Soundtracks of the movies "BraveHeart" and/or "Lord of the rings"
The "Gladiator" soundtrack would also probably be good...some very nice 'epic battle' music there.
Ty, 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!
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.
Your co-workers wre interrupting you? I think we all probably read at work
Also: Padan Fain at Shayol Ghul: "Creep", by Radiohead
Oooh good one! There was some great music in those movies.
"Time" from the Inception soundtrack.
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
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
Lan vs Demandred
Dance of Illusions
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!

Tell me as you listen to War pigs you dont see Perrin and his wolves cutting a swathe of destruction on the battlefiels , or Lan dealing death as opponents fall like wheat before the scythe!!!?? LOLOLOL WOOHOOO!!!!
In my head, I heard the theme from Excalibur throughout the LB.
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.
WE WILL Rock your champions!!! Now take it!!!!!!!!!
I like it!
It's really cheesy, but this is what I think the Last Battle's soundtrack is for me. It's really powerful music, and it just screams death and destruction.
