  1. Great idea, and one that I've thought about myself for quite some time. I know I have a bunch of recommendations somewhere in my mind, but at the moment here's a couple that come to mind.

    Cosmik Debris by Frank Zappa:

    And I'm not sure if you're interested beyond popular music, but one of my favorite pieces of music that I would love to make known to skeptics is over 250 years old.
    Handel - As Steals the Morn:

    text: As steals the morn upon the night,
    And melts the shades away:
    So Truth does Fancy's charm dissolve,
    And rising Reason puts to flight
    The fumes that did the mind involve,
    Restoring intellectual day.

    It seems to me to be a clear reference to the enlightenment.
