    The "Gladiator" soundtrack would also probably be good...some very nice 'epic battle' music there.

    :lolTy, these are three of my favorite poems, Thank you for posting them. I think the Charge of the Last Brigade is especially fiiting for the last battle. The fighters didn't know their commanders minds were being comprimised, at least a few must of wondered at their odd orders, but the fought on as directed anyway. All kept fighting knowing this was their last charge. Those poems are so inspiring, thanks again!

    As for music; When the front lines are getting hit by Balefire - "Silhouettes", by the Postal Service.

    When Rand is riding off at the end - "First Day of My Life", by Bright Eyes

    When Suian/Gareth and Davram/Deira die - "I Will Follow You Into the Dark", by Death Cab

    and maybe the most fitting song: "Gawyn Trakand" stars as - "Little Lion Man", by Mumford & Sons! :lol

    I like to listen to music when I read, although when I was trying to read AMoL my family and co-workers kept interrupting me!!

    I don't have any songs off the top of my head, but I have to agree that many of the ones posted are really appropriate!

    I had "I Don't Think Now is the Best Time," the music for the huge battle from Pirates of the Caribbean 3, running through my head for the entire Last Battle.

    Also, I agree that Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night fits the battle perfectly.

    This song reminds me of the very end of the last book, I think its sad and sweet and can accompany any of those last moments after the Last Battle ^^

    Clannad "Of this land"

    Can someone give me props for thinking of Little Lion Man by Mumford & Sons for Gawyn :p

    I know it wouldn't be on a real soundtrack, but I thought it was increditabley witty of me ^^

    Heres the link if you haven't heard it (for those 18 or older)

    Props you you, Arecias. That song actually fits Gawyn's situation very well.

    Why thank you Owin! I thought it was funny because of the Lion/Andor thing, and of course Gawyn really "screwing" up this time

    I'm not all that knowledgeable about poetry nor do I read much of it but those poems Ty posted were absolutely amazing. I've heard of them all before but have never read them all the way through. They are perfect fits for those scenes as well. Thanks for posting them Ty!

    I have to say 'We Are the Champions', 'We are Not Going to Take it', and 'We Will Rock you' are the ones that come to mind for me.
