League of Legends 2015 World Championship (ft. Nicki Taylor)

I don’t remember how I found this song but I really like it. It’s a song I listened to while I writing one of my novels. I love how epic it is with the brass and percussion.

Off to the Races by Lana Del Rey (NSFW)

Lana Del Rey has been a favorite of mine for over six years. Her sound is so addictive and different and intoxicating. I recently rediscovered my love for this song when I put in the CD album of her album from the library into my new car’s CD player and it started playing. I’m listening to it on repeat right now going to work and back because I just absolutely love the beat, her voice, the unique energy.

Sugarcoat the Galaxy from Passengers

I absolutely loved the film Passengers; I remember it transported me away on every level in that theater, one of the reasons being it’s gorgeously written soundtrack. Watching the credits, I literally cried out loud, “Ahhhh that’s why I love it so much! That’s why it sounds like the Finding Nemo soundtrack!” which I also love to pieces. It was written by Thomas Newman. I absolutely love Newman’s musical work, so this soundtrack was an immediate favorite. I love the mixture of electronic elements with traditional instruments. It’s just SO atmospheric!

Trailer Music || Exodus: Gods and Kings

Firstly, this is fantastic music for a trailer. It hits all the right notes perfectly. I get chills almost every single time I listen to this song. It’s so haunting and grows to such an epic sound by its end. I love it so much. I also hold it very dear to my heart because it’s brought much of my own writing to vivid life in my imagination, more so than a lot of other songs. That sounds so dramatic, but as a writer, I cling to whatever can do that for me. I can see imagery of my own fantasies, vividly, to this piece of music. I just love that.

The Battle is to the Strong from Fate/Zero

This epic, brilliant battle track from the anime Fate/Zero was written by female musical composer Yuki Kajiura and is one of her many great pieces of sound. I absolutely love the vocals and percussion. And the electric guitar solo in the middle is fantastic!

Echoes in Rain by Enya

Like with most artists, I always LOVE a select few from their discography and feel “meh” or unattached to the rest of it. Enya is one of those artists for me, I love a select few of her songs. This is one of them. It’s fairly new but it’s so peaceful and plucky! I listened to this a lot during a college math class so it reminds me of that a lot!
