What's the Score blogfest

Hi everyone!

So, this is my first ever blogfest. I'm kind of excited! The whole point behind the What's the Score blogfest is to create playlists/soundtracks (or share ones you've already made) for your WIP. This was SUPER easy for me because that's what I do anyway to help myself get in the right mindset for a particular scene/chapter. So, without further ado, I present my soundtrack for Dathan the Sorcerer (my current WIP):

From Richard Einhorn's Voices of Light:
  1. Interrogation
  2. Pater Noster
  3. Torture
  4. Sacrament
From Nobuo Uematsu's Final Fantasy 5 & 6 scores:
  1. Into the Darkness (FF5)
  2. Omen (FF6)
  3. Kefka
  4. Cyan's Theme
  5. The Inforgiven (sic)
  6. The Esper World
  7. Terra's Theme
  8. Relm's Theme
  9. The Fanatics
  10. The Mystic Forest
By Enya:
  1. Fallen Embers
  2. Tempus Vernum
From Mitch Leigh's Man of La Mancha:
  1. The Impossible Dream (the Quest)
By Loreena McKennitt:
  1. Ancient Pines
  2. The Mummers' Dance
From Gladiator:
  1. The Battle 
  2. Now We Are Free 

From the Chrono Trigger soundtrack:
  1. Frog's Theme
I expect most of you have never heard several of these. Go look them up! If you listen to these, you'll have a basic idea of the tone/mood of Dathan the Sorcerer. Also, I know I've been slacking the last few weeks, but I'm going to make it up. I just finished an amazing book and plan to post a review soon, there's another blogfest I'm interested in (though that's not until June 20), and a meme I need to respond to. So keep your eyes open for those posts in the next few days!


  1. I tried to comment earlier, but blogger appears to be broken again...

    Great "score". I love Loreena McKennitt. Mummer's Dance is on my list as well.!

    This is my second blogfest, and they are a blast.

  2. I LOVE Enya. Love. Most of my soundtracks include angry girl music! LOL At least my WIP does. Paramore and Evanescence. :)
    Your WIP sounds awesome by the way! :)

  3. Great list, Reece. I love that you have Enya and Lorena McKennitt. I haven't heard the Final Fantasy soundtracks, but now I might have to go and check them out.

    Thanks for playing along :)

  4. What a fun blogfest! And I LOVE Lorena McKennitt. I've recently discovered the value of soundtracks for my books-- they really help get me in the right mode when I need to write.

  5. It looks like I will have to look these up! :)

    Great blogfest post.

  6. Love the list!

    Just stop by to say hi. I'm doing the JuNoWriMo challenge this month as well!

  7. Stopping by touring the JuNoWriMo folks and was delighted to discover some new music. I haven't used soundtracks before, but this is a perfect opportunity to listen to a few. Thanks!

  8. What a cool idea for a blogfest! I haven't heard of a lot of these but I do know I like Enya and I bet I'd like a lot of the other ones.
