"the glade" by randy Edelman & trevor jones

soundtrack: "last of the mohicans"


Probably the softest/slowest song on the list, but Tamuril does have her own theme song here. This represents her best moments with Willven and watching over his family.


"The Glade" by Randy Edelman & Trevor Jones, OST Last of the Mohicans

"Wicked world" by cold

American grunge/alternative band formed in 1996. I first saw them perform after a hiatus with a new album in 2011 when they opened for the Danish band "Volbeat" in my city. This was the opener of that concert.


This song is, frankly, for the Valsharess and no one else.


There’s blood on the gun
That’s in your hand
And the murder in front of you
Send out the wolves
The King is dead
Little pills taking over

This means war
Did the sun just burn out
Leaving you all alone

Living in a wicked world
We’re living in a wicked world
There’s no way you will escape
No one ever gets away


"Wicked World," by Cold (official)

"Someone else's dream" by faderhead

My same beloved German electronica producer who remains a strong voice for Shyntre and the struggle in the Underdark.


This song was not available on YouTube at the time I wanted to share it with the release of his new album last year.  The official version was just posted today, March 4, 2015, and had 11 views when I found it. It is a sign that I should add this to the website playlist. ;)


This song is primarily for Auslan, Shyntre, and Sirana. These are the entire lyrics, and fit so well in word and action (I imagine an urgent search, like at the end of Ch 22).


I'll always be happy in the place where I'm not!

Horizons are my fate
An endless hour wait
The light inside me fades
A ghost remains in me
And nothing else is here
The emptiness of day

And someone's always living someone else's dream
You don't know the way

The sun is rising late
The tired heroes wait
Leave you for myself
A ghost remains in me
Cause nothing else is here
The emptiness of day


"Someone Else's Dream," by Faderhead (official)

"Spectrum" by Florence + the Machine

The same English Indie band with a powerful female voice, who made the best song for Sirana, also made the best song for the Deities of Miurag.


This song initially always placed me in the Red Sands with Auslan, particularly when his real name became known. It still does, less the character but more what he represents. With Chapter 23, especially, this song best reflects the guardianship as a whole: Mother, Father, Musanlo the Brother, the Sisters, and Nyx.


When we first came here
We were cold and we were clear
With no colors in our skin
We were light and paper thin

And when we first came here
we were cold and we were clear
With no colors in our skin
'Til we let the spectrum in

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again


"Spectrum," by Florence + the Machine

"Breathe," by abney park

Another song from their more Goth/Industrial days.


I stumbled once again on this song as I worked through Chapter 26 of Surfacing (an Underdark chapter). I always liked it, but now it leaped out strongly as a song might well encapsulate some of Phaelous's more private thoughts linked with Varessa D'Shea and his own position in the City.


I wish I could breath, I wish I could stand.
I wish I had a chance here holding your hand.
Wish I could speak, I wish could talk
I wish I could breathe

I grasp at my heart that burns in my chest,
It's your precious art that makes my soul stressed.
I run short of blood, light-headed I swoon.
I wish I could breathe.

I fear I can't overcome this place
I know your face, your hands
I wish I could breathe.


Wish I could breathe
Wish I could fall
Wish I could think nothing at all
Wish I could talk
Wish I could speak
Wish I could breathe


"Breathe," by Abney Park (album recording)

"Elk hunt" by randy Edelman & trevor jones

soundtrack: "last of the mohicans"

I have loved this romantic adventure movie since it came out in 1992. The music is transcendent from beginning to end.


Instrumental and not long, but I get such strong images of Mourn running over the Surface of Miurag in his quadruped form and, honestly, Sirana in a future scene, that it is always welcome on the playlist.
