuclear weapons.
And other things.
Like lots of things are done with uranium.
Including some bad things.
But nobody talks about that."

On the last season of “Friends,” the episode “The One With Ross’s Grant”, Phoebe gives Rachel her black book of all the guys she’s dated, and a few pages in, Rachel asks: “Isn’t Jethro Tull a band?”  Phoebe smiles coyly and replies, “Oh, yes, they are.”

Not especially unexpected, given the era it’s set in, but…

On the 4/13 episode of the ABC series “The Goldbergs”, titled “Rush,” the daughter, Erica, is turned on to prog-rock, specifically Rush, by a classmate, and is inspired to join a Rush cover band.
