Summer Glau inspired songs

Summer Glau's singular talent and universal appeal have garnered her millions of fans around the world (some of them have find a home here) but she is also a source of inspiration for artists and musicians. Don't expect to find Summer Glau references in Kate Perry or Justin Bieber's latest album though; the artists listed below are independants artists whose music is in most cases freely available for all on the Net.
Here's a non exhaustive list of musical works directly or indirectly inspired by Summer Glau:

Summer Glau song by John Anealio

'Summer Glau' by John Anealio
With little more than an alternate-tuned acoustic guitar and a dog-eared copy of The Hobbit, Sci-Fi Songwriter John Anealio composes and performs geeky anthems for writers, librarians, lovers of Science Fiction, Best Buy customers, and robots. His music sounds like John Mayer, Weezer, and James Taylor playing Dungeons and Dragons together on their iPhones. 
This performance of "Summer Glau" was recorded at a House Concert in Maryland in December 2010.

Listen to an excerpt of Anealio's song on Amazon.

3. Albatross 03:17, featuring the incredibly talented Summer Glau, performing in the show "Firefly" and audio content from the movie "Serenity". 
The unfiltered, raw sound of this song is intended to mimic the way River is unable to filter her emotions because of her stripped amygdalae.

My favorite track on Elliot Frost's album 'Firestep' is not the one with a River theme but the one dedicated to Alan Tudyk, 'A Leaf on the Wind'.

John Anealio gave us the permission to use his song "Summer Glau" for the tribute video for the Summer Glau wiki 2013 calendar.
