[filk] Pegasus: better brainstorms for S&S and Space Opera?

The brainstorms for the Sword and Sorcery and Space Opera songs for 2005 have only one problem.

Very few of them are actually S&S or Space Opera songs.

Does anyone have any better ideas?

Remember, to be eligable, songs need to not -ever- had won -- so anything on is ineligable.

Here's what I've got so far:

Space Opera:

Signy Malory, Fuel to Feed the Drive, and Rocket Ride (from the brainstorming list) are close enough.
Running a blank on other things -- maybe Galaxy Quest or Star Wars songs?

Sword and Sorcery:

Lammas Night
drawing a blank after that.
