This rare one from the Bebop soundtrack really does it for me.

Whenever I listen to the bebop soundtrack I always end up picking out these three songs and listening to them over and over.
Gabriela Robin - Green Bird
Mai Yamane - Blue
Steve Conte - Rain

Rain is definitely my favorite song from entire thing.

Very sad song, but epic in its own way.


Oh wow, that one actually gave me goosebumps. That was really good. I don't remember what part it showed up in, though.

Pumpkin Party in Sea Hitler's Water Apocalypse (yes, that's the actual title):

Run
A Morning in Norkia
Dance of the Curse

Run for me is the song for a journey or striving for change. Dance of the Curse is about conflict and resolution. A Morning in Norkia is tranquility and satisfaction.

IIRC, it played in the cancellation episode that only aired in Japan.

Maybe not the best song ever, but I doubt anyone can deny just how much Holiday Road represents vacations and road trips so that has to qualify for this thread.

Well, do something about it then.

Black Sabbath - Supernaut. Sabbath has inspired so, so many bands they deserve being mentioned in a thread about epic music and this song is just incredible.

Plus bonus cover


Iron Maiden - Fear Of The Dark (Rock In Rio 2001) Quite possibly the greatest live song ever. Something in the range of 100,000 people singing along to a song is just incredible.

Although Rammstein's Du Hast is pretty ******* incredible as well.

There's too much epic music in the world for me to even begin linking it all. And it's all subjective anyway. Someone's epic music might not be epic to someone else. That increases the amount of epic music by a lot.

I could link the first 20 tracks by Howard Shore before moving on to John Williams, Trevor Rabin, James Newton Howard, Hans Zimmer and Harry Gregson-Williams. And those are just the composers I remember off the top of my head.

Pretty much anything by Two Steps From **** is epic, so I'll just leave this here.



Note: In case you're not familiar with Two Steps From ****, it's not what you think it is. They make trailer music, not heavy metal. Trailer music of epic proportions.

Foreign culture is awesome. It's just sad that when someone makes a thread about "epic music," it immediately devolves into "music played over an image of a small girl with way too much lace and way too large eyes falling over in a comedic way."

Where are the Berlioz tracks? The Bowie? I just don't see why people see the word "epic" and think first and foremost of anime.

Not all the music from animes linked is anything like that. One of the tracks I linked is played while viewing starships doing their things in space, or an epic return to an earth long ago taken from them. The other is played when the son of Satan fights his half brother(among other times). I don't recall lace in either of them.

What's next, someone gonna link Dovahkiin and you're gonna complain about the music that plays when someone's jumping on the heads of turtles?

That's awesome, the world could always use another lil' Hank fan. Smiley: smile

Was kind of posting it in jest (but you probably gathered that). When the phrase 'American Culture' popped up, the song came to mind as probably epitomizing the whole rural/conservative American mindset. A bit of tradition mixed with the appropriate amount of Smiley: tinfoilhat, or something.

But if I'm going to contribute in the country theme, my votes for the moment:

I think the broader point Ash was trying to make is that it's disheartening (at the very least) that a thread about epic music here devolves into mostly anime soundtrack discussion. I personally think anime (and by extension, anime freaks) sucks, but online gaming forums tend to take it to a ridiculously absurd level.

There is a whole wide world outside of poorly drawn (yes, that's right) japanese cartoons.

Seems like you're annoyed not because of anything about the song, but rather where it comes from. I linked three songs, all of them from anime. But they're all pretty much instrumental, and without looking them up you wouldn't have known they came from anime. Deadgye linked Rain by Steve Conte, an American artist singing an American song. But because he heard about it through an anime which you know of, it therefore ****** you off.

If you want to complain about something, complain about people basically linking the entire Bebop soundtrack.

I wouldn't know if this was the entire soundtrack or not, but yeah, that's kinda my point. The other songs may be perfectly OK instrumental songs, but then the videos linked are full of anime. Deliver one without the other and I might be more open.

One could also argue that had those who link those songs not heard them in the context of anime, they might not have thought they were that great to begin with (and certainly would not have linked them as "epic music"). If you think a piece of music is epic because of the piece of music, that's one thing. But what I think he's getting at is that if you think a piece of music is epic because it appeared in a film genre that you are a huge fan of, your opinion might not be as valid to anyone who is *not* a fan of the same genre.

Honestly, I listened to several of the linked music from anime sources and found none of them particularly noteworthy, much less epic. I suspect that people associate emotions and images in their minds to music based on what context they first heard it. I'll freely admit, for example, that people who are not fans of Firefly likely will not have anywhere near the same opinion of the Ballad of Serenity as I do. And if I were to link to "epic music" that would not be a piece I would link. Because I'm aware that most people will find it "meh".

That's kinda included within his complaint though, so win/win, right?

So when you are changing your name to BigotryDuck? The three videos I linked have anime backgrounds because those are the first results that come up when you youtube the artist and the song. Smiley: oyvey

Pretty much no matter what you link most people are going to find it "meh," as a matter of differing tastes. I mostly just find the overreaction to anything mildly related to anime amusing.

I was more complaining about homogeneity. Bebop is mostly jazz tracks, and because they're all chosen to be a part of the show there's an underlying similar theme. I'm mostly interested in this thread because I'm looking for unique songs of merit. I like a lot of Hirasawa Susumu's songs, but I only bothered linking one because as a composer he doesn't have an exceptional amount of diversity in his style.

The title of the thread isn't "Music I think everyone else will find epic." It's "Epic music you can't stop listening to". If it's music you enjoy immensely that you listen to often, possibly even on repeat multiple times, it's kinda relevant to the thread as titled.

And if others wanna ***** about it, either argue because it's something to do, or just figure that

I just watched the Evangelion movies (Rebuild version), and I can't stop listening to Beautiful World by Utada Hikaru.
It was such a fitting song for the end credits.

I've recently been listening to Yuja Wang's concertos, like this one.
Orchestras always make things sound epic.
