Music Inspiration - Part 1

I listen to a lot of music while I'm writing, which is weird because I was never had a CD collection or went to live shows when I was younger. Somehow Trailer Music became popular with the advent of YouTube, and somehow I stumbled into it... and it's been a pretty happy pairing ever since.

Trailer Music is basically what it sounds like - it's music that's made for movie or television show trailers. It has to emotive because it's usually only going to be used in a quick ad and it needs to really beef up whatever it is the show is trying to convey. This makes it perfect for a writer who is trying to come up with a suitably heavy scene. I love to get this music playing in the background, tap into the feels, and go to town. Whatever emotion you're going for, there is going to be a slew of Trailer songs out there that express it perfectly. 

I don't know about anyone else, but I use YouTube's "like" function as a sort of personal playlist, not to actually show my appreciation or support of creator's content. Which is terrible, now that I've written it down... but anyway! While I've got over 300 likes, I'm not going to drown you in each and every one.

So with that in mind, I've gone through and selected my top 25 Trailer Music songs that I use for inspiration. I'll drip feed them to you over the next... however long, I'm not sure yet. Most of these will be new to you, but it's likely you'll recognize at least some parts of a few of them. They are used in trailers, after all.
