    Space Mountain soundtrack: new or old?

    Hey, all. Just a simple poll--out of curiosity, who prefers the old Saint-Saens/Dick Dale surf music for Space Mountain and who prefers the Michael Giacchino spy/sci fi music? I'm having a hard time deciding myself, though my long preference for the earlier Dick Dale track seems to be giving away to my newfound love for Giacchino's wild, wondrous-sounding music. Feel free to post your reasons, too.

    I preferred the original even if it sounded a little too "surfy." The first portion of the old soundtrack sounded very spacey to me. It was when the actual ride took off that it started to have a surf feel.

    I don't mind the current soundtrack, but it sounds an awful like "The Incredibles." I wouldn't mind a new piece to be created that incorporated both styles.

    I prefer the new version on the soundtrack. The new one seems to fit to the surroundings to me.

    I like em both, although the Dick Dale one sounds Munsters to me, while the Michael Giacchino sounds Lost In Space.

    I grew up (kinda) with the Dick Dale soundtrack, and as much as I've kinda gotten into the new one, it just doesn't do it for me.

    Now riding with neither music nor showlights?! That's the ticket!!!

    I prefer the Dick Dale vVersion to the current, but honestly I woudl be happy with no music and just having the sound of the coaster swooshing through the tracks!

    I've only experienced the coaster with the 2005 music, and I enjoyed it. I've heard the Dal separately and I love Dale, so I'd like to hear it with the ride. Not sure if I have a true preference, as I haven't had a chance to see both.

    I'm a big Dick Dale fan, and I loved the way his playing was incorporated into the track. I like the new music as well, but I'm glad we can still go to WDW and enjoy Space in silence!

    I prefer the new one. The old one was more tongue in cheek, retro, "beam me up scotty" kind of space. IMO, the new one sounds more like something you would expect to hear in space, if space had music.

    Dick Dale is where it's at--I think I prefer that version because it's what I knew my first time on the ride. I like the new version, but I just prefer the classics
