Eumir Deodato Trio “Also Sprach Zarathustra”
from Ao Vivo No Rio MP3 Album (Biscoito Fino www.biscoitofino.com.br 2007) —A jazz-funk interpretation of the majestic Richard Strauss composition that's heard as a leitmotif throughout Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Deodato is a Braziian musician who scored a surprise hit with this song in the early 1970s.

composed by Gyorgy Ligeti
from 2001: A Space Odyssey Soundtrack MP3 Album (Turner Classic Movies Music/Rhino Movie Music 1996) —Modernistic "polyphonic" classical music by the Romanian composer Gyorgy Ligeti, eerily featured during each encounter with the monoliths of 2001.

from Ultimate Classical Theme Collection - Thirty Second Excerpts from 200+ Most Popular Classics of All Time MP3 Comp (Point Classics 2011) —The first song heard after the famous "match cut" from prehistoric bone to a 20th-Century nuclear-weapon platform satellite in 2001.

Bell Laboratories & D.H. Van Lenten “Synthesized computer speech demonstration”
from First Philadelphia Computer Music Festival MP3 Album (Creative Computing 1978) —Excerpt from VintageComputerMusic.com. Early computer programmers used Harry Dacre's "Daisy Bell" (aka "On a Bicycle Built for Two") to "teach" early computers to communicate verbally, and to sing, one inspiration for the "death" of Hal 9000 in 2001.
Alex North “Moon Rocket Bus”
from 2001: The Legendary Original Score MP3 Album (Dylanna Music/TuneCore 2012) —Music bed for voiceover back announcement/commentary. Kubrick's classical temporary music cues displaced North's commissioned score, which was inventive but more pedestrian than the works included. This song features some classic 50s sci-fi vocalise.
The Beatles “FLYING”
composed by John Lennon & Paul McCartney
from Magical Mystery Tour LP Album (Capitol 1967) —The experimental Beatles film MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR features outtakes from the psychedelic "Stargate" sequence from 2001. John Lennon once said that "2001 should be shown everyday in a cathedral."

Mauro Campobasso & Mauro Manzoni Quartet “Kubrick Beyond the Infinite”
from Ears Wide Shut (Homage to Stanley Kubrick) MP3 Album (Parco della Musica Records 2011) —Great Art evokes man's deepest thoughts, & reality, stimulating speculation through complexity, puzzlement, & mysterious beauty. 2001 is a pinnacle of Hollywood cinema by which most sci-fi films pale in comparison. ¡Viva Kubrick! See the LACMA exhibit!
