Cowboy Bebop Wiki

Space Lion is a song from Cowboy Bebop, composed by Yoko Kanno and performed by the Seatbelts. Much like a majority of music from the series, this song is primarily instrumental.

The song was released on the Cowboy Bebop album, and the Cowboy Bebop Boxed Set, with the latter containing both the original and a different version known as the "music box version" with a time length of 1:34 with keyboards done by composer Yoko Kanno.

The song features as Faye Valentine spends time in the Rester House and as she talked with Gren in his apartment. Also, as Lin shot Spike Spiegel.[1] It is also featured in the session Jupiter Jazz Part 2 in the end credits, replacing The Real Folk Blues.[2]
