** "Wander My Friends" really does deserve a special mention as it's a reoccurring theme that shows up after a victory, or during times of celebrations, in crowd shots when you can see all of the Galactican crew. Its a very hopeful song, that sends a sense of comfort and togetherness. The name itself, combined with the sound of the music, feels like the sentimental message from one friend to another, that they are proud of that person, and hope that their journey continues. A total CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when ever it shows up. It is best remembered though for its first appearance is 'The Hand Of God', after the pilots successfully secure the fuel plant and return to mass celebrations aboard Galactica, and when the whole crew shows up to see Lee off one last time.
*** The lyrics, though sung in Irish, translate to pretty much exactly what is mentioned above. Two old friends, tired and weary, having lost so many people, but still determined to push on and finish their journey together. Rather like Adama and the Galactica.

* [[spoiler:Starbuck]]'s piano version of ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9c2ZJPKz5u8 All Along the Watchtower]]'' from season 4 was a literal jaw-dropper. Not only is the song awesome on its own terms, but the way the song was played in that episode answered at least two of the season's biggest mysteries at the same moment.

** Neither is the final piece of music in the series. [[spoiler: ''All Along the Watchtower'' - played by Hendrix.]]
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlcUwUwjLrs Prelude to War]]'' and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=so10dKbhorI Storming New Caprica]]'' are truly epic.
** Prelude to War is particularly epic in context -- the scene where it's first introduced is flawlessly cut with the music, to the point where Adama hangs up the phone on the downbeat.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vogXU33BO30 Assault on]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMzkuKAIoL4 the Colony]]''. An extremely epic '''fifteen-minute long''' piece.

* Heart Of The Sun, in particular, slips in the opening bars of the original Galactica theme/Colonial Anthem - [[TearJerker just as Galactica herself disappears into the Sun.]]
