Also Sprach Zarathustra (translated in English to Thus Spoke Zarathustra) was written by Richard Strauss and named for Nietzsche's novel. A song for all and none, you can hear it in the opening scene of 2001: A Space Odyssey. The song of the day, however, is Jupiter and Beyond, also featured in 2001. It's written and performed by the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. Below is part 1 of the song (it's 15+ minutes). Go to youtube for parts 2 and 3 if you can handle it.
