Basil Poledouris would be an inspired choice for a classical-themed composer for a soundtrack to a Chronicles movie adaptation. The director's choice to score "Conan the Barbarian" with Poledouris' soundtrack instead of the originally-intended rock and roll music elevated it from B movie to major cinematic event.

My tribute web site has a listing of songs for each significant scene in the First and Second Chronicles and I'm happy to entertain any new suggestions you may have.

I can (having listened to the suggested piece). The problem devolves down to personal taste. This is where symphonic scores have an enormous advantage over any type of modern (insert your genre). They can, generally, be acceptable to a much larger number of people than your typical rock/pop/"alternative", or whatever 'songs'. 500 people could post their ideas here and they would all be different, and none of them would agree - but the symphonic score would be accepted by at least 2/3 of them, if it was not completely incompetent. So one person's given taste would be acceptable/seem appropriate to 1% of the movie-going population, but it would never sell the movie to the other 99%.

I have no idea about the movie theme,but if someone made a TC tribute,these songs would be great
(Thomas Covenant tribute) Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGrM1sh-8pE or Hopeless http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHDdR9lWfUI&feature=related
(Covenant/Foul tribute) Crawl by BB http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eptgtJU9ja0&feature=related

I don't know why,but TC seems to fit quite well in BB's songs (at least the ones from this album) Smile

................. AWESOME!!! .................... LOL!!!!!LOL would that involve Treat Williams being Mhoram? hehe


"Black" by Pearljam, good song for TCs bitter memories while standing outside the Bell Telephone Office. though i know the movie would be better with an Orchestra, I think that song would do well played at a low level throughout the thoughts of his past before the kid pulls on his sleeve to get his attention. but then again i also thought that the Trooper by Iron Maiden would be great Battle music while showing the charge that Quan, Verement and Callendrill were fighting while waiting to run to Dooms retreat. if you remove some of the lyrics it fits...and if you remove all the lyrics you still have great battle music Very Happy

Would this be Linden's theme tune, Covenant Woman (cover of a Bob Dylan song by Hannah Cohen).

Did anyone mention "Red Skies" by The Fixx, to be used where it best fits in the first book, where the sky is red?

Looks like you're the first one to mention it on this thread!

I'm going to throw in an obscure song by NEEDTOBREATHE:
"A Place Only You Can Go"
Pain is alive in a broken heart
The past never does go away
We were born to love
And we're born to pay
The price for our mistakes

Grace, she comes with a heavy load
Memories, they can't be erased
Like a pill I swallow, he makes me well
But leaves an awful taste...


And welcome to the Watch, thaum!
